University - Industry Interactions

Better interaction between technical institutions and Industry is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the engineering curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country.

With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries have become stiff. To solve their engineering problems they look up now to Engineering Institutions. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic institute.

To promote University-Industry Interaction the following steps are being undertaken and explored:

  • Establishment of University – Industry
  • Organizing Workshops, conferences and symposia with joint participation of the faculty and the industries
  • Participation of experts from industry in curriculum development. Arranging visits of staff members to various industries. Professional consultancy by the faculty to industries
  • Joint research programs and field studies by faculty and people from industries
  • Memoranda of Understanding between the University and industries to bring the two sides academically and strategically closer
  • B.Tech and M.Tech. Projects / dissertation work in industries under joint guidance of the faculty and experts from industry
  • Internship in Industry

  • Scholarships / fellowships instituted by industries at the University for students
