The department has been engaged with several industrial partners through academic projects (e.g. students’ final year group projects, CAPSTONE projects, faculty research projects, etc.). We strongly believe that the collaboration between academia and industry would benefit both and often research topics arise out of interaction between the duos. For instance, the collaboration would allow students to have exposure of working with leading engineering organisations to gather practical knowledge which would ultimately help them in their professional career. Similarly, through this relationship, the industry not only looks to academia for solutions to their concerns (through latest research in their respected areas) but at the same time, can also work closely with universities to tailor their courses to turn out graduates whose skill-set are aligned to industry requirements.
