Bharathidasan university is planning to offer 4 year bachelor’s degree programs ( B.S.) in Computer Science, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Geoscience disciplines. The maximum intake will be 20 students per course.  In addition, BU will also offer Bachelor’s program in Electronics through its affiliated colleges.

The Vice Chancellor, Mr. M. Ponnavaikko announced that the university had approached the Association of Indian Universities and Anna University (Tamil Nadu) to consider these courses as equivalent to B.E. and B.Tech programs. This is good for the students coming out of these programs to have the recognition for higher studies.

This idea has been approved by UGC.
