Jobs aplenty for Home Science graduates


Earlier women preferred home science subject for bettering their own homes and living conditions.But, now they take up the subject for seeking employment outside the homes.This is not wrong as there abundant opportunities for them in this field, Arindham Basu, Director, South India Textile Research Association, said here on Friday.He was inaugurating a two-day Southern Regional Seminar on “Gearing Home Science Curriculum towards Better Career Prospects”, jointly organised by the Home Science Association of India (HSAI), South Zone, and Avinashilingam Advanced Centre for Education and Research in Basic Sciences, at the Avinashilingam University for Women.

“Since there is a great demand for home science graduates, what they are taught should be given importance. There is a need for the curriculum of such subjects to be revamped every five years. If we do not modify such disciplines, then our students will be left behind. It is essential that the curriculum be designed in such a manner that the home science graduates are industry-ready when they step out of the institution,” Mr. Basu said.

He stressed the importance of college/ university education and said that graduates should be able to face the industry even without industrial training. The value of such students in the industry would be very high.
