University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES) Dehradun has announced two new placement policies- on campus and off campus to encourage students towards entrepreneurship.
According to UPES Dehradun, under this policy the institute will provide placement support to those who even after two years of graduating choose to find a job due to some reason. UPES is also opening up experience zones by end of March 2017 at three locations in Delhi/NCR to help students take informed decisions when it comes to choosing right educational courses. UPES counsellors will guide them and clear their doubts in these centres. The University is slated to open UPES experience zones in Tier 2, Tier 3 cities to assist students who have limited access to information and need right counselling.
Speaking on the new placement initiative, Utpal Ghosh, President and CEO, UPES, said, “With the new placement policy in place, we urge our students to follow their entrepreneurial dreams by giving them a choice to return to their alma mater for placement support. UPES already has an incubation centre at campus that provides end-to-end assistance and guidance to students who want to do something of their own. We encourage entrepreneurship and innovation in our students as it is not just about running a successful business; entrepreneurial skills are required if you are in a job or even in day-to-day life.”
Mega initiatives like Digital India, Skill India, Smart Cities and Make in India has opened up avenues in fields like Geo Informatics, renewable energy, broadband communication, urban & infrastructure development, machine design, fire & safety, disaster management, IPR and Cyber laws, both in public and private sector.
UPES offers specialised programs for students which are designed keeping in mind the sector-specific present and future requirements of the industry.
