Work Experience (RAWE) Program for imparting quality, practical and productive oriented
education towards self employment is very essential. It provides significant hands on
experience in acquiring skills which are mainly aim at creating product or providing a
service to those who demand.

RAWE Program was included in the curricula of Agriculture graduate Degree Programme
with the following objectives:

 To gain knowledge and experience on operational aspects of agricultural


technology being used by farmers.
 To develop communication skills in interns by effective use of extension
methods.
 To help the interns to understand and appreciate the agricultural problems of the
village with special reference to constraints.
 To acquaint the interns with functioning of various agricultural Researches,
Development, Agro-Based industries, Extension Agencies and other allied
organizations involved in rural development.

RAWE Programme is an important competence and confidence building activity and tool

graduates in Agricultural Sciences. The combination of education on farm research and
extension programme had better exposure of fresh farm graduates to the real ground
problems at the farmers field and acted as a tool of the feedback to workers for the
