INDUSTRY RELATIONS

An ongoing interaction between the Industry and Institute is an essential one. To strengthen the relationship between industry and our institute, the Industry-Institution Interaction Cell was established in the year 2012 which provides an excellent platform for both the students as well as the faculty members to be aware of industry expectations from the graduates. IIIC (Industry Institute Interaction Cell) serves as a podium to showcase the best practices, latest technologies in industry stand point and their implementation.

Better interaction between Technical institutions and industry is the need of the hour. The exposure that the students will get will have an immediate effect on the subsequent placement of these young graduating engineers in various industries across the globe. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to the outside world, there is stiff competition.

This cell aims at bridging this gap between industry and the academic institution. IIIC serves as a podium to showcase the best practices, latest technologies emerging in industries and implementation.

Also, IIIC promotes industry experts to continuously partake in curriculum design and career development programs which play a significant role in honing the skill set of the students. Towards up scaling the academia in the Global knowledge index, ample industrial exposure is provided to the faculty members to enhance the Teaching Learning Process and enable the Institution to produce quality students in turn.

Our students also take part in various industry related contests, both nationally and internationally. Our students have won many laurels in Hackathons, Coding contests.

Club members conducts workshops and events on new technologies that's buzzing around the world and includes off campus and campus hour meetings. The members of the club were divided into respective domains and each member should be part of at least one domain and work for that respective domain. The basic domains include Big data analytics, Internet of Things, Ethical hacking, Web Development, Android Development, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning.

Everyone in Coding Club is part of a team and help each other to solve real world problems, so that they could improve their skills like team work, management, coding etc. Members of the club need to finish their work either from available resources on internet or developing their own idea from scratch. Since the formation of this club, many innovative projects such as Sathyabama TBI website, Sathyabama cultural website, Android app for outside shop were developed. We do webinars through Skype once in every two weeks and it serves as a great platform for the students to clarify their doubts and implement new ideas.
