Why Us

Academic courses have lost their sheen and more and more students who pass out from such institutes are finding it difficult to get 'employed'. The reason is simple – little practical experience, no exposure to on-the-job requirements and programmes that rely more on theory. DES'IFT bridges this gap and offers practical programmes that can up your employability quotient and help you find a rewarding job in no time at all.
