International Visits

Industrial visits bridge the gap between theory and practice as many concepts, theories and processes discussed in the classrooms can be verified in the industries practically. They provide answers to the concerns of students regarding clarifications on their subjects, future job domains and applicability of theoretical explanations. It’s also an opportunity to see personally how a manufacturing unit or service enterprise works on a daily basis and to interact with industry professionals to clarify queries and get more insights on the dynamic shop floor operations. During such visits both nationally and internationally, there is also exposure to diverse cultures, cuisines and tourist sites apart from the daily routine activities.
