Career Development Programme
At the Career Development Centre, we guide students to explore how their aspirations and interests are related to various business practices. In the first semester, students undergo several self-assessments to identify their personality and career preferences. We then provide them with detailed information about various industries and career options. By the end of the first semester, students narrow down their choices and build a career-profile chart for themselves. This enables students to make informed decisions when choosing their electives. The Career Development Centre also provides expertise in crafting powerful resumes, developing interviewing and presentation techniques and building critical interpersonal skills.
Apart from other tools of learning, one way of learning technology is by action and participation in research. Each student is required to undergo a four-week summer training at leading corporations by undertaking a project of direct relevance to the concerned organization. Subsequently, a presentation on the project and a viva-voce before a panel of experts is held. In the months of May and June, students go through a Summer Training Programme with an organization to get hands-on experience of current market scenario. Leading corporate like NALCO, Prasar Bharati, IMFA, SAIL, NTPCL, BHEL, OPTCL, AIRPORT AUTHORITY, RELIANCE etc are our major visitors. In the fourth semester, students get a chance to put their learning into practice.
