  • Chandigarh, June 11- A seminar was organised today at Shri Vishwakarma Skill University transit campus at Gurugram for Principals of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) of the state as part of University's outreach programme among state’s youth from ITIs and schools.
  • Principals from around 100 ITIs attended the seminar. Encouraged by the idea of promoting skills for greater employability the principals consented to provide facilitation to SVSU at their ITIs for reaching out to students willing to take up skill-based diplomas and degrees at SVSU, admissions for which are currently going on.
  • The Vice Chancellor of the University, Mr Raj Nehru gave a keynote address in which he highlighted many facets of the university and its interesting journey so far. He spoke about the university's dual education and on-the-job training (OJT) model in which a student earns while he learns at the industry floor with the university's industry partners. Mr Nehru emphasised the need for imparting skill education to India's youth and explained the rationale behind education and learning that is job-oriented and demand-driven.
  • The Deputy Director of the University, Dr Sanjay Bhardwaj screened a video showing the short but magnificent journey of the university since its inception barely 3 years ago. Today the university is running 31 programmes ranging from certificate to doctoral level in fields as diverse as mechatronics, bio-informatics, food processing, Banchari art, Sharda script and robotics and animation, among many others. The university has recently opened admissions for its 2019-20 programmes.
  • SVSU, which is the first government skill university of the country, set up by the Government of Haryana has recently been at the forefront of a campaign that it has started to develop awareness among state's youth towards the value of being skilled and dignity attached with it.
