Developing academic curricula for Universities to meet petroleum industry's needs - An industry perspective

by Dr. Sunil Bharati

October 2008

redefining redesigning academic curriculum background constraints
Cairn India Ltd – Petrofed Brainstorming Session 17 Oct 2008 – Sunil BharatiRedefining & redesigning academic curriculum - Background & constraints
  • Universities & institutes currently teaching “text-book” based & textbook inspired courses
  • In many cases, text books are outdated while the “world has moved on”
  • Industry-background people are neither taking courses nor participating in shaping education
  • Inadequate Research initiatives and lack of quality projects in India
  • Practically no access to high-quality data and modern technology
redefining redesigning academic curriculum why do it
Cairn India Ltd – Petrofed Brainstorming Session 17 Oct 2008 – Sunil BharatiRedefining & redesigning academic curriculum – Why do it
  • Only two Indian universities / institutes figure in world’s top 200 (teaching standards, teaching aids, patents, publications etc)
  • Industry is a definitive next step on completion of education
  • Lesser efforts and resources are required to bring new entrants to the mark and make them productive
  • Industry will always look for the best talent – irrespective where it is available – at home or abroad
  • Universities’ must establish the reputation of “the best” first at home – a process we think will take 5-8 years
redefining redesigning academic curriculum way forward
Cairn India Ltd – Petrofed Brainstorming Session 17 Oct 2008 – Sunil BharatiRedefining & redesigning academic curriculum – Way forward
  • Best example – Entire North Sea has become a huge natural laboratory
  • Joint Industry Projects (JIP)
  • Mandatory research funding by industry (% of net profits) with clear accountability and deliverables
  • Hands-on practicals for students & faculty using industry data and industry field examples
  • Joint Industry-University committees/commission, which is adequately empowered and mandated
  • Develop and run selected “Centers of Excellence” – true excellence !
  • Clear and well defined KPIs for universities and all umbrella bodies
redefining redesigning academic curriculum challenges and decisive factors
Cairn India Ltd – Petrofed Brainstorming Session 17 Oct 2008 – Sunil BharatiRedefining & redesigning academic curriculum – Challenges and decisive factors
  • Industry’s mandate and primary role is not teaching ; its accountability is to the shareholders
  • Industry’s main limitation is TIME ; University’s main limitation is FUNDS
  • Universities must pick up the ball and run
  • Incentives and compensation packages of academic faculty
  • Paradigm shift in mindset and visible, quick change required
  • Train the faculty to take that next big lead forward
  • Benefits and “cost of lost opportunity” must be boldly outlined
