Bahra University is planning to introduce courses on sericulture and floriculture. Revising the academic structure to make it more employable for students, the university has introduced a concept, design, implement and operate (CDIO) formula to produce entrepreneurs.
“We introduced the CDIO in the third semester to enable students to become job givers. The students starting their own projects are given two-year extension for job placement which implies that they could sit for placement interviews even after two years of passing out,” said Vice-Chancellor Nagender Prashar.
Addressing the media persons here today, he said, “We are competing in a multidisciplinary era and people with creative and innovative ideas beyond conventional knowledge are needed. Our vision is to ensure one-year internship in the industry so that the students get observed easily.”
“There are about 1,500 students in the university. Besides hard skills, we are also focusing on soft skills like teamwork, a positive attitude, etc. English has been introduced as a course in the first year to improve communication skills,” he said.
