NEED OF INDUSTRIAL TRAINING :

In the present scenario, manufacturing is approaching to become more flexible, agile and efficient under the changing environment of global competition, increased product variety, high renewal rate of product and shorter product life cycle in technology. New materials and their advanced processing are evolving. Product quality and maintainability are the key issues to be addressed on priority. The pace of development in the manufacturing world, process/IT industries is very fast. In order to cope with manufacturing competitiveness and to take leadership in manufacturing and R & D, the exposure to the new technologies is essential for the young engineering professionals who have to face these challenges and carry the technologies forward. Industrial Training refers to work experience that is relevant to professional development prior to graduation.

At SLIET, Longowal Industrial Training of eight to twelve weeks is provided during the semester breaks before the beginning of per-final year. Industrial Training is an essential component in the development of the practical and professional skills required for an Engineer and an aid to prospective employment. Many employers regard this period as a chance to vet new employees for future employment. Whilst difficult, it is desirable to obtain experience in a range of activities or practices followed in modern industry. It should also be noted that developing an awareness of general workplace behavior and interpersonal skills are important objectives of the Industrial Training experience.
