Industrial Visit

The term itself instils immense happiness and excitement in students. The idea of embarking on an educational trip encourages many. Industrial visits are a great source to gain practical knowledge. Students can observe and learn as to how theatrical concepts are put into action, thereby aiding their practical learning.

The objective of an industrial visit is to provide our students an insight regarding internal working of companies. With an aim to go beyond academics, industrial visits provide them with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. Visiting different companies also helps students build a good relationship with those companies.
