How we Approached In-plant Training for Our Students

Our engineering college is situated in a rural area. Most of the students are from in and around our college. As part of the industrial exposure, we invite industry people to interact with students and arrange industrial visits regularly. Some students get opportunities for in-plant training. There were very few industries in our area, giving chances to only a small number of students. It was very challenging for students to get industrial exposure. Some students found it challenging to spend for travel and stay. But their interest to go for industry training was enormous.

A few years back, we found an alternative solution to in-plant training for our students, which worked well. We collected the list of famous civil engineers, electrical consultants and engineers, authorised dealers of car and bike service, big businesses in and around our area.

We decided to send our students to them for industry training during weekends and vacations. Through this, mechanical engineering students can understand the functioning of vehicles and various operations of the service industry. Similarly, civil engineering students able to get exposure in construction right from the planning phase. Sending students to electrical contractors and consultants, the electrical engineering students get exposure in their area of operations. We planned to expose computer engineering students in web designing and small computer software development for the businesses in our place.

We approached the people and explained our ideas. Almost all of them have accepted for training students. Some automobile service companies were willing to pay some stipend to our students. First, we planned to send students at least for ten days to industries so that all the students get a chance. With the support of our faculty, our computer science students developed some excellent software and websites for small business in our area.

Ultimately, One thousand five hundred students went for training for a minimum period of 10 days in that year. During that time, our civil engineering students got exposed to a highway project in our area and bridge construction by big contractors.

The accreditation team visited our college recently appreciated our model of training the students. In subsequent years, we allotted new companies for training to our students. We are adding new industries and extend our database.

We arranged this kind of training for the students who could not get in-plant training from industries. Now things have improved. It is easy to find industries, and most of them are willing as well.

It might be helpful for colleges that have similar issues.
