India, a developing country, is experiencing a complete change in the technological trends due to liberalization and globalization approach adapted by its government. In the view of the changes in the industrial policy of the government, it has almost become mandatory for the industries to give top most priority to the quality of their total activities in addition to the quality of their products. Quality at competitive prices is the order of the day. There is a sea change in industrial culture at present. The engineering graduates entering into such establishments must at least be aware of such culture. The onus, of course, is on the technical institutions to provide such technical personnel who can be readily accepted by the industries.
It is obvious that the greater portion of demand for the skilled labor can be met with the outputs from the technical institutions in the country. Excepting a few premiere institutions, the quality of the output from the institution, by and large, is not upto the expectations of the end users. Many of the industries have certain reservations in the basic curriculum adapted and feel that the state of art technology is not being taught. There is, in fact, an astonishing gap between what is expected out of an engineering graduate and the way he is being trained in the institutions. As a result, technical establishments are finding it difficult to get people who can satisfy their requirements. Although a lot has been said about the industry-institute interaction, what has really been done in this direction is far below the desired level.
Technological advancement taking place round the world are at such an amazing pace, it has become difficult even for the industries to accommodate those changes at the same pace. Technical institutions cannot ignore the rate at which the technological scenario is changing. Perhaps, it is now and never before, the industries and institutions in India have started realizing the fact that they can no longer live in isolation. Instead, they have to depend on each other for their growth and betterment. There is a growing feeling that the institution must become a bridge between the ever changing industry and the technology. It is also felt that the industries must remove all their apprehensions and develop understanding with the institutions to enable a meaningful interaction between the two. At the same time, the institutions must come out of their inertia and strive hard to lend a helping hand to the industries. It is important to note that the task of imparting practical training to the engineering graduates and engineering teachers is not an exclusive job of institutes alone. Industries must shift their stand from being a customer alone to institutes and become partner in the practical education of students and faculty.
To interact with R&D Organizations: With a view of producing ample number of researchers, IIPC encourages students and faculty members for participating in different evenets organised at National/International levels. It also invites researchers from different domain to share their opinion and research with all.
To develop a strong bond with Industry: IIPC encourages students to undergo Summer Internship Programs (SIP) and Industrial Case Study (ICS) with a view to get the exposure to latest trends followed by Industries.
To enhance Industrial exposure for students and faculty: Regular site visits are arranged by IIPC for the students from different engineering program to provide them an exposure for adopting innovative ways for the creation of new product implemented by the industries.
To bring about MOU’S and Agreements: IIPC attempts to attract the industrial and research organizations in the campus to showcase the strength of students by conducting National/International events, workshops, conferences, etc.
Exchange of Experts between the Institute and Industry: TGPCET encourages the its faculty members to attend the Short Term Training Program (STTP) for gaining and enhancing their knowledge and share it with the students. It also recruits the senior or retired personnel for sharing their knowledge and experience with the students.
To improve the quality of technical education to meet the needs of the industry: IIPC hosts department wise Guest Lectures in order to make students aware about the needs of industry. The Guests suggests different ways to be students for withstanding the requirements of the industry expecting from them.
The IIP Cell was established in the year under the guidance of Hon’ Mohan Gaikwad, Director GPGI, Hon’ Dr. G.K. Awari, Principal TGPCET in the year 2011 (REF. AICTE/AQIS Chapter 12 Approval Process Handbook 2013-14) (REF. RFID/IIPC (80) 2010-11 Dated 31/03/2011). Members under IIP Cell are:

Industry institute partnership cell (IIPC) under this scheme to support different industries at various platforms like Industrial training, Seminars, Symposium, and consultancy work, arrangement of different Management Development Programmes and Faculty Development Programmes for solving industrial problems.
IIP Cell of college received grant in aid from the AICTE under the IIPC Scheme. Funds to meet recurring expenditure like manpower (contractual or regular staff-provided with Honorarium), travel, administrative-overhead programs/event expenses & contingencies is Rs 5 Lakhs per year on project basis (Maximum time for a project having 5 years)and a one time grant of Rs 5 Lakhs for Officer Setup.
An Advisory board is functioning under the chairmanship of Director Academy to control its activities.
Strong Industry-Institute interface is developed through this cell.
The cell provides connectivity to the industries in areas like OJT, Projects, and helps the students in implementing their theoretical knowledge to practice.
Recognized industries like Indian Oil Corporation, Lafarge and the like get Consultancy benefits from IIPC and also undertakes activities like undergoing industrial training program at various Industries and undertake industrial projects from Govt Organizations like MSEB, BSNL , Indian Railway, DRDO , ISRO etc.
Seminars and workshops are regularly being conducted under the IIPC. The objective of such events and workshops is to provide maximum industry exposure to the students. IIP Cell has actively established strong liaisons with the various private companies and PSUs.
