The University
The Sikkim Manipal University of Health, Medical and Technological Sciences (SMU),
Gangtok is incorporated under the State Legislative Act (Act IX of 1995) of the
Government of Sikkim. It is recognized by the Union Ministry of Human Resource
Development and by the University Grants Commission. SMU's Degrees/
Diplomas/Certificates are recognized by all members of the Association of Indian
Universities (AIU) and are at par with Degrees/Diplomas/Certificates of all Indian
Universities/Deemed Universities/Institutions vide UGC Circular No FI-B/92 (CPP) dated
February 1992 & AIU Circular No EV/B(449)/94/176915-177115 dated January, 1994.

The University was set up in partnership between the Manipal Education and Medical
Group and the Government of Sikkim with the objective of offering quality education to
students and working professionals. Apart from regular on-site courses, the University
offers many career oriented courses via distance education. These courses are offered
as part of its effort to bring education to the masses, fulfill the growing demand for
professionals. Manipal Universal Learning, which is the Learning Resource
Development Center (LRDC) for SMU, delivers these programs.

The courses include Master's, Bachelor's, Diploma and Post Graduate Diploma
programs. Twinning programs have also been launched in collaboration with IT
organizations. The main advantage that distance education offers students is in
providing requirement-based and career oriented programs while making flexible
course offerings, delivery systems and processes. The University uses a strong
nationwide network of Learning Centers to deliver its programs. This enables a student
to choose a Learning Center that is easily accessible to him/her.

These Learning Centers act as access points for the purpose of advising, counselling or
rendering any assistance required by the students in context of the University’s distance
education programs. To improve the quality of lectures and faculty presentations, the
University recognized Learning Centers have been equipped with an effective interactive
distance learning system that makes use of VSAT technology. These presentations,

IT, Management
and other career areas
Information Technology has been the greatest agent of change and promises to play an
even bigger role in the coming years. Information Technology is changing every aspect
of human life - be it in communication, trade, manufacturing, services, culture,
entertainment, education, research, defence or global security. It is breaking age old
barriers and building new connections in a fast emerging global village and will soon
become the chief determinant in the progress of nations, communities and individuals.
The Government of India has recognized the potential of Information Technology in the
all-round development of the nation. The National Agenda for Governance has identified
Information Technology as one area where India can quickly establish global
dominance. Hence, it has mandated the Government to take the necessary policy and
program related initiatives to facilitate India's emergence as an Information Technology
Superpower in the shortest possible time. Information Technology can prove to be a
treasure trove with tremendous pay-offs in terms of wealth creation and generation of
high quality employment.
The recommendations of the National Task Force on Information Technology cover a
wide spectrum of issues. It includes telecommunications, finance, banking, revenue,
commerce, electronics, human resource development, defence and rural development.
It also addresses critical national needs in the areas of information infrastructure,
internet access, software development & exports, hardware manufacture, electronic
commerce, research in IT, manpower training and education.
Today IT and telecom have blended into a single integrated system. This acceleration in
service levels could be extended to every citizen and multiplied across user segments.
The growth of IT and telecommunications in India has proved that data processing into
information is a profitable business proposition. By the end of this decade, the entire
country will have IT-enabled services in the fields of customer interaction, finance and
accounting, data search and integration, e-education, tele-medicine and e-governance.
Banking & Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) continues to be the largest vertical,
garnering 39 per cent of software development. Service exports, retail, manufacturing,
healthcare and telecom services are the new emerging areas.

Page 06
India is also emerging as a hub for application outsourcing, custom application
development, embedded software, offshore product development, research and
development. India's offshore services, which contributed over $5.4 billion to the
country's export revenues, are expected to reach $8.5 billion in 2005-06. The country's
e-governance policies, with a proposed outlay of $560 million, will also result in the
growth of such projects in India.
The software industry in India is nearly $10 billion strong, with a flat domestic market of
$ 2 billion contributing to 16 percent of the nation's exports. In the next two decades, the
nation's GDP is expected to double - the software industry's contribution is expected to
increase at least ten fold. The software and hardware industries will become a
formidable component of the nation's wealth. India has tremendous market potential in
the areas of tele-education, tele-medicine, infotainment, e-governance and other
relevant fields. If provided with the much needed thrust, Information Technology can
touch every single individual of India's one billion populace.
While we see the growth of the software industry, one should not forget that this has also
accompanied investments on hardware of foreign origin. The rapid penetration of cell
phones and the possible standardization of "Citizen Smart Cards" shows that, by proper
planning, the country could find emerging opportunities in the hardware industry.
Outsourcing of Information Technology (IT) jobs will continue, and one out of every four
high-technology jobs in developed nations today may be outsourced to emerging
markets such as India by 2010, according to the research firm Gartner Inc. In terms of
offshore centers, India remains the undisputed leader, with China and Russia emerging
as strong contenders. Using high-speed telecommunications, India-based firms offer
services including insurance claims processing, payroll accounting, data tabulation and
equity research to clients or overseas parent companies located around the world.
Jobs in India's booming software services sector grew to 23 per cent in the year ending
March 2004, as the sector benefitted from outsourcing by global clients. Expansion by
existing players, new entrants, bigger projects, mergers and acquisitions and the setting
up of R&D bases make for perfect ingredients in this growing pie.
The supply of IT professionals is likely to outgrow demand by over 50,000 in 2008 with
the total number of professionals growing to touch 12 lakhs on the projected demand of
11.20 lakhs, says NASSCOM. In 2003-04, fresh induction to the IT work force was
around 149,593, while the projections for 2005-06 had placed it at 1,60,152. The
software industry requires people with skills in programming, web development, coding
and design.

Teaching Technology
Teaching is known as one of the noblest professions. Good teachers are respected and
credited for developing quality students. This is one of the most important careers a
person can choose as it carries with it immense responsibility. Teachers are responsible
for mentoring and moulding a child into a responsible adult and citizen. Teachers have to
follow a mandated curriculum and parallely develop their own teaching methods to
make classes and lectures an interesting and inspiring experience.
Much of our individual success is based on education, training and continued learning
experiences. Hence educators are required to assist students who want to learn new
skills as well as upgrade their existing skills. The demand for good teachers is expected
to grow significantly in the future, not only at the primary school levels but also at the
higher levels.

Management
With the growing complexity of all commercial activity and the entry of multinationals, the
need for systematic and efficient management practices has created a huge demand for
competent personnel in all areas of business and commerce. Like the organized sector
of commerce and industry, the traditionally non-organized sectors like agriculture and
handicrafts are realizing the need for professional management. This has opened up
limitless opportunities in diverse spheres for students of commerce and allied subjects.
The MBA has become a degree of choice for the talented Indian student. This change
can be attributed to the Indian Government's liberalization of the economic policy and
encouragement given to the multinational companies to invest in India. There is a good
scope for MBA graduates to occupy positions of prestige and responsibility, with
attractive remuneration levels.

Fashion Technology
Fashion is ever changing - a constant process of selection, adoption and change. It is
triggered by people, events, social, economic and technological changes. No wonder,
fashion and apparel designing have become one of the fastest growing professions in
India in recent times. The world of clothes and accessories has expanded into a giant
industry, both for the domestic market and for export.
Today, the fashion industry in India is a high growth sector with a turnover in crores.
There is an ever-growing demand for designers who can come up with innovative
designs that are commercially viable in both domestic and export markets. With fashion
becoming a big business and India emerging as one of the major players
in the global apparel market, the need for qualified professionals in this field has
increased tremendously.

Page 08
With beauty pageants, fashion shows, foreign labels and a public that is increasingly
becoming fashion-conscious, a fashion designer has enough opportunities to exhibit
his/her talent. If one is enterprising, he/she can set up his/her one's own manufacturing
or export unit, which will bring attractive financial returns. Alternatively, one can seek a
lucrative job in the textile industry. A fashion designer is no longer an anonymous entity.
As long as people feel the urge to dress well, there will always be a need for more
designers to provide a variety of clothing that is appealing and trendy.

Journalism
Good journalism informs, analyses and shapes opinion. Due to the enormous influence it
exerts on the lives of people, journalism is also referred to as the 'Fourth Estate'. The
growing awareness that knowledge is power has also given an impetus to the regional
and vernacular press to expand and strengthen its scope in the past few years.
Diversification in different areas of mass communication is witnessing a steep rise and is
expected to thrive further on account of growing professionalism and advancement in
this sector. Anyone who is creative, dynamic, enterprising and has a flair to project
his/her ideas, thoughts, observations through different media of communication can
accommodate himself/herself comfortably in this industry.
Computers, especially the advent of the Internet, have brought in new and challenging
opportunities in the communication segment. It is attracting more and more people from
traditional forms of mass media. Opportunities for placement in diverse fields of mass
communication are available in publishing houses, radio and television companies,
entertainment industry, media industry, advertising agencies, public relations agencies,
government organizations and more.

Biotechnology
Biotechnology is defined as the use and manipulation of living organisms to manufacture
food, drugs or other products beneficial to mankind. The boom in biotech is mainly due
to genetic engineering in which simple life forms are manipulated to make entirely new
products. Biotechnology has a wide range of applications in science and industry.
A genetic engineer hopes to provide the society with a vast range of innovations such as
more effective and cheaper pharmaceutical products, more food products, new
approaches to the generation of energy, the recovery of resources, pollution control and
the diagnosis and correction of genetic disorders. India today boasts of some well
known companies who have forayed successfully into this sector and have made a mark
on the international map.
