ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT CELL

          The EDC of our college provides ample opportunities to the students to develop their entrepreneurial skills and start their own enterprise and thus stand on their own legs. The students are taken to various industries and factories to gain knowledge in the functioning of factories. Outstanding entrepreneurs are invited at regular intervals to share their experiences and how they became successful.

PLACEMENT CELL

         Our job does not end with giving mere degrees alone to the students but also placing them in respectable positions.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE

          In India, 98 community colleges are recognized by the University Grants Commission. The courses offered by these colleges are diplomas, advance diplomas and certificate courses. The duration of these courses usually range from six months to two years. Community college is the most common type of two-year college. These colleges offer many types of educational programs, including those that lead to associate degrees and certificates. Certificates and some types of associate degrees focus on career readiness. Other types of associate degrees are good preparation for study at a four-year college where graduates can earn a bachelor’s degree. If you want to enter the workforce sooner, you can earn a certificate or degree in a career-oriented field, such as firefighting or engineering technology.

          Most programs are open admission. This means that you can go to college even if your high school grades aren’t strong. A community college is also a good option if you’re not sure you’re ready for college. You’ll have a chance to challenge yourself and see if college is right for you.

CONSUMER FORUM CLUB

          A person who buys any goods or services for a consideration which has been paid or promised or partly paid and partly promised or under any system of deferred payment is a Consumer. A person who obtains such goods for resale or for any commercial purposes will not be a consumer. However, if such goods are bought by a person exclusively for the purpose of earning his livelihood by means of self-employment then such a person will be considered as a consumer. The consumer forum of the college educates the students as well as the public about the rights of the consumers and how to get their grievances redressed.

ANTIRAGGING COMMITTEE

          Ragging is the most dangerous social evil prevalent in the society. Ragging in any form should be eliminated. It has ruined countless innocent lives and careers. The anti Ragging committee of the college educate the students to move friendly with each other and maintain fraternity among them. Legal and severe actions are taken against students who indulge in ragging or any other such activity.

ECO FRIENDLY CLUB

          An Environment Club is beneficial to a school and/or college for many reasons. Due to the high rate of industrial growth and thick population our environment gets polluted it is the responsibility of every one to preserve our nature without causing any damage to it. Eco friendly club is committed to protect nature creating awareness among the students and the people. It takes the message of the importance of Afforestation and hazards of deforestation. The volunteers of the club but it will never reach its full potential if only one or two members of staff and a few children are involved.

          An ECO club will help to promote, monitor and operate the environment activities of the school/college but the whole school community need to be involved in some capacity and more students and staff need to be encouraged to be involved in the programmes operated and monitored by the club. The entire school community need to fully understand the true importance and value of the club and the programmes they develop and run. All too often environment clubs in schools are seen as a token gesture allowing a school to say they have such a club and that the school cares about the environment. The true importance and benefit from having such a club is lost.

          The school environment club should be seen as the driving force behind all environmental and sustainable activities at the school. Organising, Publicizing, Promoting, Monitoring all environmental/sustainability events, activities and programmes. The students should be the driving force behind the eco club not the staff. An ECO club is very important as it establishes a focal point for all environmental/sustainability activities and programmes in the school and creating a sustainable campus in keeping with the principals of the governments ESDGC, ESD, SDE programme.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT & COUNCILING

          Your career development is a lifelong process that, whether you know it or not, actually started when you were born! There are a number of factors that influence your career development, including your interests, abilities, values, personality, background, and circumstances. Career Counseling is a process that will help you to know and understand yourself and the world of work in order to make career, educational, and life decisions.

          Career development is more than just deciding on a major and what job you want to get when you graduate. It really is a lifelong process, meaning that throughout your life you will change, situations will change, and you will continually have to make career and life decisions. The goal of Career Counseling is to not only help you make the decisions you need to make now, but to give you the knowledge and skills you need to make future career and life decisions.

REMEDIAL CLASS

          REMEDIAL CLASSES are classes that some students must take in order to build up math, reading, or English skills BEFORE they are allowed to take regular college courses. Why You Don't Want to take Remedial Classes: You can't take regular college courses until you complete the remedial classes.

          Remedial classes are often used to stress the basics in a subject such as math or language. They can help students who are having problems with advanced concepts to fully understand the basics of a subject. Students can also use them to catch up on material after a long break from education. Some people look upon remedial classes as embarrassing, but they can in fact be useful tools to gain a more complete grasp of difficult ideas or rules.

          If a student appears to be significantly behind the expected level for a class, a teacher may require him or her to take a remedial class. These classes act as a "safety valve" for struggling students, allowing them to work at a more appropriate level, rather than failing because they are not at the same level as the rest of the class. Remedial classes can be a positive environment for students suffering from low-self esteem, as they encourage students to ask as many questions as necessary to understand a subject, rather than feeling pressured to learn everything immediately.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

          An alumni association is an association of graduates or, more broadly, of former students (alumni). In the United Kingdom and the United States, alumni of universities, colleges, schools (especially independent schools), fraternities, and sororities often form groups with alumni from the same organization. These associations often organize social events, publish newsletters or magazines, and raise funds for the organization. Many provide a variety of benefits and services that help alumni maintain connections to their educational institution and fellow graduates. In the US, most associations do not require its members to be an alumnus of a university to enjoy membership and privileges.

          Additionally, such groups often support new alumni, and provide a forum to form new friendships and business relationships with people of similar background.

          Alumni associations are mainly organized around universities or departments of universities, but may also be organized among students that studied in a certain country. In the past, they were often considered to be the university's or school's old boy society (or old boys network). Today, alumni associations involve graduates of all age groups and demographics.

CONFERENCES / SEMINARS / WORKSHOPS

          Every department of the college provides all possible channels for the students to enrich their knowledge by arranging conference seminars, symposia, workshops, guest lectures at regular intervals, Interactive session, group discussion etc., help the students to get their doubts clarified. Resource Persons and eminent professors from various parts of the country are invited for these programmes.
