Current Course Offerings

Spring/Summer

For Advanced Class - Jump to Advanced Distance Learning Fall - Winter Schedule

Under the auspices of The American University of Mayonic Science and Technology (www.aumscience.com ) and in association with the Vaastu Vedic Research Foundation and the International Institute of Mayonic Science and Technology, Chennai, India a course series in Mayonic Science & Technology, Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology is being offered during the Fall and Winter of 2011-12.  Instructors will be  Dr. Jessie J. Mercay and special guest instructors.

AUM S&T Courses are administered in three ways:

1. Cornerstone Series Resident Scholars: These courses are the foundation courses for the study of Mayonic Science and Technology, Vastu Science, Vaastu Science and Technology, and Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda.  They are taken in residence at an AUM S&T Learning Site or Mayapeetam* throughout the Americas. 

2. Distance Learning Series:The student enrolls in teleconference courses and/or independent studies courses.  Most of the study is done independently with 1-2 hour group teleconferences per week.   Unless otherwise stated, this is for advanced students only who have taken the Cornerstone Series.

3. Collective Distance Learning: Students gather at a location and travel together for a specific course of study that requires visiting various Vaastu sites in the America’s or in a foreign country such as India.  Typically, new students and non-students may enroll.

When reading the course schedule, look under each of these three separate sections to find the course you want to take from the curriculum.
