DSEU equips students with skills required to enter the workforce
Established in August 2020 by the Delhi government, the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) offers a range of courses that equip students with several skills, making them industry ready and an asset to India’s workforce.
The varsity has a course on retail management wherein students will have three days of practical experience with a paid stipend and three days of theory. “By the time they complete their three-year course, they will have one-and-a-half years of work experience. On Mondays, there will be review sessions inside the varsity where the industry will also be present. If we think something new has to be taught, we will add it to the course,” said its vice-chancellor, Neharika Vohra.
Another popular course - facilities in hygiene Management - is one of great significance in the current pandemic situation. “Everyone learns on the job. This course will prepare facility managers and they will be taught on how to clean a large building, soiled tile, how to recycle, how to ensure you are not using too many chemicals, how to be sustainable, how to manage manpower,” the VC explained.
The land transportation course trains students on how to plan for a journey. There are three mediums via which transportation takes place — land, water and air. Professionals are required for fuel planning, route planning. DESU teaches students the skills and techniques required to plan and perform transportation efficiently.
The DSEU has also entered into a partnership with Pune-based non-profit Lighthouse Communities Foundation to set up lighthouses near slum clusters of NCT of Delhi. The first four Lighthouses in Delhi will be set up in Kalkaji, Malkaganj, Matia Mahal and Patparganj.
“There are many children who do not have access to opportunities or have dropped out of school. The lighthouse will help people with a three to six month programme which will allow them to learn a bit of English, self-awareness and then they will be helped to choose a course of their interest. Hopefully, in the next six months, this will be rolled out at the four clusters,” said Vohra.
