Baddi University launches Academic adoption programme
The Baddi University of Emerging Science and Technology (BUSET), Himachal Pradesh, will be offering Academic Adoption programme from this academic session in a bid to produce students who will meet the manpower need in an industry. Academic adoption programme is the first of its kind in India that aims to provide practical industrial exposure to the students while studying.
Students under the said programme will be adopted by one particular industry that will train the students from the start of the course. They will work in the industries during the weekdays and the academic exposure will be provided in the university on weekends. The attracting feature of the programme is that, working students will also be receiving a stipend ranging between Rs 6, 000 to Rs 20, 000 depending on the adopting company’s pay scale.
At present the companies that have already agreed to adopt the students are India Mart, Virtuos Solutions, Clicklabs, HimTeknoforge, Aurthor Gen Technologies Ltd, Trade India and North Star Fasteners. The university is also targeting companies like TVS and Electrolux and claims to have received confirmation from more than 150 industries.
Taaleem Academy Private Limited (TAPL) and Baddi Barotiwala – Nalagarh Industries Association (BBNIA) have entered the tripartite agreement to facilitate the programme and overcome the problem of skilled human resources to some extent. The programme basically aims at changing the mindset of people regarding skill-based blue collar occupations. The programme will also be imparting soft skills training to its candidates during the course to produce employment worthy candidates.
According to the industrialist, this will not only help in bridging the skill gap requirement, but also ease the shortage of workforce problem in the area. At present, the university has around 3000 students and offers courses like B Tech, M Tech, MBA, BCA, MCA, B Pharm, M Pharm etc.
