23/06/2016 – CII Mentorship Programme for Higher Education
23 May 2016
Dear Sir / Madam,
As you would be aware, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been conducting the Indpact Survey, i.e., a survey of industry linkages of technical institutes in partnership with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for the past four years with the objective of mapping the extent and depth of these linkages in India. Over the years, more than 3000 institutes have participated in this survey, assessed their performance and learnt where they stand vis a vis other institutes in different categories. One consistent finding of the survey has been that less than 15 per cent of the participating institutes have demonstrated high industry linkages while majority (70 per cent) falling in the medium category and 15 per cent in the low industry linkages category.
To help these 85 per cent institutes improve their performance and also the employability of their students, CII has started a mentorship programme to provide guidance and support to students, faculty and academic leaders. The CII Mentorship Programme for Higher Education was launched at the ‘Global Exhibition on Services’ on 21st April. The programme offers courses for faculty and students at subsidised rates and more courses are in the process of being added.
