The target of the workshop was also to integrate students of different disciplines, and encouraged them to work in multi-disciplinary teams to design society needed entrepreneurial projects. During different interactive and pragmatic sessions on both the days, students’ presentations were also discussed and evaluated by Mr Kalbag.

 An IIT (Bombay) alumni, Er Kalbag guided students on various issues related to entrepreneurship development with deep insight on educational narrative.   Elaborating the industrial model of education, he demanded a prominent shift from formal education to that of creation and imagination. He stressed upon his idea through display of a documentary on Vigyan Ashram Model & its basic principles-learning by doing, earn while you learn, multi skill training, and community service. With profound experience in the field of entrepreneurship, Mr Kalbag also suggested for certain possible and beneficial improvements in students’ business plans.

Different departments provide solid shape and support to the feasible projects of the students. In this regard, university not only provides mentorship, infrastructural support but also logistics solution to transform students’ imaginations into reality.”
