Centurion University focuses on developing the high potential of the students with various kinds of training as early as possible. The Placement Training starts from the first year till the final year for B. Tech., MBA and other courses by a team of Promoters/ Entrepreneurs, Resource Persons, Placement Trainers and Faculty members. We ensure that our training and development programs are effective and strategically aligned.
The Training Cell at CUTM conducts the following classes in a phased manner:
- Life Skills Development classes: As a part of Life Skills Development Laboratory, the students are trained in various fields of personality development and communication skills. The students are given training in a spell of six semesters right from the 1st year on-wards. The skills required to analyze problems related to aptitude test and logical analysis are important to the students in this course. They are also made to address a group of individuals and interact with them in the form of group discussions. The topics for these group discussions include both technical and non-technical matters.
- Special Electives:
a) A pool of professional electives is made available by each department facilitating the students to opt for the courses of their choice. These electives are designed to impart advanced knowledge in various specializations in any branch of engineering targeting employability, higher education and entrepreneurship. These electives enable the students to obtain proficiency in a particular stream in their branch of engineering / technology in addition to the strong foundation through the core subjects which are mandatory.
b) A further step taken by the university is introduction of project based / skill based electives. The objective of this is to impart pre-placement training and proficiency in project handling and skills required in their future careers.
c) On grounds similar to professional electives, a basket of courses with management background are made available for the students to select from that are relevant to their discipline thus molding a professional student equipped with managerial capabilities.
d) In programmes other than engineering, a similar procedure of academic flexibility is implemented through extending the facility of choosing subjects from a pool of free / professional electives. In undergraduate / post graduate programmes in basic & applied sciences, the students are offered certain courses with computational backgrounds (Courses from Computer Science discipline).
