Soft Skills to be made Elective

A choice based credit system will be implemented in all colleges and universities of Tamilnadu from this academic year. The education minister Ponmudy has urged these institutions to provide soft skills to students as an elective and also to increase the quality of their language training labs. The focus will be not only on English fluency but also on personality development, confidence building, inter-personal skills and presentation skills. This effort couldn't have come at the right time where IT companies are looking for people with good soft skills augmenting their technical skills. The vice chancellors of various universities across the state have agreed to this new proposal by the government and are confident of building a better infrastructure for soft skills development.
