Dr. Kalra views on the current education sector
The theoretical knowledge along with the technological revolution has become a necessary element nowadays. In order to overcome this, we provide additional skill courses like Python, SAP, to name a few. for students to make them industry ready. With this, we are planning to introduce more industry-oriented courses in our curriculum.
Mantra to create a positive academic culture
Our motive is to provide a comfortable and intellectually challenging environment for the students. This will empower students to become innovative thinkers and creative problem solvers. Also, we make sure that the attendance of all students must be 75% and all of the lectures are delivered accordingly.
Methods opted to encourage students to pursue research courses
We encourage students to pursue research courses with the assistance of the experts. One of our faculty members submitted a DST Project of 30 lakh and some are quite motivated and they will also make a project of 17 lakh. In that case, we will not engage them for extra activities or extra duties. Their entire focus is on academics and research work.
Message to the students
We aspire to bring excellence in every facet of the pupil. I wish them to become not only good students but competent and brilliant human beings as well. May they all have a smooth take off in the flight of life.
