Centurion Turns Skill University

With the Odisha Government has accorded recognition to the Centurion University of Technology and Management (CUTM) as Skill University, this place of Higher Learning has added another plume to its fledging cap.

Government of Odisha in the Department of Skill Development and Technical Education has accorded the recognition of Skill University to CUTM after rigorous process of scrutiny.

The High Powered Committee consisting of Inter Departmental Officials has the intense scrutiny, which CUTM cleared as it has the credibility and knowledge.

Sanjay Kumar Singh, Secretary Skill Development and Technical Education has brought out the Gazette Notification in this regard after the Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik cleared the proposal, while accepting the recommendations of the Committee.

In fact Mr.Singh is taking lot of initiatives in the Skill Development Sector, which holds huge scope for youth in the State.

So CUTM has turned out to be the First University of Skill in India and the Skill Czar, Mukti Kanta Mishra is in Cloud Nine.

Prof.Mishra is not only active in skilling development in Odisha but is having presence in several states and being lauded by the other State Governments, including, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, said sources.

He believes in building human competency needs that Skill Development is needed to be tagged with mainstream so that this sector will receive more attention that is needed.

“Unless skilling is made a part of mainstream education, it is not going to work. If you are a graduate in economics, the degree should be commensurate with appropriate, relevant and meaningful competency. You should understand more of practical and less theory, with focus on action”, said Prof.Mishra.

For last 11 long years, Prof.Mishra is into Skill Development and through CUTM and Gram Tarang Initiative has been able to provide Skill Training to over 1.15 Lakh Youth.

And 70 Percent of them have received jobs across the country, admits a senior placement faculty of CUTM.

Recently,  the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N Chandrababu Naidu, while appreciated the efforts of CUTM and allowed to set up its new University at Vishakhapatnam.

With the new tag of Skill University, CUTNM will go places, feel experts min the field of Higher Education.
