Developing Country
A developing country, also known as a less-developed
country (LDC),is a nation with a low living standard,
undeveloped industrial base, and Low Human Development
Index(HDI) relative to other countries
Development entails a modern infrastructure (both physical and
Qualities of a developing country
Increasing phase in GDP per capita
Ability of self-production
Good economic stability
Factors affecting developing countries
Rapid growth in population
Increase in poverty
Lack of industries which leads to increase in
foreign investment
Higher education in developing countries
The wealth or poverty of nations depends greatly on
the quality of higher education.
More balanced approach to education at all levels is
It cannot guarantee rapid economic development, but
sustained progress is impossible without it.
Role of students
Should be dedicated and have enthusiasm to get
Should make use of resources available.
Should have a clear understanding of their purpose
of attaining higher education.
Confidence in choice of courses
Should be more interactive in class to get more
Students as Active Partners in HEIs
Higher Education
Higher Education Institutions
Student as
Active Partner
Part (1) of the figure describes the pre-enrolment phase when
both the student and the HEI exchange information and use
screening and signalling mechanisms.
Part (2) shows the constellation between student and his HEI in the
Active Partner paradigm after the student’s enrolment, i.e. during and
after studying. The student has become part of his or her university,
and has at the same time re-shaped it
Role of faculties
Should be self-disciplined and well dignified
Guide the students in a right way to reach their destiny
Should know their subject deeply and periodical
knowledge updating is necessary
Should handle a friendly approach to the students, to
make them more interactive in the class
Role of institutions and industries
Institutions should focus on industry-based research
Institutions should utilize the available time by
conducting training programs, workshops, seminars,
Industries can concentrate on educational institutions
and offer the students industrial research and
development projects, during their final year.
Vital roles to be played by the Institutions
Providing generic science and engineering graduates
Relevant education in emerging technical fields
Relevant advanced research training (masters and PhDs)
Lack of things, to be noted by the Institutions
Attract and retain high quality faculty
Selecting/screening high calibre individuals
Knowledge creation: relevant fundamental research
To experiment this type of educational system, both
educational institutions and industries should function in
combination. And students’ co-operation is also necessarily
important. Altogether, the final result is improvement in
quality of technical education, which helps the students to
get employed in large numbers. More employment leads to
industrial expansion, and industrial expansion leads to self
development with high economical stability.
Improvement in Quality of Technical Education promotes
income growth and leads to increase in GDP per capita.
It contributes to labour productivity, entrepreneurial energy,
and quality of life.
When scientists in developing countries are inspired to define
and address local problems, they are likely to contribute to
appropriate solutions in vital areas.
An accessible higher education system offering a wide range of
quality options for study is a major achievement, in today’s
developing countries.
