Emerging trends in technical and professional education call for value addition i.e. students must acquire something more than what is provided in the curriculum. No University curriculum can adequately cover all areas of importance or relevance. It is important for higher education institutions to supplement the curriculum to make students better prepared to meet industry demands as well as develop their own interests and aptitudes.
