• Build their career-worthiness and help them develop into future-ready contributors with ability to navigate a career in a volatile, changing world.
• Widen their choices of career and success, so that they are able to open up more opportunities for themselves and take up unconventional career pathways.
• Enable them to recognize how they, as technical professionals, can participate and make a positive contribution to their communities and to their state.
