DISHA will also help students of BSDU in developing and submitting research-related projects including those with the European Commission.
Dr. (Brig.) Surjit Singh Pabla, Vice Chancellor, BSDU, said, “Companies often have to train employees before they begin working, as most people working with machinery have no prior experience or training. Companies, hence, end up spending their time and money on training these individuals. At BSDU, we provide our students with internships and training in well-established companies. DISHA Foundation will help us getting more such opportunities in training students and placing them in companies, along with opportunities to train abroad.”
