Employability Enhancement Programme
Keeping in view the current employability scenario of Engineering and Management students, we at SMS Lucknow have endeavoured to develop a course curriculum under the name of Employability Enhancement Program (EEP). Through this initiative we wish to improve the employability of our students by focusing on reducing the important skill gaps by incorporating improvements in curriculum and teaching methods. A full-fledged course curriculum for EEP has been designed focusing on the Industry requirements.
It includes two significant aspects i.e. A. Aptitude & Reasoning B. communication Skills.
A. Aptitude & Reasoning:
- EEP has designed classes to better the aptitude ability of our students. As we are familiar with the fact that aptitude involves our ability to learn or excel in a specific area. Let’s say if someone has a strong aptitude for logic and math, they may excel in careers involving statistics and probability. Some people are naturally inclined to aptitude whereas some want to get a motivation to make skills better. So, our team of experts provides information on aptitude and helps the learners utilize their talents and skills to excel professionally. The easy techniques and methods can usher them grow along with time and practice. This module has two papers i.e. A. Logical Reasoning & B. Quantitative Aptitude.
- B: Communication Skills:
Communication is a skill that you can learn. It's like riding a bicycle or typing. If you're willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.
Communication and Negotiation skills play a vital role in our personal and professional lives. Hence, we have a special focus on the skill development of our students in professional and non-professional courses. The Employability Enhancement Program gives the learners an edge over their competitors. This soft skills course is designed for the students of B Tech, MBA, Diploma and UG Courses.
To enhance the level of spoken English of our students, we teach the practical implementation of English Grammar. The content taught in all the professional & non-professional courses is designed to develop students’ Listening Skills, Speaking Skills, Reading and Writing skills by having them participate in various activities on each. To do so, we have a team of experts who help the learners to understand the nitty-gritty of English as a language.
We’ve various activities based on the following topics to hone the communication skills of our students:
Verbal & Non-verbal Communication
- Day to day interaction
- Presentation Skills
- Body Language
- Written communication
- Attitude & Empathy
- Technical Writing
We have also collaborated with organizations like IBM and other specialized training providers to impart training to our students on latest technologies like Cloud computing, .NET, Solid Works, CNC machine Training etc. The overall focus of EEP is on the holistic development of a student’s personality to make him/her suitable for industrial/corporate roles. To attain this objective the dedicated faculty and staff of SMS Lucknow have left no stone unturned.
