|Engineering Science Fundamentals||Academia :
Reinforcement of fundamentals taught.
Role of a faculty in developing fundamental science skills (Create a challenging but non-threatening learning environment).
|Ability to identify, formulate and solve
Provide real world examples at college/Reinforced by industry through internships/Skillathons/Contests
Exposure to systems engineering at early stages of the course.
Importance of science concepts in different engineering disciplines.
Academia could craft curriculum schedules that sync and help to reinforce concepts.
Industry to convert systems integration knowledge into a systems integration skill set.
|Curiosity and persistent desire for continuous learning||Academia:
Curriculum to have more authentic engineering experiences that stimulate creativity and curiosity. Case studies, projects, guest lectures, demonstrations, and applications that fosters creativity in engineering. Students to recognize the importance of professional associations(e.g. ASME, IEEE, ICE)
|Coding & Programming Skills/Core competencies/Product Based Hiring||Academia/Industry:
Basic IT skills and coding as a foundation course incorporating modules and add-on.
Teaching core IT skills as long as they are mindful of current trends and needs of industry.
|Critical Thinking/Problem solving skills||Academia:
Culmination of multiple KSAs.
External intervention to start and later to develop a self-sustained model.

Industry to build teamwork skills may include participation in projects, internships, national sponsored competitions, and volunteering in student branches of professional societies.
The CGPU have a much broader framework in activities related with training and placements than just limiting it to the normal mode of providing job opportunities alone. The unit will handhold the students with a holistic perspective on career and life. CGPU will handhold the education objectives of respective departments with a clear route map. The following potential options are predefined and students will be guided with much better insights on the same.
1. Higher Studies (Universities in India & Abroad)
2. Industry/Job Placements/Internships
3. Research & Development
4. Entrepreneurship/Innovation culture
5. Competitive Examinations (GATE, CAT, UPSC, GRE, GMAT, IELTS etc.)
As per the policy formulated, the CGPU will strive to provide the following three job options for the students:
1. First job in software companies (IT/ITES/Product domain/Start-ups)
2. Second job in Core Companies
3. Third is a Dream Job
As per the industry scenario, three jobs are offered to every student depending on the companies that visit the campus or off-campus mode. If the first job offer is in software domain, the candidate has the option to appear for core domain and third job is defined as a dream job which is open to all the students. As per the norms, students once placed in any core company is not allowed to appear for another core company. For the dream job option, students already placed in software as well as in core companies, are allowed to appear.
