Appendix F

Future Action Plan

  1. A Permanent Training and Placement Officer (TPO) to be employed who may have a qualification in MBA (HR) in a scale of Dy Registrar with suitable experience.
  2. Infrastructure for conducting online test is required which can be done by creating a computer lab in the department with at least 100 computers and related software.
  3. Above facility can be used as Finishing School or skill development lab. This skill development lab would include all the software which are needed by the industry but due to other constraints are not included in regular course curriculum.
  4. A proper Brochure of college in a hard copy is to be printed for invitation to companies.
  5. A proper Web site is needed for PTP preferably built and maintained by an IT professional.
  6. Focus and strengthening of Alumni data base.
  7. Soft-skills training is to be imparted on regular basis from V semester onwards.
  8. Soft-skills related courses may also be introduced in the course curriculum.

  9. Wi-Fi facility is to be created in PTP office.
  10. Expert lectures by Industry people.
  11. Technology Incubation Centres (TIC) to be started.
  12. Industry Institute Interaction Cell (IIIC) under this several workshops to be arranged for getting inputs from Industry in developing course curriculum and initiating other activities which will make students suitable for placement.
    1. MOUs to be signed with industries.
    2. Industry can suggest some new courses or contents in the existing syllabus.

  13. Presently industrial training is only for thirty (30) days after sixth semester. There is need to have min 2 months (60 days) internship. During this period students may think about an industrial project in consultation with faculty and industry fellows. This project should then be taken up in seventh semester to finish it by eighth semester. Alternatively, the last semester i.e. eighth semester should have only Industrial training or in which an industrial project/research is done.
