VTU to set up hi-tech valuation centre in Davangere soon

DHARWAD: The Visvesvaraya Technological University, which has 186 engineering colleges across the state under its purview will set up a hi-tech valuation centre at Davanagere soon.

The new centre will come up on a sprawling 15-acre land adjoining the national highway near Kunduwad off Davanagere and is allotted to VTU by the Karnatak Housing Board. The centre will be well-equipped with modern facilities like high speed scanner and networking with all the colleges under the VTU.

The use of a high speed scanner will enable quick announcement of results and quick dispatch of marks cards. According to VTU V-C H Maheshappa, nearly 25 lakh answer scripts are evaluated at four centres situated at Bangalore,Mysore, Gulbarga and Belgaum every semester. The examiners will be provided food and accommodation at the valuation centre so that they do not waste time commuting to the centre.

The new centre is expected to be ready in two years, sources said. A teacher's training centre will also be set up on the same campus.
