Abstract


Rapid technological advancement coupled with ever increasing interconnectedness has been opening the global opportunities for people possessing skills. Amidst rising global population and declining resources, the role of education has become vital, not only meet our present needs but also to find solutions for dynamic societal challenges. Often newer challenges require varied solutions that come from critical thinking younger generation graduates. Tomorrow’s quality of professionals come from today’s excellence in education that nurture knowledge and wisdom.

Present scenario of education presents a bleak future as most of our educational policies and systems are designed to produce mediocre professionals. Therefore, it is need of the hour to reengineer and transform our educational system. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to highlight the necessity of paradigm shift in our educational policies. The paper discusses the present scenario of education and future requirements, prerequisites for quality of education and research, infrastructural facilities, pedagogical tools, and limitations of the study.
