The Objective of the Placement Cell is to organize career guidance programmes for all the students, starting from the first year itself. The cell arranges training programmes like Mock Interviews and Group Discussions, for students who are interested in joining the Government Sector. It also invites HR Managers & Technical Experts from different industries to conduct training programmes for students. The Cell also provides career counselling and guidance to its students. Special focus is given to encouraging the students for entrepreneurship.
BSDU provides a platform to facilitate interaction between students and companies, so that both can find the best match as per their aspirations and requirements. Our students are a product of rigorous thinking, hard work and skill fundamentals. The University promotes a host of student activities to improve their soft skills, which are imperative for one to excel in his/ her work platform. Besides, the University promotes various activities through student clubs and cells.
We highly value our partnership with recruiters and remain committed to making the recruiting experience productive and positive. The placement team extends a warm welcome to all the recruiters to visit the University and test our budding talents. We hope that recruiters and students will create synergies and find the best match between their needs and capabilities.
Students with experience in industry:
BSDU follows the Swiss-dual model of training, wherein students spend 6 months every year doing industry internships. The Internship Program ensures that every student spends adequate time working in the industry every alternate semester. It exposes them to real life applications and provides hands-on experience in a collaborative environment.
We believe wholeheartedly in helping students develop their potential in every field of their interest. Soft skill and aptitude building are made part of the class-room experience, through presentations and open-ended learning components.
Training and Placement
In the last six months, Training and Placement Cell has been instrumental in signing 18 MoUs with the various industries and institutions to further enhance cooperation in the field of skill education, research, training, internships and placements. As on 31 Dec 2019, BSDU has signed a total of 79 MoUs. In addition, 5 additional MoUs are in the advance stages of signing. The MoUs with the industrial partners greatly help in internships and placement of students in the relevant skill areas. This is of immense help in producing graduates, who are professionally competent and industry ready immediately on graduating from BSDU.
The training and placement cell has also been laying a lot of emphasis on the aspects of soft skills to enable our students improve their communication skills, grooming, personal etiquettes, social grace and leadership qualities. These attributes would not only be useful to the students in their day today lives but would also be of immense help in climbing the corporate ladder with ease in the years to come. The soft skill programmes are conducted both by the in house and external faculties. This semester a five days intensive soft skills training programme was conducted from 13 to 18 January 2020.
This semester we have a total of 399 students who are due to proceed to the industry with effect from 03 February 2020 as part of their internships in the IInd, IVth and VIth semesters. As on 31
December 2019, approximately 90% of our students have already been placed and the balance are in the advance stages of placement. This has been made possible due to the excellent quality of training being imparted to our students and the training methodology adopted in the University. We have been receiving very good feedbacks from the industry about the performance of the students during their internships and the industry is more than pleased to engage with our students. Some of our valued industrial partners, like M/s Tweaking Technologies driven by the higher purpose of making India as the skill capital of the world, have even gone a step further by designing special training programmes for our students during their internships to significantly enhance their capabilities in the field of software Product Development. BSDU greatly appreciates and values such interventions from our industrial partners.
In this semester, we have also made a new beginning by opening the doors of foreign countries for our students for their internships. Accordingly, eight students of Entrepreneurship Skills are going to Romania and Moldova in this semester for their internships. Further, the stipend amount being received by our Bvoc students during internships has also touched a figure of Rs 24,000/- per month. In addition, it is also a matter of great pride and prestige for us that majority of our students proceeding for their VIth semester internships have assurances for permanent jobs on successful completion of their internships. It would only be appropriate to say that these developments are clear indication of this young University’s rising Brand value.
We have been successful in maintaining our high Internship &Placement statistics. Our ingenious alumni have set new standards in the corporate world through their estimable contributions and it is our firm conviction that we will continue that legacy in the years to come
