“EDGE - “Enhanced Development Growth and Enrichment”.

EDGE ensures overall holistic development of our students and provides them an extra EDGE when over others in terms of enhancing their skills for life.

EDGE not only concentrates on the first job from the campus but also supports our students in obtaining right set of skills to prepare them for higher education and various gateways to PSU’s and government organizations which helps them to excel in all areas of their professional life.

EDGE operates under different modules for different schools but with a common approach across University. Through EDGE, students undergo various trainings on aptitude, communication, group discussion, mock interviews, and role-plays.

The schools and departments touch upon domain, technical and cross-domain understanding. Some of these are inbuilt in the course curriculum whereas some of these interventions are through workshops, seminars, video lectures, expert talks, and alumni interaction.

EDGE not only concentrate on enhancing employability skills but also offers preparation platform for higher studies by providing on-campus coaching for various competitive exams such as CAT, MAT, GATE, GRE, GMAT, TOFEL/ ILETS/ Judiciary, etc. through leaders in the market.

We have engaged market leaders like Career Launcher and T.I.M.E who are providing on-campus training sessions to the students of 3rd year B Tech for School of Engineering and School of Computer Science.

We also have on-campus coaching facility for competitive exams for which we have a tie-up with T.I.M.E. Coaching institute.

We also administer employability assessment by globally acclaimed employability assessment agency AON CoCubes. The same model with different partners is implemented for other schools as well.

In nutshell EDGE enhances employability skills of our students, prepares them for better placements through bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge of their domains and its real-time application, providing on-campus facility for preparation of competitive exams and above all making them future-ready to face challenges of their professional life.
