Vice-chancellor Father Felix Raj said the respondents gave their opinion on four areas: relevant to industry requirements; in demand with the students of the city and state; innovative with regard to curriculum design and pedagogy and relevant to current educational trends.
After analysing the data, the university has decided to start a faculty of science with courses in statistics and computer science, he said.
The university will also start a UG and PG course of philosophy as planned earlier, Fr. Vice- Chancellor said.
So far the university ran courses in commerce, management, law, mass communication and humanities.
The course that was high on demand among the respondents was statistics...," he said.
"Courses such as sociology, BEd, Comparative Religion and foreign languages were also suggested," added Vice/ Chancellor.
"Among the respondents 60 per cent were students, 13 per cent were industry professionals. The respondents included 16 per cent academicians and 10 per cent parents," said an official official.
The university was inaugurated in 2017 and within four years, it had 3,300 students on its rolls.
India today has listed SXUK as one of the emerging universities in India with potential for high ranking.
