In light of the liberal economic and industrial policy recently adopted by the Govt. of India, the industrial scenario is fast changing. Industries are compelled to export a part of their production and complete with multinationals for the internal market. The emphasis has shifted to quality products and well trained manpower to produce such products. There has been a greater need for industries to depend on technical institutions for R&D and for supply of highly qualified and skilled manpower. Retraining of the work force has become major activity for all industries. There is, thus a good opportunity for institute to interact with industries for mutual benefits.
The Industry-Institute Interaction would accrue mutual benefits when a symbiotic relationship is developed between the two systems. The ultimate aim of this relationship will be the creation of confidence in industry by the Institute which would result industries involving voluntarily the Institute at various stages of its development. The development of such symbiotic relationship requires, firstly, careful understanding of the industry needs such as relevant R&D, cost effectiveness, time bound programmes, technology upgradation etc. by the Institute and, in turn, understanding the capabilities and limitations of the institute by the Industry.
In keeping with the above thrust areas, following action plan has been prepared by the Institute to fulfil the aims of Industry Institute Interaction into achievements:
Recognizing the importance of industry institute interaction (III), SISTec has designed a Scheme viz. Industrial Associateship Scheme as one of the activities aimed at promotion of III. The scheme envisages an industry, organization to join the institute as an Associate Member.
