3. Get Connected with Industry and Ecosystem!
Traditionally, colleges invite industry experts to their college campus to talk to students. Such talks (given to a large group of students) last for 1 or 2 hours and then mostly forgotten, because students cannot stay in touch with those experts after the seminar/workshop is over. It is mostly a formality which does not add much to the industry readiness of students.
Your Official Intra College Portal is also a great tool to connect with Industry Experts and representatives from Corporate Organizations. Apart from providing you the portal facility, we are also continuously working towards expanding our 'iBranch Hub', a network of Corporate organizations & Industry experts, and we allow them to get directly connected on a long-term basis with our client colleges for Knowledge Sharing, Projects, Internships, Seminars, Workshops etc. This ensures that the students of our client colleges get high quality & long-term exposure to the corporate domain, making them Industry Ready
