Career Development Centre (CDC)

In recent years the gap between industry and academia is increasing due to changing requirements of the industry. For a student to be more effective and valuable, the need of soft skills like time management, anger & stress management, communications, self-confidence, and many areas in personal development is inevitable. These skills also play very important role in their studies and later in their career. Along these skills, they need proper direction, mindset, and attitude to be employable.

After completing their studies, students acquire these pieces of learning from experience or some rare opportunities of trainings in countless years and that too after spending a lot of money.
