students with best of skill development initiatives. We are proud to announce
these new courses. I hope this will help students to get job ready from

providing 100% placement assistance to all the students who enrolled in B.Voc.

Under the three new courses, students will spend three
semesters at the university, where they will learn theoretic aspects of their
respective fields as well learn how to work with machines and equipment.
Whereas, the other three semesters will be spent in industry where students
will get practical training.
Along with the new courses, BSDU also announced the
increase in its fees structure. Earlier, the fees ranged from Rs 50,000 to Rs
60,000, whereas now the fees for BSDU’s B.Voc. and M.Voc. courses range from
60,000 to around Rs 1,00,000. The reason behind the raise is the increasing
number of students year-by-year, and the need of more resources and facilities
from the university’s end. Apart from this, BSDU proposed changes in some of
its courses’ curriculum and some additions in training methods.
