Significant points in bridging the gap
between Industry - Institution
Establishment of Industry-Institute
Partnership /Incubation Center.
Organizing Workshops, conferences and
symposia with joint participation of the
faculty and the industries.
Encouraging experts from industry to
visit Technical Institution to deliver
Participation of experts from industry in
curriculum development. Collaborative
Arranging visits of staff members to
Professional consultancy by the
faculty to industries.
Industrial testing by faculty &
technicians at site or in laboratory.
Joint research programs and field
studies by faculty and people from
Visits of faculty to industry for study and
discussions or delivering lectures on
subjects of mutual interest.
Visits of industry executives and practicing engineers
to the Institute for seeing research work and
laboratories, discussions and delivering lectures on
industrial practices, trends and experiences.
MoU between the Institute and
industries to bring the two sides
emotionally and strategically
Human resource development
programs by the faculty for
Short-term assignment to faculty
members in industries.
Visiting faculty/professors from
Professorial Chairs sponsored by
industries at the Institute.
R&D Laboratories sponsored by
industries at the Institute.
Fellowships instituted by industries
at the Institute for students.
Practical training of students in
Some factors, which hinder
Absence of a full time/exclusive
Industry Institution Interaction cells
at both the places, i.e. institutions
as well as industry associations.
Curriculums are rigid and in some
cases out dated.
Serious involvement of industry in
curriculum design is lacking.
There is a problem of Mismatch. The
gap between industry needs and the
academic communities’ aspirations
appears to be considerably large.
The factors which hinder the
Industry Institute Interaction can be
tackled provided we ensure the
Full time Industry Institution Interaction cells are
established by the institutes, industry associations
and big industries. These cells should clearly define
and publish the goals and key performance areas of
interaction. These cells should operate in Single
Curriculums are required & are more flexible so that
a student could if required, work in industry for
considerable period of time instead of doing some
courses in college only but still gain the required
credits. Industry involvement in curriculum designs
review will be helpful in this process.
Interaction between academic and
industry associations can be improved
through sharing of expertise at a
common platform on specific
Institutes may take up consultancy
services in industry through industry
associations for solving specific
problems of the industry.
All departments of Institute if, involved in
industrial oriented activities on a continuous
basis either in the form of consultancy or
sponsored research or for curriculum
development, it will give better results.
Industry Association may provide
support for basic studies/research
undertaken by Technical Institution
Institutes faculty may take up
projects in industry and students
should be involved to execute
Industry owners/experts may be
invited for lectures/interaction with
the students in institutions.
Access to libraries in institutions if provided to industry, will help
both the industry and institutions ( for a certain fee for such
access) Similarly, institutions may have access to the resources
available in industry, Apart from Industry Associations; the
Institutions should also establish linkages with Govt. agencies
which are engaged in Industrial development activities.
Ideally the exchange of industry and institute
experts is required i.e. the academia should work
in industry for a fixed term intermittently and
industry experts should work in institutions.
Objectives of Industry-Institute
Interaction by Bridging the Gap
Close interaction between the institute and
the industry/enterprise is seen as the
platform for showcasing best practices,
latest technological advancements and their
implementation and impact on the Industry.
It is basically considered to improve the
quality of technical and vocational
education adequately to meet the
needs of the industry and economy.
Having a close interaction in place,
industries are able to participate in
technical and vocational education
programs, with the goal of cross-fertilizing
ideas for systems improvement.
To integrate industrial training and other inputs from the
industry with the teaching-learning processes,
interaction is necessary as it develops students’
awareness on job functions in the industry, attitudes to
adapt to industrial environment, proper practical and
relevant knowledge, skills and competencies in
preparation to becoming self employed
Mutual benefit is derived from the shared expertise
and experiences between the industry and the
institute. In addition, operating within the framework
of a specific cooperative program is an essential
outcome of having both industries and institute agree
on specific skills training for some specific jobs.
