Since then, the college has broadened its horizons, offering various skill enhancement graduate, post-graduate and Ph.D. Programmes.

The field of education has undergone a great paradigm shift in recent times, owing to the burgeoning expansion in the space of new technology, powered by scientific and industrial revolution.

In the present times, imparting skill-based education will open employment avenues for the youth and lend opportunities for the young entrepreneurs.

Academic autonomy has empowered the college to upgrade the teaching-learning process. The curricula are reinforced with relevant projects to be undertaken by the students, and an emphasis on mastering soft skills, as an inevitable part of the skill sets to be acquired by the student. The curricula are updated every two years to remain on par with the demands of the market. Projects, industrial visits, seminars, workshops, guest lectures support the overall learning of the students.
