Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE) recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Mysuru-based Automotive Axles. The MoU enables students to get practical exposure and also enables employees of Automotive Axles to take up three-year part time MBA course.
BG Sangameshwar, Vice Chancellor, JSS Science and Technology University, said, “Many students across the country, even though they study mechanical, industrial production, civil engineering and other such subjects are getting into IT jobs thus wasting their four-year dedicated education. Hence to convert that, we took up the initiative in tapping industries for practical exposure of students. This sort of MoU will not only help students to fine tune their skills but also enables the employees to take up higher studies. This is the first such initiative we have been taken up in Mysuru. In days to come, on similar lines, in other branches we will try to tap other industries.”
N Muthukumar, president and whole time director of Automotive Axles, who is also chairman of CII, Mysuru, said, “This industry and institute participation is what we are trying to nurture and develop so that lot of new innovation can be developed from the college perspective and also in the process it can give higher education for our employees as well”.
