The courses lead to gainful employment in fast growing and emerging industries. In the first year, CADD Centre is targeting to place 5,000 engineering students.
To popularise this, CADD Centre has commenced a First Job Pakka campaign across all important channels in Regular a social media. The TV commercial caddcentre.com/firstjobpakka encourages students to train in advanced courses in product design & development, analysis, civil & architecture, and Information Technology domains and be ready for upcoming industry jobs. The First Job Pakka Campaign has a series of 4 light hearted commercials, each to be released sequentially over 4 months. A dozen more promotional videos calling students to ‘walk-in’ and get their first jobs, after about 80 hours of training in select, job-oriented courses are also ready for release.
Considering the rapid induction of AI, IoT and Big Data in all engineering realms, CADD Centre’s courses, launched under the First Job Pakka initiative, will feature training in programming and algorithm development, in addition to the CAD/CAE, and Project Management skills in all engineering streams. To enhance employability, CADD Centre courses lay emphasis on soft skills – technical communication, emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills to perform well at work.
