In bridging the gap between mainstream education & industry BFGI provides soft skills training sessions regularly to the students, which are specifically tailored by working on the basic foundation of the students with the help of technological conformed pedagogy. As we all know, Education is not just about acquiring great dossiers of score cards or grade sheets. Education is all about nurturing your thoughts and actions in such a way that you are the fittest to survive in this era of cut throat competition. The industry skills are changing day by day by which placements are getting more competitive for the students. This is one of the main reasons to introduce the soft skills programs.

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.

3. Live Projects

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.
