SEECS Industry Linkages
On the domestic front, SEECS has been quite successful, as one of the pioneers, in knitting industry and academia into a meaningful partnership and working in tandem on several practical ideas for the mutual benefit. This has helped them jointly propel the dormant conditions of our technology and engineering education centers. SEECS-Corporate Advisory Council that meets biannually to exchange views with industry representatives is gradually evolving into a vibrant forum of close interaction. This has greatly facilitated the two sides to share very valuable inputs from each other and devise improved strategies to achieve the goals of academia-industry partnership. SEECS industry linkages have recently been extended overseas and a handful o projects have already been commenced in collaboration with US companies.
Corporate Advisory Council
University-Industry partnership is one of the key imperatives to promote economic activity and prosperity at grassroots level. As the providers of trained and skilled human resource to the industry, universities need to play an active role in building associations with mercantile entrepreneurs so as to ensure optimal utilization of best available human capital. This was the prime objective of establishing SEECS Corporate Advisory Council (CAC). From a mere concept in 2006, CAC became a vibrant reality. Thanks to the cooperation and support of our industrial entrepreneurs, SEECS Corporate Advisory Council is increasingly engaged in building sound academia-industry linkages and fueling much needed interaction. In fact, we have to go a long way in further strengthening this forum by fostering continued interactive, vibrant and capable of promoting understanding, harmony and tangible cooperation between academia and industry.
