Universal Development of Integrated employability Skills through Higher education Agencies
Youth, that exciting decade between the ages of 16 and 26, is filled with dreams for a better life through education, job opportunities and relationships. It is the transition from being seen as young by community elders to being acknowledged as an adult. It is  a time filled with personal and professional challenges requiring skills that are sharpened each day through a desire to succeed.

Why do we need UDISHA?


To increase the employability rate of the graduates in Gujarat, Udisha is to bridge the gap between job seekers and the job providers. On one hand, there is a dearth of good employees in various job sectors- hospitality, banking, teaching etc. And on the other the need of the employers are increasing in various sectors of industry. Udisha is expected to bridge this gap and increase the  rate of employability in the near future.

What is UDISHA all about?

Lectures of experts are arranged. Useful books are made available to students in the library. UDISHA club also has tried to organize placement camps with the help of some Private companies. The Placement Cell and UDISHA team helps the students by providing them with professional counselling, mentoring and academic advice. A great number of students get this benefit.

As ours is an Arts college and situated in Tribal and rural area, there is hardly any scope for industrial interaction. However, sometimes companies willing to recruit for call centers contact us and recruit our students. Our Placement Cell- UDISHA looks after the activities like, Vodafone workshop and Film Making Multimedia, MACC (Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematic) to provide placement to students.
