The university also has plans to open a Skill Development Centre to offer certificate courses in different trades that will help the youth of the region become skilled and employable. The Vice-Chancellor also said that the university is actively working for the placement of the students through the placement and training cell and has conducted many placement drives to make sure that as many students as possible get placed as soon as they graduate from the university.
