The final year students of Don Bosco College of Engineering had the opportunity of being part in a one day Career Guidance Program held in the college premises on September 21, 2017. The guests for this occasion were members of the ‘Board of Apprenticeship Training (BOAT) - Western Region’ who were enthusiastic to create awareness amongst the students about ‘The Apprentice Act of 1961‘.

Prof. Jeffery Valadares compered the formal event which started off with the lighting of the lamp, after which the guests were all welcomed with a bouquet of flowers. Rev. Fr. Kinley D’Cruz then addressed the gathering with a story which asked students to not be like ‘Half-baked engineers’ and encouraged them towards Internships and Apprenticeship after listing the plus points involved with it.

Dr. Neena Panandikar took the opportunity of welcoming the guests and thanking them for their decision to spend time with the students of the college. She also appreciated the faculty coordinators who helped manage and make the event work out in a short period of notice. Shri P N Jumle spoke to the students of the upcoming difficulties that lie ahead after they graduate. He cautioned that just earning an engineering degree isn’t the same as what it was many years back and urged students to take up apprenticeship to be more job efficient.

Soon after the formal event, began the interactive session which brought forth four different speakers to give a talk on different topics ranging from Apprenticeship, Entrepreneurship as a career option, Higher Education and Business Etiquettes. In general the programme helped the students to have a better understanding of the opportunities that could be offered by Apprenticeship, Entrepreneurship and Higher Education.
