The Socio-economic & culture progress of any country depends upon its education system. Education does not simply mean acquiring knowledge & information but it also requires its right use within the frame work of ethics & values. Values are closely related with aims of education. Values are ideas, beliefs & norms that a society holds.
Mere academic knowledge without deep rooting in human values will only give rise to personalities who may become rich in material possessions but will remain poor in self understanding, peace &social concern.
"Excess of knowledge & power without values, make human being devils" --- Swami Vivekananda.
Value education teaches us that how we do things is more important to our well being than what we do. In fact, it is time we learned that even skills, by themselves cannot produce a healthy society. Co-operation, positive thinking, kindness & other eternal values are essential to a truly productive life & for the attainment of the universal goal of all life i.e. 'Happiness'
In a sense Value education deals with what is universally valuable to all of us, what is conducive to our collective happiness & prosperity in a sustainable manner.
The subject Value Education is a three credit course in B.Tech, MBA and MCA which is taught by this cell.
The long history of mankind has seen a lot of progress .Though science & technology has led to continuous progress of mankind but we are still facing various problems at all the levels. The individuals are still confused with respect in lack of clarity on life goals, contradictions & stress.
This subject deals with value education means it tells us ‘What is of value or what is valuable to a human-being’. Value thus provides the basis for all our actions and there is an essential relationship between values and skills, which needs to be ensured in any education system.
