BANGALORE: MVJ College of engineering as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative recently organized a crash CET coaching classes for the pre-university students from socially and economically backward areas. The classes were held from January 21 to 24 at the MVJ College campus and more than 25 students from the villages in and around the college campus participated in this programme.
The Department of Mathematics of MVJ College of Engineering organised a four-day CET coaching session which included a two-hour session on each subject — Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. At the end of the course, Varun Melanta, director of MVJCE and Dr K S Badarinarayan, principal of MVJCE distributed the participation certificates to the students.
Speaking about the initiative Dr K S Badrinarayan, shared, “This is the first in the series of courses. We will be organising for these students. We will be organising 10 days of CET coaching classes before the CET test and this will be open to all students appearing in this year’s CET to be held in May.” A two-day programme on English speaking, personality development and communication skills was also held at the MVJ campus.
“The objective of providing these classes to students was to make them self confident, improve their communication skills and make them industry ready, so that these students after completing their studies can take up jobs in the KPO and BPO industy,” shared Varun Melanta.
Speaking about the process of selecting students, Dr Badrinarayan K S said, “The participating students live in near by villages and are in PU colleges run by the government. We sent out letters to these colleges and interested students registered with us for the classes. We have limited the number of students to around 25 so as to give proper attention to each and every student.”
