Bangalore: Mount Carmel College, Bangalore known as premier girls-only institution is all set to open postgraduate section for boys.
A proposal had been sent to Bangalore University in the month of March, seeking permission to grant the approval to offer post graduation courses to boys.
Following the request made, the university's academic council has approved the proposal on Thursday.
Speaking to TOI, Principal Sr Arpana said the college has state-of-the-art infrastructure, well-equipped laboratories and research facilities.
"There was a huge demand for PG courses in electronics and nanotechnology from boys. And since MCC has all the necessary facilities for this, we thought of offering course to boys. As of now, only a certain percentage of seats will be allotted for boys as our new campus is not yet ready and classes will continue in the Vasanthnagar campus," she added.
However, BU vice-chancellor B Thimme Gowda said "Once the government gives permission, they can start offering PG courses for boys too."
