During the course duration we take our students for several industrial visits. Industry interface enables students to analyze and understand the ever changing dynamics of the industry. These visits provide students with adequate exposure in tackling live problems encountered in the working of an industrial entity.
This helps them receive industrial exposure from eminent public personalities in the world of Logistics. As part of a visit, students see work in progress and relevant demonstrations. Employers also talk to the students about career paths, job opportunities, job functions, the schooling needed to enter the field and what employers look for in employees. These visits are designed to provide students with firsthand knowledge of a working environment.
The overall objective of the training sessions is to instruct students about the Logistics Industry and to familiarize them with the equipment and techniques in the respective areas.
