The college aims at ensuring that students, working in teams, deal with such matters through Business Incubations(in centres) integrating acquired knowledge and skills to professionally plan their new business start-ups and commercialize smoothly and create jobs through their enterprises. Accordingly the Colleges programs have been designed purposively to deliver such objectives..
