At SEED, we believe that programs initiated for Skill Development should create individuals who become competent enough to compete in the markets for the skills they possess.

Keeping with this idea of a holistic training structure, students are also encouraged to take of extra classes, tests, Olympiads and practical submissions. Read More »
