Our education system has always aspired to empower young people to build successful & inspiring careers. In today’s world, students need to be ready for the challenges that will arise in the future and hence they should have a deep knowledge of their chosen discipline.They need to possess problem-solving skills, teamwork spirit, leadership qualities and an ability to adjust in the ever-evolving environment.
