The additional course not only gives a well rounded knowledge but makes them relevant and ready for the industry. The curriculum incorporates a few foundation modules designed to equip the students with professional skills of communication, decision making, thinking and Industry experience. Universities Curriculum rarely focuses upon skills development in students. All over the world there is a focus on skills required while performing at workplace such as language, communication and negotiation skills etc. The basic purpose of above said is to increase the employability factor of students, only traditional class room & lab trainings are not enough. University degrees are required because they are statutory & mandatory for higher education & jobs in Government and Private Sector. However to secure jobs, sustenance and to do well in global environment of today value addition is must.
