He said that the university has setup a centre of excellence in collaboration with CISCO a US based company and it aims to provide training in latest software that are used in telecommunication industry to the students.
“Besides the students are also trained in usage of hardware that is used in telecom industry and the students who complete their training in the skill development centre will also get the CISCO certification along with their basic degree that would help them secure better jobs in the industry,” Bahra said, adding that another skill development centre is being run for the students of electronic department in collaboration with Netmax Technologies Company.
