A student of Delhi University’s Cluster Innovation Centre will host a live telecast of a webinar, Google-Hangout on Air. The webinar is a very innovative ICT tool that will serve as a platform for aspirants to put forward their queries related to CIC admissions, programmes, activities, etc.

The webinar will constitute senior faculty members and students who will share their personal experiences and perspectives.

“This allows aspirants to relate to the programme and the institution. We have released a web form where aspirants are expected to submit their queries and doubts. These will be cleared by a panel on the day of the webinar. The webinar can be accessed live from the YouTube channel of CIC. The link to the telecast will be available on the Facebook Page of CIC. The recorded telecast of the same can later be accessed at any later date,” says Sahil Mathur, a fourth-year BTech student who works with outreach programmes for undergraduate admission in technology offered at CIC.
