The Induction Program for the first batch of students of Symbiosis Skills & Open University was held on Saturday,
29th July 2017 on the University campus at Kiwale, adjoining Pune-Mumbai Expressway.
Hon’ble Shri. Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship was the Chief Guest for the function.
The Hon. Minister said that Skill Development is the need of the hour. Skill development has gained the importance in the country now. Students who are dropouts can earn their living if they are skilled. In fact, skilling should be imparted to students when they are in school. Symbiosis has set a benchmark by setting up SSOU. There should be more universities like SSOU across the country to impart skill education.
