SAIARD Institute for Skill & Entrepreneurship Development (SISED)

“Skill Development is not only the way of getting employment but also a pathway for the Development of a nation.”


SAIARD Institute for Skill & Entrepreneurship Development (SISED) under the aegis of South Asian Institute for Advanced Research and Development (SAIARD) has been formed with a vision to offer different skill-based and job oriented courses either in certificate or diploma formats for the working professional, students and others in view to widening their knowledge and enhancing their skills and to make them eligible for the competitive job market. The Centre will generally provide the hands-on training to the candidates having no formal educational qualification but having prior learning experience which will lead to their life skill development. The learning domain includes courses for non-traditional students, non-degree career training, workforce training and formal personal enrichment courses. The courses under SISED are making education relevant to real-life situations and are also preventing the alienation of the educated from society.

To provide this skill-based courses SISED has developed several centres like the Centre for Applied Geoinformatics, Centre for Built Environment, Centre for Financial Management and Economic Research etc. and all the centres contain a certain amount of courses which is mostly skill-based as well as industry-specific. All the Courses offered by SISED are open to all even for the working personnel’s, teachers and students also. All such programmes will be delivered either through i) ICT based on-line mode, or ii) Contact mode or iii) Blending/ Hybrid mode i.e. combination of both (i) & (ii). As the prima foci of this centre are to focus upon work-related needs as also self-growth and individual development, so the centre has adopted ‘Go Beyond the Walls Strategy’ under which it can be associated with any academic or non-academic institutions to deliver the need-based and modular training programmes at the doorsteps of the learners. In addition to that, the SISED will have the facility to provide training in other domain/ discipline for the already trained persons engaged in various activities for the advancement of knowledge and further mobility in the workplace.

Therefore, on behalf of our centre, we welcome Indian as well as international students to study and to attend different job-oriented, cutting-edge courses at SAIARD Training Institute. SISED reflects the SAIARD’s vision and commitment to providing quality education without geographical boundaries, enhancing the diversity of its student community and building strategic partnerships in the country and also around the world.


The major objectives of SISED are:

i. Empowering the students capacity and quality by providing skill based education.

ii. Make them Employable.

iii. Strengthening the hands of both public and private sectors by providing skill based man-power.
