PUNE: The 17th foundation day of Symbiosis Open Education Society(SOES) and 8th Anniversary of  Symbiosis Skills and Professional University (SSPU) were celebrated with a special program at SSPU’s Kiwale Campus. Chief Guest Mr. Rahul Mahival (I.A.S) Metropolitan Commissioner and CEO of Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA), Dr. S.B Mujumdar, Founder  President Symbiosis, and Dr. Swati Mujumdar Principal Director Symbiosis Open Education Society were present on the occasion. On this occasion, staff members who have excelled in their work were felicitated with various awards across different categories. 

Dr. S.B Mujumdar Founder and President Symbiosis said that the National Education Policy if followed in word and spirit will change the scenario in higher education. The focus of NEP is on a multidisciplinary campus, a mix of Indian knowledge and modern education but more importantly it has emphasized skills. Once we understand the importance of skills, skill-based universities will be the future universities of the country and every youth coming out of the universities will be employable. 

He added that apart from skills another aspect of importance is girl empowerment, especially in rural areas. There is a realization in the industry that appropriate manpower is not possible without women’s empowerment and support for girls from rural areas. The twin focus of skill-based education and focus on women empowerment should be encouraged. 

Rahul Mahiwal, Metropolitan Commissioner and CEO of Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) said that we should be able to channel the positive energy of our youth for their self-development and Nation-building. For this to happen we should be able to create opportunities for our youth through skill education. A teamwork of government, industry, and skill universities will help create special strength in skills. He said that  It is a matter of pride that Symbiosis Skills and Professional University has taken the initiative for skill-based education.

Dr. Swati Mujumdar, Principal Director SOES said that Symbiosis Skills and Professional University is the first skill University in Maharashtra. Our mission is to provide all skills that are relevant to the industry so that the students become industry-ready or self-employed. We must create a large skilled workforce for the local industry to grow and contribute to the Nation’s development. More than 25 percent of our students have started their own companies and this is the success of the skills university. 

Symbiosis Open Education Society today has more than 25000 students across Symbiosis Professional Skills and Professional University, Symbiosis Distance Learning, and Symbiosis Junior College .
