Awards, Scholarships and Studentships

Religious Life

Religious beliefs and spirituality play a vital role in developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ), which is crucial for shaping a well-rounded individual in society. The ability to empathize and understand the emotions of others is a key aspect of emotional intelligence. As a DEEE student, you are encouraged to participate in spiritual activities organized by religious societies within the Faculty or University. Let your belief guide you towards emotional intelligence and become an inspiration to others. Our aim is to promote enriching dialogue, meaningful rituals, and enduring friendships among people of all religious backgrounds or no religious background.
