Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Wal­jat Col­lege of Ap­plied Sciences (WCAS) will be or­gan­is­ing four weeks of free sum­mer classes for high school stu­dents from July 30. WCAS fo­cuses on com­pre­hen­sive de­vel­op­ment of stu­dents as they are ex­pected to con­trib­ute sig­nif­i­cantly not only to the busi­ness world but also to the so­ci­ety at large.

The four-week long pro­gramme is de­signed to pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to the high school stu­dents to use their free time op­ti­mally by learn­ing the fun­da­men­tals of IT as well as English lan­guage skills and soft skills. The classes would be con­ducted in the col­lege cam­pus it­self which will fur­ther pro­vide a glimpse of col­lege life to the prospec­tive stu­dents. While at­tend­ing the course, the stu­dents can also get an in­sight of var­i­ous ca­reer op­tions avail­able to them af­ter leav­ing the school. Ap­prox­i­mately 120 stu­dents will ben­e­fit from this pro­gramme which fo­cusses on pro­vid­ing the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge, hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence and ac­tiv­ity-based learn­ing. Cer­tifi­cates would be awarded to the stu­dents af­ter the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the course.

Dean, WCAS, Prof (Dr) S L Gupta, be­lieves that stu­dents will reap ben­e­fits by get­ting the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal knowl­edge of the sub­jects and ex­po­sure to dif­fer­ent fields of study in fu­ture. He has also ex­pressed sat­is­fac­tion with the num­ber of par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents and has ad­vised fac­ulty mem­bers to en­sure ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents.

This pro­gramme is a reaf­fir­ma­tion of the com­mit­ment of WCAS to­wards serv­ing the com­mu­nity. It will fa­mil­iarise and equip the stu­dents with nec­es­sary skills to pre­pare them­selves for a bright fu­ture.
