In a bid to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship among engineering students in Kerala, the state government has said that students, who have completed two years of their course, can take a break for a year to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
The students can take a break of a maximum period of one year for entrepreneurial activities or for research activities, Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb said at a seminar on 'Startup policy and Development'.
After the break, the students can return to continue with their engineering course, he said. 'Residential Student Entrepreneur programme' has been drawn up as in western countries where students can earn while they learn, he said, according to PTI.
