JODHPUR : Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur has joined hands with KRI Trust to launch a “Career Guidance and Career Assessment programme” at the campus for the budding engineers on 29th June 2023. As the Institute believes, if a student is given the right direction, passion leads to excellence. Believing in this virtue of success, IIT Jodhpur in collaboration with KRI Trust will embed individualised career guidance modules for all students including B.Tech’s as part of their curriculum. Objective of this initiative is to enable students to identify their core strength, inclination and aspirations and to help them to evolve into capable professionals for the future. It will touch upon Career guidance, Career Assessment, Career Opportunity, Career Competency Building. and Developing Entrepreneurial Aptitude to name a few.
Speaking on this occasion, Prof. Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT Jodhpur said, “Learning is not attained by chance but it must be sought for with passion and diligence. We at IIT Jodhpur believe that a student must be empowered to identify his/her strengths, follow his or her own aspirations, to be distinguished and capable of handling disruptive changes in the profession. This programme in collaboration with KRI, an initiative of IIT alumni, will enhance the innate abilities of students to follow their dreams thereby motivating them to excel in their career beyond the confines of IIT.”
The MoU between IIT Jodhpur and KRI Trust was signed by Prof. Santanu Chaudhury, Director IIT Jodhpur and Veteran Cdr Pradeep Prasad, Trustee KRI Trust in the presence of Prof. Surajit Ghosh, Dean (IR, AR, CR), Dr Gaurav Bhatnagar Associate Dean (IRO) and Dr Anuj Pal Kapoor Chairman Career Development Cell.
This is a first of its kind initiative to address the drop out issues among the students and to channelise their aspirations and dreams in the right direction. The Career Development Center at IIT Jodhpur will look after the initiation of the sessions. The upcoming batch of 2023 will be the first beneficiaries of this unique program and the sessions will help the students to open up opportunities for them in line with their interests and passion thereby creating a safe, vibrant and conducive atmosphere for the overall growth of the students.
