Diploma Programme

Diploma in Engineering program under the School of Engineering of O P Jindal University, Raigarh is set-up to develop skilled manpower through competency-based training. The rise in global competition has prompted organizations to devise strategies to have a talented and innovative workforce to gain a competitive edge. Developing an internship policy is an impactful strategy for creating a future talent pool for the industry. The Internship/ Training program helps students in gaining professional know-how and benefits, corporate getting trained manpower, and even discovering future business leaders.

We at O P Jindal University want to renew education offered to the diploma engineering students, to be as close as possible to the industrial requirement and expectations. Competition in the job sector is rising exponentially and securing entry-level jobs is getting very difficult, as the students passing out from technical institutions lack the experience and skills required by industry. At OPJU, we strive hard to impart industrial exposure to students through industry-academia blended programs. In this students are kept in close proximity to the industry. Hence OPJU has started its blended program at diploma level.
