Saurashtra University (SU) is mulling over starting a bridge course for its students from the next academic year, for better connectivity with the industrial world.
Among the proposal, the university is also planning create some courses as per the requirement and recommendations of industries. There are many small-scale industries around Saurashtra which require good talent.
SU registrar (acting) Dhiren Pandya said, “We are planning practical training in industries for the students of some of its departments like electronics, Nano science and advance material, computer science, pharmaceutical science and physics. We will approach some of the industries and their associations in Rajkot, Morbi and Jamnagar and set up meetings with the deans of various departments.”
He said, “We will invite industrial experts to teach our students and request them to provide practical training to our students. SU is planning to approach the industries of Rajkot, Morbi and Jamnagar, which are famed for engineering, ball bearing, ceramic and brass manufacturing.”
Pandya said, “The courses will be designed as per the requirement of industries. We are developing the content for this bridge course and plan to approach chambers of commerce and trade bodies too. Ironically, students from universities other than SU are preferred by the local industries.”
