Engineering students can take a year off to start their own ventures

Written by Sarwat Fatima ·  28 sec read >

The state government of Kerala, India is now allowing engineering students to take a one-year break in order to start their own venture. Education Minister, P K Abdu Rabb, made the announcement during a seminar on ‘Startup Policy and Development’.

The new policy is only applicable to students who have completed at least two years of studies and want to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams or research activities. After a year, students can return to continue with their engineering course.

We hope Pakistan takes an inspiration from this initiative and help Pakistani students in starting their own ventures without dropping out of college.

Are you in favour of such a programme to be introduced in Pakistan? Let us know in the comment section below.
