With this vision in mind, GITAM has embarked on a groundbreaking initiative by establishing an unprecedented Industry Advisory Board. This board aims to collaborate closely with our faculty to revolutionise engineering education.
The inaugural meeting of this illustrious Industry Advisory Board took place at the GITAM Bengaluru Campus on September 10, 2023. It was a platform for productive interactions among faculty members, students, and leading experts. These engagements facilitated structured and focused group discussions, integral to reshaping GITAM's engineering curriculum to align it with industry demands. Many leading industries demonstrated their state-of-the-art products and how students & faculty should develop knowledge to be part of the technological revolutions happening around the world.
The conclave revolved around crucial themes and discussions, encompassing emerging industry trends, potential collaboration areas, universities' pivotal role in meeting industry expectations, strategies for addressing talent shortages, and the roadmap for the future.
This convergence of technological titans and academic stalwarts signifies a transformative moment in engineering education. It underscores our steadfast dedication to producing industry-ready graduates poised to drive innovation and contribute substantially to India's thriving technology landscape.
