Community College

Realizing the need to boost vocational education on a larger scale, the University Grant Commission (UGC) proposes to establish as many as 100 'Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Centres' for Knowledge Acquisition and Up-gradation of Skilled Human Abilities and Livelihood (KAUSHAL)' during the XII plan period. These centres would take up the vocational education to new levels and offer courses beyond Diploma and B.Voc. degree also. The Centres will not only focus on skill development alone but also develop entrepreneurship traits. The centre may endeavour to maintain a structure of student enrolment with respect to diploma, Advanced Diploma, B.Voc, and further studies at PG levels. These Centres will also coordinate between the country's higher education system and industry to work as centres of excellence for skill development in a specialized area. Community college offers the following courses.

1.      B.Voc/M.Voc in Production Technology

2.      B.Voc/M.Voc in Polymer and Coating Technology

3.      B.Voc/M.Voc in Fashion and Garment Technology

4.      Diploma in Computerised Shoe Design and Development

Teachers of University Polytechnic, Womens' Polytechnic and Chemistry department are teaching the courses of Community College. Most have Masters degrees and some of them have doctorate degrees.
