Second BW Businessworld Education Engineering Excellence Conclave saw a panel discussion on ‘Industry-Academia Collaboration towards Engineering Education Excellence’.
In the education industry, industrial exposure or collaboration is of paramountcy. In India, this collaboration of on-field experience and academia has been neglected for years and if the focus isn’t shifted towards this collaboration then India is going to have a lack of skilled workforce, professional and technical people.

The collaboration enables greater access to inter-disciplinary higher education for all students
In pursuit of empowering students by providing an inter-disciplinary and inclusive tertiary education, SRM University Amaravati, AP, has joined College Board’s India Global Higher Education Alliance, to plug skill gaps, create a future-ready workforce and nurture global leaders. Driven by global collaboration and best practices, it accepts the SAT score as part of the admission process. The consortium will support students through attractive scholarships and foster the development of Indian universities into world-class institutions.
An interdisciplinary environment that stimulates active, engaged learning and innovative research
Education is all about creating the right environment for learning. A place of academic freedom where bright minds can meet, discover, and learn. SRM AP University is such a place – an unparalleled space for living and learning. The history of the SRM group goes back to the year 1969 when SRM first made a foray into the education sector with the Nightingale School. Following the successful beginning, the group then made rapid strides with degree programs in engineering, medicine, health sciences, humanities, management, and law. By 2015, SRM had established three independent universities – in Chennai, Haryana, and Sikkim.

Q. What do you think are the sailent features of the reowned engineering programme of SRM, AP?
Our engineering programme, though only in its second year, is already recognized as a great programme and this is only because we believe in a multi-faceted and inter-disciplinary approach. We have a stellar faculty, 100% of which are Ph.Ds. with international education, teaching or industry exposure.
