Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University starts 10 hands-on courses under dual education model


Gurugram : The Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University (HVSU) on Monday launched 10 courses under the industry integrated dual education model, in which academics will be merged with on-job training provided by industry partners, at HSIIDC office, Udyog Vihar.

The programmes launched include a post-graduate diploma on geo-informatics in which students will closely work with the government authorities in Gurugram for a year, a Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc) degree in automotive manufacturing and automotive mechatronics in association with Hero MotoCorp, B.Voc in business process management and data analytics with Concentrix, B.Voc in tool and die manufacturing and B.Voc in robotics and automation with JBM Group, and a post-graduate diploma in public health with IQVIA, among others.
