Manipal Institute of Technology and CII Mangalore chapter organize Academia- Industry Conclave 1.0

Manipal: Manipal Institute of Technology in collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Mangalore chapter successfully organised the Academy and Industry Conclave 1.0 at Manipal recently. The conclave witnessed the esteemed presence of Industry & senior faculty members of engineering colleges from Udupi and Mangalore districts who discussed the plausible collaborations for innovative projects in the recent future. The objective of the conclave was to forge partnerships with industries for academic, research projects, start-ups, and related activities.

The conclave was inaugurated at the hands of Shri. Kurma Rao M, IAS, Deputy Commissioner, Udupi District in the presence of Shri. M Venkatesh, Managing Director, MRPL and Lt. General (Dr.) M D Venkatesh, Vice Chancellor, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, and other esteemed guests on the dais.

Dr Somashekara Bhat, Joint Director, MIT welcomed all guests and delegates, while the overview of the conclave was given by Commander (Dr.) Anil Rana, Director, MIT. Shri. Gaurav Hegde, Chairman, CII Mangalore presented the CII activities. Shri. Nagaraj V Nayak, Joint Director – DIC, Shri. Andaru Deviprasad Shetty, President – UCCI, Shri. K Prashanth Baliga, President – DSIA, Udupi and Shri Shashidhar Pai Maroor, President – KCCI presented the respective bodies they represent to the audience.

The One-Day long Conclave witnessed several activities taking place such as:

· Hackathon which was themed ‘smart roads, transports, and logistics’. Hackathon saw a total of 90 students divided across 23 teams hailing from different parts of Udupi and DK districts participating in the event.

· Interactions between start-up innovators and the relevant industries which unravelled conversations that would help start-ups provide their innovations with the best possible commercialisation techniques.

· Showcasing state-of-the-art facilities of regional engineering colleges and exploring Internship & placement opportunities for students.

· The conclave concluded with a Panel discussion that aimed to help further strengthen Academy and Industry relationship. The biggest highlight of the discussion was the unravelling of the fact that the biggest problem faced by both fields was that of a communication gap between the two. This problem could be solved by initiatives from the Industrial end to share technical and business-related challenges faced by them with the academia to develop viable solutions for the same. This panel discussion forum provided the students with an opportunity for an enriching experiential session.

Lt. Gen. (Dr) M.D Venkatesh, Vice Chancellor of Manipal Academy of Higher Education said “A mutual engagement between the industry and academia is the key to the development of all the sectors of the economy. We at MAHE have always focused on providing opportunities for our students to interact with reputed industry experts. The MIT-CII Academy Industry Conclave 1.0 is another step in this direction. We look forward to hosting similar events in the future too so that each and every student is immensely benefited.”

Cdr (Dr) Anil Rana, Director, MIT, MAHE, Manipal expressed his happiness on the success of the conclave, saying, “I express my gratitude and extend my congratulations to the entire team at MIT and CII for successfully organizing Academy and Industry Conclave 1.0. The event saw the coming together of Industry and academia paving the way for more such fruitful collaborations in the future. Events like these can help solve both technical and business challenges faced. We urge the local industries to connect with our Institute and share their challenges to find feasible solutions through mutual engagement.”
