“Coronavirus Pandemic has changed the education landscape of not only in our country but also globally. As the economy is badly affected because of the pandemic, many organizations have either put on hold or postponed their recruitment process, and this move has put the future of many final year students in jeopardy. So, to bring hope and strengthen the skills of such students, JKLU has decided to launch few short-term courses in Engineering, Design, and MBA. One can pursue these certification courses to gain extra knowledge and can also resume his/her master’s degree from the advanced level, after the successful completion of 3-6 months of certification. Moreover, the additional skills in the respective domain will help him/her to reach the advanced level of the course and can be fruitful for him in getting jobs,” said Dr. RL Raina- Vice-Chancellor, JK Lakshmipat University, Jaipur.
