Conceptualize the thought and suggestion made by 5th Dean Committee the Student READY Programme (Student Rural Entrepreneurship Awareness Development Yojana) was launched by Hon‟ble Prime Minister of India Mr. NarendraModi on 25th July, 2015.

There two components are being offered to the students of 7th and 8th semesters class. i) Rural Awareness Works Experience Programme (RAWEP) and ii) Experiential Learning Programme (ELP).

RAWE Programme:

Student READY (Rural Entrepreneurship Awareness Development Yojana) programme is a new initiative of Indian Council of Agricultural Research to reorient graduates of Agriculture and allied subjects for ensuring and assuring employability and develop entrepreneurs for emerging knowledge intensive agriculture.

Rural Awareness Works Experience (RAWE) and Agro-Industrial Attachment (AIA):

The Rural Awareness Works Experience (RAWE) helps the students primarily to understand the rural situations, status of technologies adopted by farmers, prioritize the farmers’ problems and to develop skills and attitude of working with farm families for overall development in rural area.

This programme is undertaken by the students during the VII semester for a total duration of 20 weeks with a weightage of 0+20 credit hours in two parts viz., RAWE and AIA. It consists of general orientation and on campus training by different faculties followed by village attachment/unit attachment in University/ College/ KVK or a Research station. The students are attached with the agro-industries to get an experience of the industrial environment and working. The students are required to record their observations in field and agro-industries on daily basis and prepare their project report based on these observations. The students will prepare and present project report.

Experiential learning:

The experiential learning programme is offered for 180 days (one semester) period in the final year. The word ‘experiential’ essentially means that learning and development are achieved through personally determined experience and involvement. The students of eighth semester are placed in different departments (Entomology, Plant pathology, Agricultural Chemistry and Seed Science) during eighth semester. They actively participate in the works carried out in the department and earns during learning.

Future Goals:

  • Enhance the knowledge of postgraduate students for national level examinations
  • Transformation of Department of Extension Education into Division with dedicated facilities of university
  • Develop the available faculties of university in different areas of extension education
  • Organizing one to three-week training Programme on core issues in the field of extension education and
  • Exploring information/knowledge about advances in extension education to the faculties of university
