It’s not that AMU does not have enough but we need more than enough because the professional areas are expecting beyond the sufficient criteria from the young generation.

The excellence is now not restricted to the hard work of the people but on how smartly and efficiently they can run their work. What extra skills they hold for the success of the companies remains the challenge. It would be wrong to say that AMU has not made any modification and addition in the courses but still there is some major lacking as per the needs of today’s time which is consequently decreasing the opportunities of students here and making them less competent in the occupational settings.
