Projects Undertaken

B.Voc.-Interior Design, CSJM University, Kanpur organised a Photography Workshop by renowned Photographer Sayed Wasi Haider Kashif in association with FujifilmIndia. This was a unique opportunity for the participants to learn photography and editing techniques from an expert. Mr. Sayed told the audience that the shot will only be as good as he thought and preparedness that is done before even clicking the shot.

B.Voc – Interior Design Department took a webinar with globally renowned people from the field of Interior Design. With an evolving lifestyle and fast paced urbanization, the scope of interior design has grown significantly, making it one of the most sought after professions in India today. The market trend shows a remarkable growth in the demand of interior designers. Many people rely on professionals to design spaces to achieve a comfortable and happy living. With booming property prices, Indian homes are becoming smaller and house owners seem to have found the solution to the space crisis in the face of interior designing. These were some of the insights of the webinar conducted.

B.Voc – Fashion Technology Department together with Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises got this opportunity to conduct GARMENT MANUFACTURING Course, a 30 days programme, which was to understand the market trends and create job opportunities for the young people in the field of garment construction. During the course duration we had different professionals from various fields to make the student understand the importance of a strong entrepreneurial background in the current covid situation.
