Cambridge Institute of Technology provides various opportunities to students to get an exposure to industry and community. There is a strong focus to develop critical professional skills by providing opportunities to apply classroom learning in practical setting.
One such programme, aptly named ‘Lokahita’, is a yearlong programme in which students work on various social impact projects with social organizations working to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. This programme is run under the umbrella of Community for Social Impact (CSI), a larger initiative for community service across Cambridge Group of Institutions.
The programme is offered in partnership with an organization called LetsTagOn, a platform which provides social impact experiences to youth through sensitization, social immersions, internships and volunteering.
The programme is mapped to MBA programme outcomes and course outcomes of key courses such as managerial communication, marketing management & organizational behaviour. The program is aligned to development of critical management skills such as empathy, critical thinking, team work, problem solving, leadership & communication skills.
Lokahita programme engages students on all Saturdays during the 1st and 2nd semester in accordance with the academic calendar.
