Dr. Stya Paul believed that entrepreneurs are not only born but can also be identified, trained and created. Inspired by his belief, the campus has decided to create an Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) with the objective of generating the spirit of ‘Self Employment’ and ‘Self Reliance’ among the youth.
In view of the worldwide shortage of jobs (both government and private sectors) leading to unemployment problems & lack of proper utilisation of human resources; the EDC strives to identify talented youth for entrepreneurial works. The Cell plans to organise various programmes regarding entrepreneurship development.
It will boost and promote the culture of ‘Creating Jobs’ rather than ‘Doing Jobs’ which in fact is the need of the hour. The EDC will help to create an entrepreneurship culture by conducting Entrepreneurship Development Programmes, Entrepreneurship Awareness Camps and Entrepreneurship Motivation Camps.
Objectives of the Cell
- Creating awareness among the students and the educated unemployed youth regarding entrepreneurship as a career option.
- Conduct training programmes in the field of entrepreneurial skill development.
- Develop entrepreneurship related course curriculum to incorporate in management and engineering programmes.
- Provide guidance and facilities to first time entrepreneurs during gestation.
