“Skill India,” a mission that our honorable Prime Minister has envisioned for the development of our country is supported strongly by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship with the help of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). Partnership with private and public firms to provide skill based learning and train the students to be skilled and readily employable through various vocational courses is a bold step taken by the Government.
Vocational courses at SRM University Sikkim is designed to provide students a fast tracked edge in getting a job. The present world is a highly competitive world. We need right kind of skill and those skills must be job oriented. The present educational mechanism seems to be stressed with an extreme level of academic endeavor that many students find it difficult to cope with. These students are thus deprived of the job market. The vocational course thus help students get trained in specific trade or occupation, provide accredited training in job-related technical skills and get employed in the particular trade. SRM University, Sikkim aims to remove this problem and equip students with a kind training that can easily help them in fetching a job. Therefore, the university has added two specific vocational courses to the academic program this year.
- Diploma (1 year)
- Advance Diploma (2 years)
- B.Voc. (Software Development)
- B.Voc (Pharmaceutical Manufacturing)

Exit after First Year - In such a case, the student will be provided with a Diploma Degree.
Exit after the Second year - In such case, the student will be provided with Advance Diploma degree.
Students completing three years of the course will be given Bachelors in Vocational Degree.
