    One normally don't buy a product when a similar one with an additional feature is available. The same is the case with the students. A student with some additional skills is often sold very easily in the job market than a student with only a limited academic qualifications. Therefore, skill addition is extremely important in the present-day context. Keeping this in view, the college has adopted this practice to help the students to build their career with confidence.

    The following training programs are run by the college for the students to build up their capacity and adding to their skills:

    Training in Shrimp Hatchery:

    As there are nearly 50 shrimp hatcheries existing in Ganjam, the home district of the college, and out of which 35 are there at Haripur, a small sea-based village which is only 3 kilometres away from the college, the college management has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with some of the hatcheries to give free training to our students on the techniques of algal feed culture, process of feeding, culture of larva, packing, marketing and instrumentation by the expert and trained personnel working there. This facility is made available particularly to the students of marine science and zoology department.

    Training in Kewda Industries:

    Besides, as kewda flowers are grown aplenty in nearby areas of the college and many processing industries are there for extracting its chemical contents, the college authorities have also made a Memorandum of Understanding with one of the industries to train up our students on the technique of collecting and quality checking of flowers, distillation process, preservation of chemicals, and its marketing.

    Training in Printing Technology:

    Printing is a growing industry which provides a lot of employment opportunities to unemployed youths. Therefore, the college has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Sai Saileja Printing Press, Berhampur, to give training to our students who are interested to learn about the techniques of offset printing, DTP and computer work, book binding, screen printing and flex printing.

    Selection and Evaluation Process:

    These are the short-term training programs which are normally conducted during holidays and vacations. Each year a number of small group of interested students are formed and sent to different industries for undertaking training in different fields. After successful completion of their training, the college is informed about it by the trainers.



    Many of our students have already been engaged in some industrial establishments in jobs in which they were trained up. Some even have established their own independent units and given employment to others


    No major problems faced for launching these training programs as no financial commitments were made with the training institutions.



    Presently, the whole world is confronting with a dire problem of environmental degradation, resulting into natural calamities of varied proportions. Besides, the humanity on the earth is also facing some serious problems like energy crisis and water shortage. Therefore, it's absolutely necessary for every single individual and every single organization to help solve these problems in every possible way. As a part of its efforts towards this, the college has initiated a noble practice of creating a cleaner and greener campus with the following objectives to fulfil.

    1.To create a lush greenery around the campus 2.To create a pollution free atmosphere inside the campus 3.To save and conserve energy 4.To save water by limiting its wastage 5.To develop a solid waste management system 6.To develop a medicinal and botanical garden in the campus 7.To create a eco-friendly atmosphere


    Cleaning the environment is the key to existence and survival of life on planet earth. Maintaining a clean environment reduces pollution, preserves our biosphere, protects endangered species and also helps preserve the earth's natural resources. This is more so important in the pandemic time which the world is going through now. Though it is not possible to completely detoxify the environment, still its effects can be reduced with our conscious efforts. It all requires a sense of responsibility by everyone in the society. Our little effort can improve the situation and help change the atmosphere we inhabit. Therefore, the college has initiated its efforts to inculcate the culture of cleanliness and sanitation in the students, teachers and staff alike.


    To promote a clean, green and eco-friendly atmosphere in the campus, the college has initiated the following steps:


    Plantation drives by the NSS volunteers and students in general have been taken up for creating a soothing environment in and around the college. A botanical and herbal garden has also been developed in the campus

    Energy Conservation:

    The use of traditional filament lamps and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) have been replaced by the energy efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) in office, classrooms, common rooms and laboratories, and the students, faculty members and staff are sensitised to use electric power rationally. Besides, solar lights have also been installed at strategic places in the campus and there's a plan to install a 10KW On-Grid Solar System in the near future.

    Cleanliness Drive:

    NSS programmes are organised to keep the environment clean and green. Students are sensitised towards this needs through meetings and personal guidance by the faculties. Also, various programmes have been organised by the college for contributing towards government's flagship programme "SWACHH BHARAT ABHIYAN".

    Waste Management:

    Separate dustbins have been placed at every important points of the college to collect biodegradable , non-biodegradable and e-wastes. While biodegradable wastes are decomposed and used in producing vermin compost and the non-biodegradable and e-wastes are disposed of through outside agencies. The local NAC is collecting the non-biodegradable objects and the e-wastes are handed over to the Govt. Industrial Training Institute of Berhampur, which produces different attractive models by using them.

    Restricting the use of Plastic and Polythene:

    Students are restricted to use plastic and polythene bags inside the college campus and advised not to use the same outside of the campus also. Periodic sensitisation meetings are held by the NSS Units of the college to highlight the harmful effects of using it.

    Lesser Use of Vehicles:

    Students are also discouraged not to use motor vehicles unless it's very urgent and unavoidable.

    Rainwater Harvesting:

    The college has made provisions for rainwater harvesting in the campus to minimize the waste of this precious natural resource.


    1.The existence of different types of trees like Teaks, Eucalyptus, Neem, Cashew Nuts, etc. in and around the campus.
    2.Existence of the Botanical and Herbal Garden in the college.
    3.Indigenously build rainwater harvesting system.
    4.Vermi composting Unit.
    5.Physical presence of Dustbins and waste disposal pits, etc.

    Though the college has not received any specific recognition for its endeavor, the surroundings bears a testimony to its success. But, our efforts will be on to get due recognition from the authorised agencies in the foreseeable future


    The college faced a cardinal problem with regards to finance due to its limited resources. If it gets adequate assistance from the government side, the college will be able to undertake many more innovative projects to help improving its surroundings.



    In adherence to its vision of HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS, the college has moved every inch forward with very carefully taken steps to uplift the educational, moral and socio-economic standard of the students belonging to this area which is predominantly inhabited by the fishermen community and other backward classes.
