Thiruvananthapuram: Foraying into healthcare education, mini-ratna public sector undertaking and leading condom manufacturer HLL Lifecare Ltd has tied up with the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) to commence two courses in clinical engineering and management, a statement said Saturday.

The courses will begin from January 2012.

The programmes, having two semesters of six months each, will be held in distance education mode with contact classes. The curriculum has been designed to fulfil the requirements of healthcare institutions, procurement service agencies and equipment manufacturers.

"This is for the first time, such programmes are launched in the country. Our aim is to impart quality education in inter-disciplinary fields of health sciences and technology. Initially, HLL Academy will function as part of the corporate establishment. We plan to create a separate not-for-profit educational institution," said HLL CMD M. Ayyappan.

The other programmes in the pipeline by the academy are in the areas of social marketing and good manufacturing practices. It also plans to launch M.Tech and MBA programmes.
