Objective of Industrial Training

  • Industrial training equips students with necessary skills sets, experiences and knowledge. There are number of colleges/institutes offering varied degree course in IT but enrolling in IT institute is not sufficient, it is not a promise of great career. Institutes and colleges follow definite pattern or syllabus; it could not be possible for them to revise it with each and every new discovery and development in the world. It's the students who have to toil hard, look for other options by which he/she acquired necessary skills sets to compete in the rapid changing market. A good Industrial Training institute is one of the options. It bridges the gap in academic curriculum and in the industry. It can help students to learn new technology, stay them updated with market demand, making them aware of new development and discoveries and develop skills and competencies require to become employable.
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge both are inseparable and important part of learning. Theoretical knowledge is the base of doing thing practically and it is of no use until or unless it is not practically implemented. Sitting in classroom, discussing on certain topic is entirely different thing from that practically experiencing it in real work field ie “Learning a concept” and “Implementing a concept” both are different. Industrial training provides the opportunity to implement things what they have learned in classroom, practically face all the possible real time work challenges and learn how to deal with such problem in the most efficient, logical way and at the earliest. It added valuable work experience, elevates the student's knowledge and skills in their respective field and produce graduates who are technically sharp, creative and proficient.
  • Industrial training prepares students for future employment and opens the door of endless career opportunities. Organization or industries prefer candidates who are technically qualified, well trained and have experience in working real-work environment. They don't want to spend their resources (time and money) in training or building candidates for their organization when they already have better options in the market of getting well trained qualified candidates. It also provides opportunities to students to get job in the same place where they are undergoing industrial training.
  • Industrial training exposes students to real work environment and accustoms them with organizational structure, business operation, work ethics etc. They get to know how to interact with clients, understand their expectation, real time software application, installation, configuration, testing etc which they have just studied in books.
  • In addition to imparting required skill set, it provides students work experience while they are studying their chosen subject. This is added advantages for them.
  • Industrial training provides them exposure to tools and technology used in the industry. None of the tools used in industry are the part of their academic curriculum. It also provides the opportunity to be part of the live projects which sharpen their technical skill, analytical and logical thinking and build self confidence in them.

Nowadays students are running merely to collect certificate paying no attention to their industrial training due to which there is serious lack of trained professionals with the desired skill sets in the IT industry. Students have to seriously think that where they want to see themselves in the future because certificate is no use without practical experience. During final placement the first question that is asked by the recruiter is about their industrial training and the project handled because it reflected the candidates knowledge and skills on their respective domain.

If students want to give kick start to their career where there will be endless job opportunities, joining industrial training is must not only for certificate but for practical experience. Industrial training incorporates them with the integrated learning environment blended with practical knowledge, hands on exposure and project based learning giving extra advantage to their career.
