Tamil University, Thanjavur
Welcome to Tamil University’s ICT Division, Thanjavur
The University since its inception in 1985 has functioned as a high-level research centre in Tamil language, literature and culture. We take pride in our dynamic and outstanding faculty, innovative pedagogical practices, state-of-art infrastructure, and multi-disciplinary academic programmes at undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral levels. It is a unitary type of university meant for higher research, with no affiliated colleges. Initially, the university focused only on research. Later this University started spreading its wings for the cause of academic training of the youth. In 1992, the University started conducting academic research by offering M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes in various disciplines.
After a decade, the scope was further broadened. In 2002, Post Graduate courses in humanities were introduced, and subsequently in 2005, PG Courses in Sciences were included to meet the aspirations of Tamil society. Certificate and Diploma courses were added eventually. The Directorate of Distance Education was a turning point with various certificates, diploma and degree courses getting popular among the students. By this way, research and teaching have become the integral part of the University’s academic programmes.
Our challenge is to help to generate ideas that will benefit society, and to educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued both for their specialised knowledge, and for their ability to research, communicate and solve problems. Our primary objective has been in preserving the rich ancient Tamil culture and Literature, however, with rise in technology we are inviting students from all over the world who want to embrace our legacy.
The ICT Enabled Division will foster students who are deprived of quality education. The courses are designed around the learner. It accommodates multiple learning styles using a variety of delivery methods for easy comprehension. The Learning is self-paced and gives students a chance to speed up or slow down as necessary. We have trained staff to assist students with choosing the right program resonating their dreams and career goals.
The ICT Division will offer a fresh, easy-to-navigate, modern and professional tool of learning. Tamil University is committed to promoting and sustaining academic excellence and socially relevant education. I insist that every aspiring student should overcome all the barriers and live larger than life. I am confident that the ICT revolution will be a very successful development this academic year supporting the realization of your educational goals.
On behalf of the Tamil University and the entire faculty and staff members, I wish you all the best in your academic pursuits.
