As Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University is ready to virtually open its doors to students, its Vice Chancellor Neharika Vohra said that the goal of the university is not only to provide instruction on a subject, but also to make the students highly qualified.
Established in 2020 by the Delhi government, the university has the establishment of virtual laboratories so that students do not miss any internship during the pandemic.
Experts from the IITs and IIITs are members of the university’s curriculum advisory groups and provide their input in the design of study programs, Vohra told the PTI in an interview.
“We worked with the industry to first find out which job roles they couldn’t find talent for. For example, if a BA or B.Com graduate joins a bank, he will be sent to training for a year and a half. But we have a course that will help the students get to the level of a BA and all knowledge of the financial industry like insurance, ”she said.
In preparing the curriculum design, she said there is a curriculum advisory group that includes academics from the field and faculty members from the university. The university’s faculty members spent more than 1,000 hours designing the curriculum while the academic experts saved nearly 1,800 hours, meaning a total of 3,000 hours were spent making the curriculum “current” and “industry-ready” ” .
All of this is to ensure that students get a good degree, she said.
In addition to the courses, students are taught employability skills such as English, etiquette, critical thinking, etc.
“Each committee has four to five months to do this. We started in February and when classes start we will be finished with the curriculum, ”she said.
The VC said the spots will be filled as soon as the grades 10 and 12 results are announced.
“Currently, students are visiting us to find out more about the university and some of them are also filling out registration forms. We see 30,000 visitors to our website every day. At least 5,000 registration forms have been filled out while 16,000 students have started but not completed the registration process, ”she added. “My vision for the university is that this is a place where people come and learn deep skills in the area they choose. You will do well in this area. They will learn to be good enough to excel in their job or entrepreneurship. The idea is not just to learn a subject, but also to learn skills. Our classes will be 60 percent practice and 40 percent theory, ”she added.
