One such course is drug and pollution testing laboratory (DPTL). Dr Preet Mohinder Singh Bedi, who is the coordinator, said a large number of students passing the intermediate examination were looking for short courses. "On the demand of students, we started short-term programmes, including water and waste water analysis, air monitoring and analysis and instrumental methods of analysis. Short-term courses are like career-boosting opportunities for students," he said.

Dr Bedi said, "These courses help students in enhancing their skills and acquire more knowledge on core subjects. In a way, it helps the students in gaining more information, different perspectives and an in-depth understanding of vital subjects or topics which a student is willing to know more about."

He informed that the DPTL was established as per the decision of the Syndicate. "It was set up for providing a wide range of testing services independently. Its main objective is to carry out high-end testing, consultancy and research," he said.

Dr Bedi said these courses have been designed to aid in understanding operation, daily working, analysis, calibration, troubleshooting and software handling. On-site training programmes may also be offered as per the specific requirement. The university will provide a certificate after evaluating performance of each student in every module.
