Encouraging faculty members to apply for projects in various Government Organisation like DST, MoES and engaging students in those project activities.

c) Practice: Continuous placement assistance: Constant communication is kept with the previous students who are not yet placed. They are invited to participate in various skill upgradation programs arranged by the institution. They are also encouragedto visit the lab facilities to upgrade their technical skill set. Students from previous batches are always informed and guided regarding the vacancies and openings for on campus as well as off campus drive.

d) Evidence: Trainings on the followings have been arranged for the students: Big Data Analytics I.O.T (Internet of things) Machine Learning Automobile Maintenance Embedded System Robotics e) Problems encountered and resource required:

i)Most common problem faced by the institution is when the students change their personal details (i.e contact number, e-mail id). Sometimes students fail to inform the department or the college authority regarding these changes as a result it becomes very hard for the organization to keep a track of such things.

ii) Students who are placed but are not satisfied with the current scenario fail to admit their situations and lack the courage to admit that they require upgradation.

iii) Focus should be on improved communication (such as using social platforms, creating groups on social media to share information) from college’s end. Faculties should also try to reach out to the students at personal level to motivate them to participate in the initiatives undertaken by the institute.
