The major goal of the Universities is to impart
formal education, so that the students would have better career options.
Taking into consideration this objective, Shivaji University has established
Placement Cell. Each department has a Placement Cell and a Placement Officer (DPO).
They prepare students resume of each department, which are forwarded to the
Central Placement Cell. Central Placement Cell is an Apex body. It coordinates
the activities of the departmental cells & establishes a liaison with
different companies. Campus interviews are thus organized, which help students
to get placements.
It is our experience that Science students get better positions, but the Arts
& Social Science students lag behind. However we must keep in mind that there
are immense opportunities even for them. Apart from teaching they have option
to appear for the Competitive examinations. There are large numbers of
vacancies not only at State level but also at Central level. Students should
be averse of the UPSC examinations. Recently UPSC has brought changes in the
examination pattern; especially paper number one has been considerably
changed. Students must remain well informed about these changes. The
University has two Centers, which can guide the students; Pre- Service
Training Centre for SC, ST, at Humanities Building & the second is Dr.
Babasaheb Ambedkar Competitive Examination Centre, Bhasha Bhawan. Students
must make use of these Centers.
The University has announced elections to the Senate, Academic Council & Board
of Studies; the Apex bodies of the University. This would be followed by
Management Council & faculty. I am sure that all stake holders of the
University would participate in them in free & non partisan atmosphere.
