Programme sponsored by EDI at USTM
A two weeks Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is being organized by USTM in
association with Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI),
Ahmedabad under the aegis of National Science & Technology Entrepreneurship
Development Board, Govt. of India from 18th to 31st March, 2015. The FDP was
inaugurated on March 18, 2015 by Shri K. Ahmed, Former Director, IIE and
Director, Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI).
During his inaugural address Shri Ahmed basically talked on “Entrepreneurship
and Economic Development”. He said that teachers are the main motivators for
their students and it is the teachers who can and should motivate the students
to select entrepreneurship as a career choice. He further went on to state that
if more and more students opted for Entrepreneurship the brain-drain problem we
are facing now will also be solved to a great extent.
Different technical sessions apart from Entrepreneurship & Economic Development
like Entrepreneurship in Education; Curriculum Development for promoting
Entrepreneurship; etc. are included in the programme.
