VIJAYAWADA: To provide an industrial exposure to the students as well as for the faculty members of Information Technology, Electronics, Biotechnology and Pharmacy departments, Acharya Nagarjuna University is now joining hands with a few industries across the state and is setting up an ‘Incubation centre’ on the university premises.

The university had already sent invitations to industries in Andhra Pradesh to set up their offices and research centres in the 30,000 square feet area especially allotted for them under the AP Skill Development Mission policy, which was designed by the state government.

About seven industries have come forward to sign MoUs with the university to set up their research centres and offices on the university premises.

“With this incubation centre, the students as well as the companies will be benefited as the students and faculty members will be involved in the projects and research work taken up by the companies; the students will get industrial exposure and also gain some experience to become entrepreneurs and the companies will benefit as the students will help them complete their project and research work with their innovative ideas,” said ANU Vice-Chancellor in-charge KRS Sambasiva Rao.

Skill Development Diploma Programmes

Apart from this, in a bid to impart skill development training to graduates, the university also decided to introduce 15 skill development diploma programmes including hospital service, ambulance service, wiring, diesel pumping, petrol pumping, PCB board designing, LED light making, aquaculture training and others.

The students who have completed B Tech, B Sc, M Tech and MBA are eligible for these courses and the university will issue the notification concerned on May 22 and the last date for applying for these programmes is June 1.
