Each School / Department has been actively undertaking extension activities to (i) suit their P. G. curricula, (ii) identify real life problems for M.Sc. dissertations and Ph.D. themes and (iii) inculcate industrial culture among the students through industrial visits/training, so that their unknown fears and inhibitions for industrial jobs are desirably wiped out or at least minimized.
