Industry on Campus(IOC)

Today’s industry looks for graduates with specific skill sets. But the higher education system is churning out graduates who fall short of the required skills. Industries prefer to get industry ready graduates when they recruit them. To facilitate and foster such a culture, it is essential that students get an exposure to industry culture while they are in the campus.

Realising the need of the industries and the long term benefit it offers to our student and faculty community, our visionary Government through G. O. (Ms) No. 257/2021/HEDN, dtd.03.05.202, took bold initiatives to set up Industry on Campus (IOC) program. This flagship program of the Government implemented in Polytechnic Colleges across the State, fosters collaboration between industries and academic institutions and has created a mutually beneficial partnership. Government also accorded administrative sanction to procure equipment to promote IOC activities. Accordingly Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) established high end industry level laboratories in the Advanced Skill Development Centres at Government Polytechnic colleges.

Introduction of the concept of IOC in technical institutes and hand holding them to initiate various industry relevant activities were done effectively by ASAP. Now Directorate of Technical Education is entrusted with the responsibility of providing all administrative, technical advices guidance and support for IOC activities.


To induce practical application and to inculcate an entrepreneurship and product innovation among the students, by giving exposure to the real industry atmosphere in the institution imbibing the spirit of ‘Earn While You Learn’.


This scheme stands as a testament to the success of "Earn while you Learn" and "Learning through Experience" concept. It improves the employability quotient of the students and facilitates their placement.
