Triple E-award for the Best University
Career Guidance Unit of Faculty of Science won the second place for their programme “Service-Learning as a community engagement initiative to assist underprivileged schools” under the category of Community Engagement Initiative of the Year at the 2020 Asia-Pacific Triple E Awards. Service Learning was introduced into the curriculum by the Career Guidance Unit (CGU) in 2012. The course allowed for a novel working experience by providing third-year science undergraduates with an opportunity to exercise their scientific knowledge and skills to contribute in community projects. The financial support for the project is provided by corporate sector partners. The Service Learning Programme is managed solely by the volunteer academic staff members of the Faculty. The awarding ceremony was held at Kochi, Kerala India on the 10th of January 2020.
