Continuing Education is a lifelong learning process which meets the variety of needs of Industry, Business and the Community and includes skill training or upgrading of skills and knowledge through competence based education.  Resources available in the form of buildings, laboratories, instruments, capability of faculty members, etc. can be put to use not only for our own students but also for industries, other professionals, other stake holders and for overall to the general public.

Industries are constantly changing. Continuing Education is required for workers to stay current with the latest developments, skills, and new technologies required for their fields.  Overall, Continuing Education is considered a way for professionals to keep abreast of their fields so that they don’t lag behind.

Continuing Education is:
  • Process of ongoing learning new skills and knowledge.
  • For furthering knowledge base and even for employability.
  • Also for working professionals to further advance and promote their intellectual capabilities while still working.
  • For skilled workforce for increased economic productivity.
  • Required as employers are seeking both educated and skilled workers.

Institutes should carry out SWOT Analysis to arrive at Continuing Education programme and prioritize areas of focus for Continuing Education.  Credibility of the Continuing Education is key consideration.
With the above aim, Nirma University decided to establish a Centre for Continuing Education to cater to the needs of various stakeholders.
