National Service Scheme: Making an Impact

NSS is one of the three optional courses that all the B. Tech. / Dual Degree / Integrated M.A. students have to get enrolled in their first year, but we, the “Family of NSS” consider it as much more than that. Though it is a course according to the academic curriculum, one can see a lot of enthusiasm in the freshers when they do something as a part of NSS, be it the events like DOS collection or the projects. NSS also provides ‘winternships’ (winter internships) and also conducts various lectures and skill –building sessions such as web-operations sessions for the volunteers enrolled in it.
