About Training and Placement Department
Unemployment is globally regarded as a major social and economic problem. But first question that strikes to mind is whether the problem is unemployment or lack of employability. According to a study by Higher Education Forum there are gaps that exist between the expectations of the employers and skills possessed by students. In order to fill this gap, BFGI has established a full-fledged Department of Training and Placement. BFGI has a vision of providing students with not only placements but to raise their employability, skill development and achieve 100% placements.
BFGI has always laid emphasis on overall development of students. Its not only that degrees are going to take students ahead in their careers in today’s competitive world. BFGI is taking swift efforts time and again to provide students with the kind of training which not only helps them get acquainted with the technical skills that industry demands but also the development of soft skills like desirable communication skills and confidence level.
Most of the times the B.Tech. students are sent for compulsory training in their 7th and 8th semester, which they have to get, arranged themselves. But BFGI works on the principle of sending its students for the industrial training in the 8th semester to provide them Placement- cum- Training or on- the -Job Training. Students of engineering are provided training with companies who are ready to absorb them immediately after trainings. BFGI ensures the placements of students before training starts. BFGI is extending this facility for its students and is first of such kind institution in the region that aims at creating students who are fully employable. The training provided to students is an attempt to make them prepared for challenges coming ahead in dynamic and changing job market scenario.
Training is a learning practice that involves the attainment of knowledge, brushing up of skills, concepts, and rules or changing of attitudes and behaviors to enhance the performance of trainees. Our department of Training and placement explicitly realizes the above concepts to drill a strengths/weakness through continuous internal as well as professional training which eventually helps to turn them into effervescent & groomed professionals who dare to touch the altitudes of victory at any cost.

The Department of Training and Placement conducts internal Trainings for the students, which is a crucial part of our curriculum and time table. The unique feature is that we have a dedicated team of more than 25 full time trainers who strive hard to provide the right platform to the students not just by enhancing their skills but also evaluating these students through Student Employability Scorecard. The strengths and weaknesses of the students are analysed through this student employability scorecard and then the required skills are brushed up based on that analysis. This Training commences right from the time a student enters in the institution and students need not to pay anything extra for this.
Through Professional Trainers of Reputed Companies: Only internal trainings are not sufficient to accomplish the goal of overall development henceforth we have collaborated with reputed corporate giants like HP, HCL, WIPRO, and MANPOWER for providing students with professional training. The professional trainers of these companies impart both technical and non-technical training to BFGI students.
The Compulsory Training is a mere formality in other colleges but BFGI lays special stress on providing quality trainings to the students and it is not at all a formality for us. BFGI meticulously supervise these trainings on regular basis.
a) Training within the Course: In some courses, students have to undergo short-term training within the course like 1 week/4 weeks/6 weeks. The department lays due emphasis on providing this training to BFGI students in reputed organizations.
b) Training at the end of the Course: BFGI forms a distinction by following a different tradition wherein most of the colleges send their B.Tech. Students for Training in 7th and 8th semester, BFGI sends them in 8th semester only so that these students can be groomed more and latter get absorbed in these companies. Our Faculty Advisors effectively supervise the trainings of students by visiting the respective companies and also invite the students to the campus on regular intervals and ask them to deliver presentations on their training project.
c) Placement Cum Training: BFGI facilitates stipend based Trainings keeping into mind that the students finally become the part of organization by knowing the culture and work processes after completing their trainings in the respective companies. This becomes a win-win situation for both the student as well as the organization because students complete their training with interest as the stipend is offered and organization that has invested its time and resources during the training on students gets ready-to work professionals.
2. Guest Lectures & Industrial Visits
Department of Training & Placement arranges industrial visits for students of varied streams in order to provide them with an insight for application of their theoretical knowledge in the practical scenario. The students get a better understanding of Industrial processes that later helps in their multi-dimensional development. The department also invites eminent experts from corporate & academic houses like IBM, Genpact, IITs and IIMs respectively.
3. Live Projects
Live Project is an effective aid in enabling the students to relate theory to practice. Students need some mechanism by which transfer of skills takes place from the classroom to the workplace. We have provided many stipend-based live projects to our students from big Industry giants in past for our students and have accomplished the objective of Earn while Learn.
