DBT-STAR COLLEGE SCHEME

The Star College Scheme was initiated by DBT in 2008 to support colleges and universities offering undergraduate education to improve science teaching across the country. This Scheme was launched for improving critical thinking and encouraging ‘hands on’ experimental science at undergraduate level in basic science subjects. On a larger perspective, the scheme was initiated envisioning that it shall encourage more students to take up higher education in science. Through this scheme the Department identifies colleges with potential for excellence and provides support for developing infrastructure for academics and laboratory activities. This support is in turn expected to invigorate teaching and provide unique exposure of students to experimental science. The scheme also acts as a catalyst in igniting young minds (faculty and students) to engage in networking, exposure visits to research institutes and industries and apply for research grants in order to prepare them for future challenges after the successful completion of their undergraduate courses. The American College, Madurai has received the DBT – Star college scheme from the year 2018-2019.

Outcome :

The following modifications are carried out in the curriculum to benefit the students of life sciences and promote life sciences research among science students –  

  • A two–semester lab cum theory course is offered to students of chemistry department
  • A life skill course on “Bio-Medical instrumentation” with hands on training is introduced in the final year curriculum and is open to students of life science
  • An intercollegiate science awareness program was conducted in collaboration with “Breakthrough science society” on 28th February, 2019
  • A “Temperature and Humidity Sensor” is successfully constructed by 3rd year Physics students (16 PHY 32, 44, 52) as part of their project course
  • A project on the effect of carbon dioxide on the temperature of the earth atmosphere done by 3rd year Physics students (16 PHY 16, 18, 67) as part of their project course
  • Project on “Biosynthesis of ZnO nanostructure from plant extract for antibacterial applications” is done by 3rd year Physics students (17 PHY 30, 31, 32) as part of their project course
  • Project on “Water Irrigation System using Arduino” is successfully constructed by 3rd year Physics students (17 PHY 39, 61, 66) as part of their project course
  • Project on “e-farming using soil moisture using Arduino” is done by 3rd year Physics students (17 PHY 25, 41, 73) as part of their project course
