“New World, New Thinking, New Challenges, New Abilities”

As a consequence of the pandemic, we had to rise beyond the limitations of physical presences in the classes making virtual interactions closer than reality. While the faculties had to strive to satisfy students learning process, the overall experience was found to be quite good both by the students and faculties. We look forward to pursue this pedagogy more gainfully if the pandemic situation disrupts the face – to – face classroom teaching process.

  • Opening new avenues to technologies through online seminars & workshops
  • Engaging and Encouraging students academically through online teaching
  • Adopting new pedagogical approaches to meet present-day requirements
