Sriram Engineering College, Perumalpattu, held the inauguration of its Industry Institute Partnership Cell and Entrepreneurship Development Cell (IIPC&EDC) on Tuesday.

S N Rangaprasad, director, MSME Development Institute (Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) delivered the inaugural address of the EDC. In his address, he stressed that better interaction between technical institutions and industries is the need of the hour.

This will have a great bearing on the engineering curriculum and subsequent placement of young graduates in industries across the country.

With the advent of globalisation, competition among industries has become stiff. To solve their engineering problems they look to engineering institutions. There is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. He explained that the Industry Institute Partnership forms an important activity for any academic institute. He explained the activities of the MSME Development Institute, its support and guidance in starting businesses.

The college signed a MoU with ALSAFA International on the occasion.

In his IIPC inaugural address, M B Mohideen, chief executive, ALSAFA International, said that to start new enterprises education alone does not help. Educational institutions should play a vital role in shaping the future entrepreneurs and such cells go a long way in this endeavour, he said, addeding that self employment alone could create new opportunities for the present generation.

Dr Nalankilli, Principal, explained the various steps, such as the MoU, R & D and consultancy, placement and training, organising seminars, workshops on technological advancements, industrial visits, and internship programmes to motivate the young engineers to become successful entrepreneurs.

Dr S Mahadevan, HoD/Mech and coordinator of the IIPC introduced the IIPC & EDC. He explained the activities and course of action and asked students to make use of the cell effectively.

J Singaravelan, HoD-EEE and co-coordinator of the EDC welcomed the gathering. The event ended with a vote of thanks given by Jayabalakrishnan.
