The Engineering Education Summit was organized to provide a platform fo the industry and academia to share mutual expectations and debate ways of collaboration, with particular focus on aligning academic research activities to the R&D needs of the industries.
The summit was inaugurated by Prof. Bhaskar Ramamurthi, director, IIT Madras and was a series of panle discussions with significant participation from the faculty of IIT Madras, other engineering institutes in and around Chennai and industry leaders from IIT Alumni.
There were three representatives from each of the Partner Institutes (PIs) and some non-PIs. We discovered the expectations of the Partner Institutes, and the Industry and academia. The resources that are available in public domain, and ones which can be done on request and case to case basis were explored. Helped to include the industry visits for faculty, department visits for faculty and the IIT outreach programs in this academic year.
