Since last several years it has been observed that there is a gap between the academia and the skills required by the industry. With the vision of bridging the gap between classroom and industry Skills Development Cell was started in 2016 by Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering, Acropolis Institute of Technology and Research, Indore.
SDC is a joint initiative of faculties and students started by Prof. Jyoti Pipariya and two of his students Ahtesham Hashmi and Apurv Dubey under the guidance and patronage of Dr. Uday Chandrawat (HOD, Dept. of ECE).
We are working towards inculcating technical and entrepreneurial skills in engineering students to transform them into self sustained individuals able to create a better society and ultimately a better future for the world.
To promote this intellection of skills amongst students, Skills Development Cell is working in mutual collaboration with students as well as corporate bodies like, Autosys, Contrive Technologies, Silicon Design Lab Pvt Ltd, Codenscious Pvt Ltd, Indeyes Infotech, Aptron Solutions, SkyFi Labs Bangalore etc. ensuring optimum success and achievement of our goal.
All of us at Skills Development Cell share a common belief that nothing is impossible to achieve with mutual cooperation and team work.
We strive to bring all the students under one roof, with one mission that is “Self-Development”
We firmly believe that self motivation is the key to all success and we are working hard to inspire students and awaken the spirit of self-motivation amongst them through our various programs.
Creating an ecosystem to provide a platform for collective building of intellect with a spirit of team work and mutual cooperation and coordination is what we continually strive for.

Skills Development Cell, for the promotion of analytical skills and Research & Development amongst students has started an Innovation club in association with SkyFi Labs Pvt Ltd Bangalore.
The innovation club aims to facilitate young engineering students working in the direction of R&D by providing them with the necessary guidance and tools needed by them to realize their ideas and thoughts into practically feasible solutions.
Technepreneur is another initiative by SDC aimed to promote entrepreneurship amongst the students, with a twist that the start-up idea must be related to science and technology.
