Education plays an important role in the overall development of a human being as well as the nation. It is a unique investment in the present and for the future. India, at present, is recognized as one of the youngest nations of the world with over 50% of population under the age of 30 years. In order to harness the full demographic dividend, India needs high quality educational system which is affordable, flexible and relevant to the individuals, as well as to needs of the society as a whole. UGC launched scheme of B.Voc. Degree and M.Voc master degree programme to expand the scope of vocational education and also to provide vertical mobility to the students admitted into Community Colleges for Diploma programmes to a degree and post graduate programme in the Universities and Colleges. Deen Dayal Upadhyay Centres for Knowledge Acquisition and Upgradation of Skilled Human Abilities and Livelihood (KAUSHAL) is one of its kind.These Centres would not focus on skilling alone but also develop entrepreneurship traits. The centres may endeavour to maintain a pyramidical structure of student enrolment with respect to Diploma, Advanced Diploma, B.Voc. and Post graduate diploma, M.Voc.


Padmashree Institute of management and Sciences is proud to announce a very unique course B.Voc. affiliated under Bangalore University which is recognized by DDU KAUSAL KENDRA which is a skill enhancement program. This course helps students to become industry ready and gives life science students excellent opportunity to acquire skills and apply them in the 6 months industry internship which is a part of the curriculum.


A candidate entering the first year has options to do a one-year diplom, two-year advanced diploma or full three-year B.Voc.


The fast growing biotechnology sector in Karnataka has been facing severe shortage of industry-ready graduates and post-graduates for a long time. In an effort to fulfill the needs of the industry, Padmashree has started a very unique course where the students will be trained extensively in the field of Food Processing and Nutraceuticals. The course comprises of two segments. First segment comprises of 5 semesters classroom teaching where the students are trained extensively to be industry ready and the second segment comprises of industry internship where the students get a wonderful opportunity to undergo training in various Food Processing and Nutraceuticals industries to get practical experience in various departments.


    • A candidate who has passed two years pre-university examinations conducted by the Karnataka PU Education Board or any other examination considered as equivalent thereto shall be eligible for admission to B.Voc.

    • Lateral entry is permitted for a candidate who has passed two years pre-university examinations conducted by the Karnataka PU Education Board or any other examination considered as equivalent thereto and with minimum one year diploma/vocational/any relevant course in sciences to Semester III of B. Voc Degree.
