About Board of Studies
The Board of Studies (BoS) would have representatives from the college, university to which the college is affiliated, other universities, other colleges, partner industries and relevant Sector Skill Council(s). The Principal shall be the Chairperson.
The BoS shall decide the programmes (add on, value added and other diploma courses ) to be offered by the college depending upon the industry needs, skill gap studies done by NSDC or such other credible sources, and finalize the curriculum in modular form in consultation with the partner industry and relevant SSC.
The main objectives of BoS are:
