College gives individual attention to students in order to equip them to bridge the gap between traditional curriculum and changing employment needs.
A. Support Services:
i) Soft Skills:
The Department of English together with the Placement Cell, conducts classes to enhance the soft skills of our students, keeping in view the urgent demands of the corporate world. The focus is on students’ communication and presentation skills. Students are allowed to use the English Language Lab in this endeavour.
To inculcate life skills and global competencies, regular classes are conducted within college hours.
ii) Language Lab:
Listening is generally given the least priority in the teaching – learning process. This is because people believe that listening is a passive task and need not be taught, as it is acquired naturally. Contrary is the truth that listening is an arduous task and involves total attention to process what is being listened to. In fact, listening is the most crucial aspect of communication along with speaking, as it is the only way to acquire the right pronunciation.
iii) Counselling Cell
Counselling and Value Education Cell offers guidance and helps students in personal, social and vocational spheres.
