Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development of a country. In rapidly growing economies like India with a vast and ever-increasing population, there is a severe shortage of highly-trained, quality skilled resources, while on the other; large sections of the population possess little or no job skills.
Education should always be purposeful, growth
oriented and productive. Along with Academic Qualifications we need to
produce dynamic and enterprising youngsters capable of facing the changing
times and taking on the toughest technical challenges. Prospective employers
along with academic Qualifications are looking at the worth and expertise of
a candidate from the view point of employability potential of the candidate.
Furthermore, the industry has neither the time nor inclination to train a
fresher in skills required. Owing to tough competition, industry is ready to
recruit only skilled candidates who can contribute immediately to the well
being of the company.
Hence the emphasis is on how best to integrate industry relevant skill set
and regular college curriculum and expose students to real workplace
culture. The need of the hour is a sustainable platform to hone the skills
of students and provide the support each individual needs to grow. A well
defined solution is the establishment of Skill Development Centers by the
Skill Development Centre will be a
consistent high standards thereby offering a wide range of academic programmes in priority
uilding up strong nexus with the industries and professionals of
repute thereby creating opportunities
for the students of
gaining advanced knowledge, on job
training and employment
We will create
technologically equipped thought and action leaders in a wide range of
spheres by providing value
based and high quality education
along with the most
indispensable professional as well as life skills.
Paramount importance will be given to training students in employability skills that cater to industry and technological needs. But, Skill Development Center also realizes the basic truth that being technically good is not adequate and therefore rigorous training will be given in communication skills, sound values and professional ethics to enable the student to venture out in confidence and prove his caliber in the competitive workplace.
