Is Engineering Degree Sufficient?
Engineering degree is quite common now a days. Unless you have certain extra qualifications like M.Tech etc, it is difficult to succeed in the present neck break competition. Even if succeeded, it will be at lower end only. To reach the top of the success ladder, higher qualification is becoming a necessity day by day. ACE provides you the result oriented GATE coaching and techniques to enter into IITs, NITs and other premier institutes for pursuing higher studies and getting selected in the campus interviews.
Also, to face challenges in the present competitive & sensitive life environment, one has to be mentally balanced and possess certain good personality traits and competitive skills. It is also noticed that the rural background students are poor in effective presentation and communication skills required for campus and off – campus interviews.
Anticipating the present need of the Engineering Students, the ACE has designed an “Excellence program” to impart all the extra competitive skills required for the students. The above “excellence program” is offered free of cost to all our GATE students. The classes of the “excellence program” are arranged periodically along with our effective daily technical coaching for GATE. The “excellence program” will consist of the following features for a total time span of about 20 hrs.
* The Power of ‘ NOW ‘
* Proper Goal Setting
* Study Techniques
* Time Management
* Analytical & Mental Ability
* Presentations and Communication Skills
* Effective Resume Preparation
* Group Discussion
* Facing Technical and HR interviews
* Stress Management
* Career Opportunities
* Health Management (Importance of Meditation etc.,)
* Motivation Classes ( “Leaders are not born” )
