S.K.U. College of Engineering and Technology with the initiative effort of university authorities as well as with promoting attitude of our Principal, SKUCET, established “ Women Empowerment Cell” with effect from this academic year. WEC mainly aims to empower girl students in addition to sensitize all issues related to women (both students and faculties) and to make the college campus a safe place for women students and faculty members.

The cell also aims at creating awareness of their rights and duties. It also provides a platform for women to share their experiences and views regarding their status in the society and to suggest ways to improve and empower themselves. The cell mainly stands for facilitating women’s empowerment through guest lectures, seminars, awareness programmes and other welfare activities. WEC will step forward with specific objectives and plan of action by focusing quality activities for the well-being of girl students.
