Despite the demographic advantage of a young population, the country has been unable to fully harness its potential. Keeping this in mind, the university has taken the decision to establish a center named “Samarth” (which translates to ‘competent’) to enhance the skills of the youth.
The newly launched Samarth Center will organize various programs annually, including communication skills, personality development, artificial intelligence in information technology, cybersecurity, machine learning, drone technology, Vedic mathematics, and more. Vice-Chairman Dr. Anshu Surana mentioned that in order to promote entrepreneurship and provide industry-relevant skills, the university has signed a memorandum of understanding with an international ed-tech company, Talent Edge, to run the BBA, BCA, and B.Tech programs. Furthermore, discussions are underway with G.A. Future Educare Private Limited, an NSDC-approved company, for diploma programs in ethics and Vedic mathematics.
The atmosphere was filled with excitement and pride as the students’ accomplishments were celebrated and their future prospects brightened. The University of Technology, with its commitment to social service and advancement in skill-based education, continues to empower its students, fostering their personal and professional growth.
