The objective of the IIIC is to bridge the gap between industry expectations and academic offerings by direct involvement of industry, to attain a symbiosis. Better interaction between Institutions and Industry is the need of the hour. It results in equipping faculty with latest practices and makes the students industry-ready by providing exposure to current industry practices, and hones their skills to adapt to changing technologies. For students it is important because they get an exposure to industry and subsequent placement in various disciplines. On the other hand, with the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to the outside world, competition among industries has become stiff, so industries also need good resources, who are well aware of industry standards and capable of achieving it. Therefore, there is an urgent need for interaction of industry and academic institutions, by which, academic institutes can prepare students for jobs in industries and industry will also be benefited by the possibility of receiving a well-trained workforce. IIIC shall also enable the staff and students of MITS to undertake research relevant to the industry.
