Prof (Dr) R S Rathore
Shri Vishwakarma Skill University (SVSU), the first vocational university in India has pioneered the movement to reshape vocational education with its industry-integrated dual-education programmes. It has placed Haryana as the frontrunner in transforming the skill landscape both in the State and the Country. With the industry-integrated dual-education model, SVSU is driving industry participation as a determining factor in making vocational education innovative and accessible, enabling the youth to keep pace with the changing requirements of the industry.
Skilling youth is not just a mission, but a paradigm shift in their aspirations and social status. Making Skill aspirational and meaningful is top priority for the SVSU. As more and more people become employable and earn better livelihood, University’s clarion call “सीखो और कमाओ – अपनी पहचान बनाओ” now resounds in every direction.
The University has a highly dedicated team that has worked hard with full commitment to meet the vision of Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Shri Raj Nehru to establish a skill university of distinct. These efforts to make a place for ourselves in the skill landscape of the country have been appreciated from all quarters. From two courses in first academic year to thirty in the third academic year is a testimony of our steadfastness. Skill training is like a long-term commitment. Hence, it is imperative that we continue to work with same dynamism to realize the Vision and Mission of the University in letter and spirit. It is my proud privilege to be associated with SVSU and be part of its journey to realize its mission of skilling the youth of Haryana.
