INDUSTRY CONCLAVE 2021-22
The pace of change is accelerating. The median age of India's population was listed at 26.8 years old in 2020 with 45.9% of them found highly employable. With a population of 1.38 billion citizens, more than half the population is estimated to be below 26 years of age. This statistic is a reflection of the competition for employment in every industry (India Skill Report 2021). Competition for the right talent is fierce.
The Department of ISE hosts every year an “Industry Conclave” to promote the industry-academic collaboration and generate new ideas for constructive partnerships. The conclave gives opportunities for faculty and students to interact with industry bodies focussed on exposing the key innovation and research activities to relevant stakeholders.
We the academicians understand to implement the change with the agility of our ambition and we are aware of what needs to be done, and what we want to prove a zeal for innovation by interacting with industry experts and adopt required changes in the curriculum and training needs, which in turn helps to shape the future workforce.
