Dr. C.M. Vara Prasad, Director, Research Centre has summed up the deliberations of the day.

He expressed that it is gratifying to note that there is overwhelming response from the Industry for the invitation as more than 25 professionals representing 20 organisations have taken part in the Meet.

In summing up the proceedings, he brought out the following view points expresses by the visitors.

• It is generally felt that there is a kind of miss-match between the needs of the Industries and the academics of the Institute as the Industry’s projects are time-bound, Result-Oriented with short-time frames where as the Institutes are constrained to follow the time frame/schedules prescribed by the affiliating Universities.
The Industry-Institute-Interaction Meets such as the one organised are important and the efforts of the Institute are appreciable in taking the lead and it should be continued to achieve tangible results by the collaborative efforts of faculty and Industry in exchanging their views at regular intervals.

• The Institutes are advised to inculcate positive thinking in students to boost up the confidence levels and they should be given sound concepts in basics, made to apply the concepts, system level approach to be adopted in learning process and the students are to be trained to have adoptability to working conditions of the Industry.

• It was suggested that a website may be created for the Research Centre of the college.

• A few organisations offered projects to be taken up in the fields of

- Wireless technology
- Non-destructive testing techniques
