The Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), WB is trying to reach out the young students from the very finishing point of their school level to guide them about their future career prospects through its School Connect Programme. At this point, these students are confused about the right path to success and they are also too young to take all decisions on their own.
The aim of the School Connect Programme is to bridge the information gap that comes in the way of their choice of appropriate profession in future. The University has spread its wings in varied areas and has gone on to introduce new and vibrant in-house courses and also different programmes under its affiliated colleges, which are being publicized among the students at the 11-12 level. The focus is to promote these programmes among the school students, so that our future generation have a thorough knowledge of various programmes and courses offered at MAKAUT, before they step into the job market.
As a part of the School Connect Programme, awareness camps were organized recently in Siliguri and Tamluk.
