The Department of Marine Catering and Hotel Management conducted a Bridge course (Online Mode), as part of the Student Induction Programme, for the first year students from 18.09.2020 to 28.09.2020. The objective of the programme was to bridge the gap that would possibly exist between the academia and the newly joined MC&HM aspirants in terms of orienting their academic environ and partly eliminating the fear factor that might cripple their understanding into becoming qualitative Hospitality persons with a social responsibility. Mr. C. Suresh Kumar, Head of the Department addressed the students and informed the Rules and regulations, Department discipline, Academic details, Syllabus, Lesson plan, Attendance, the Department Activities for the Academic year 2020, and also introduced the faculty members and the Courses handled by them. He passed over the Bridge course manual, lesson plan, time table and attendance log sheet to the class representative. An Entry level Test was conducted for the students, following which, the respective staff members started their bridge course according to the schedule prepared by the Head of the Department. A few parents and Alumni interacted with the students. Finally, an Exit level Test was conducted. This two-week student enhancement and development programme was devised for the overall grooming and enhancement of the student fraternity with special emphasis for students from the rural and semi rural community.
