Interaction between Institutions and Industries is the need of the hour. Students get an exposure on actual industrial environment and a chance to understand their work culture. Subsequently, students acquires knowledge about their career and helps them to prepare for placement in various disciplines.
On the other hand, industries are also facing stringent competitions and are in need of students who are aware of industry standards and capable of achieving the same. This calls for an urgent need for interaction of industries and academics. The industries can participate with institutes in moulding the students for industry ready by providing training. To materialize this, bridging the gap between industry and the institute is a must and for this, an Industry Institute Partnership Cell was constituted in February 2018 at ASIET.
The Industry Institute Partnership Cell (IIP Cell) ASIET provides a platform to the Institute and the industries. The aim of this platform is to join the hands considering all the Stakeholders such as; Institutions, Industry, Students and Society stand to gain as it can be a win-win partnership.
The continuous outcome of this partnership in terms of all the Stakeholders benefits is: Students and faculty members to be aware of industry expectations of skill sets required for the students. The students understand the lacunae in their skills and provide an opportunity to upgrade them by gaining the knowledge, hands-on training, beyond their regular curriculum. It also enables faculty to meet the global challenges, industry expectations and to nurture the students through effective teaching learning processes. The industry gets assistance of dynamic student force as well as guidance of expert faculties in R&D and for solving their complex problems. The Industry stands to gain the skilled manpower as per its requirement.
