Department of Training and Placement

The Training & Placement Division of the institution acts as an interface between the institute and companies, and believes in maintaining symbiotic, vibrant and purposeful relationship with industries across the country. The department hosts companies on campus and ensures that every aspirant is assured of a bright career of his/her choice.

A spacious auditorium equipped with the state-of-the-art facilities, seminar hall and multi-purpose facility halls have been made available by the institute to the cell for conducting the training and recruitment programmes.

Training and Placement cell organises sustained training programmes for the final year students towards preparing them for campus recruitment programmes. The cell has been fostering a very productive and mutually beneficial relationship with the industries towards generating the placement opportunities for our students. The cell provides the best of the facilities for conducting the recruitment programmes.

The Department of Training and Placement, the marketing division of the institute has these following functions and responsibilities:

The cell also organises entrepreneurial awareness camps, workshops and seminars to encourage the students to become entrepreneurs.

Nurtures Student-Corporate interaction, by the means of frequent industrial visits, practical and effective training and projects of industrial relevance for the students, with the intention to cease down the hiatus that exists between an industry and the classroom.

A feedback mechanism circulates which relates to curriculum improvement from the visiting companies to the administration (faculty), to ensure that the curriculum does not miss out on the latest industrial trends.
Assists students to define their career interest through expert counselling. Availability of updated database and job profile of the companies helps each student to analyse and choose one’s desired company.

Organises and co-ordinates Campus Placement Program, to fulfil its commitment of ‘job to every aspirant’.
A proper arrangement for summer practical training for all final year Students are an important function of our department.

The relevance of the Training and Placement Department is becoming increasingly significant in the current generation. The primary aim of this department is to bridge the gap that exists between the industries – Academia and to have a holistic approach towards career development. Having been exposed to the educational environment in Europe, it’s fascinating to see the Govt-Academia-Industry synergy that effectively harnesses the intellectual wealth of educational institutions. Efforts are being made to emulate the same for the benefit of the faculty and students here.

These days it is getting increasingly difficult to find employable engineers. One of the most prominent reasons for this is the lack of awareness amongst the students about their own potential, the current industry trends and also their inability to display confidence through effective communication skills. After having hopped from one bandwagon to another during their entire duration of time as a student, it can be a difficult task for a student to analyse his own strengths and effectively decide on a career goal.

To address these challenges, this department mainly focuses upon building the inherent potential of a student through ways such as effective counselling, improving career choice & decision making skills by facilitating workshops from industrialists/experts/entrepreneurs on relevant topics and other such measures. The idea is to achieve an Engineer who is not just a bag of skills but also an individual who is completely aware of the industry requirements displaying the charisma required to excel in any of his chosen fields.
