When new students enter an Institution, they come with diverse thoughts, backgrounds, and preparations. It is important to help them to adjust to the new environment and inculcate in them the ethos of the Institution with a sense of larger purpose. A 14 days long induction program for first-year engineering students entering the Institution, right at the start has been introduced in 2021-22. Regular classes start only after the induction program. Its purpose is to make the students feel comfortable in their new environment, open them up, set a healthy daily routine, create a bonding in the batch as well as between faculties and students, develop awareness, sensitivity, and understanding of the self, people around them, society at large, and nature. The Induction Program is also helping to overcome the deficiency in communication skills.
