The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Bhubaneswar held its 8th Graduation Ceremony where 185 students from six different departments completed 4 years of bachelor course. The event also included students who completed 2 Years (for Masters) training that includes classroom, labs, and industry exposure via projects and internships.
The campus avoided rich celebrations this year as the state underwent through cyclone “Fani”.
The event that usually every year has a fashion show was replaced by a static display of final graduating collections designed by students.
The event saw attendance of many eminent leaders from industry including the likes of Mr Ranjiv Kapur, COO, Triburg; Mr. Alok Upreti, Brand Head Ashima Group; Mr Debopam Deb, Director, PWC; Mr. Turja Barua, Director, PWC, Mr Rahul Jindal, Operation Head and many more.
To look at the placement scenario, the campus completed placing 80% of their students while the drives are still on.
It has been noted that many students from NIFT are preferring to self start their business, which indicates a good mark! “This would change the future of fashion business in the country”, said Professor Binaya Bhusan Jena, Director, NIFT Bhubaneswar.
