STUDENTS COUNSELLING

During the Educational period and later, overall development of our younger generation is highly significant. The internal and external challenges of our youngsters are to be resolved in order to empower them properly to become not only a good Engineer but also a good human being. MITS is always very keen in this regard. For this, close assessment and warm interaction with each individual student is mandatory. This purpose is the heartfelt agenda of our counselling centre which is functioning under the guidance of a professional psychologist.

Once you step in to MITS in the first semester, you may feel that everything around you is different, with more responsibilities to handle both at academic and social levels.Some issues that every student may face initially are loneliness, homesickness, low confidence, anxiety, stress, sadness etc. If it is not attended in time from our level, this may affect the performance of the student both personally and academically.

To help you in solving the issues faced, keeping and sharpening your focus, you can totally be ease and informal at “Hygge House” (Counselling wing exclusively for first year students) and at the Campus Counselling Centre. We welcome you to approach us with any problem, be it academic, emotional or social, without any hesitation.
