University- Industry Interface

Higher technical education serves several important functions in the society, the most important being production of knowledgeable technical individuals, who will contribute to the society. However, many of the Indian universities do not fulfill this purpose. The demands of technical skilled and specialized manpower from the industry are not met as majority of technical graduates lack the necessary technical skill sets required by the industry.
Better interaction between institutions and industry has been major concern of higher education planners and academicians, the world over. Universities can enhance the value of products in the form of knowledge; industry can augment the university’s value in the form of technological inputs and related fund requirements. In India, way back in 1986, the National Policy on Education (NPE) highlighted the need for University- Industry interaction. However, despite efforts on the part of the Centre and State Governments, University-Industry interaction has not shown a significant improvement till date. Each year approximately over 3 millions technical graduates and post graduates are added to the Indian workforce. However, of these only about 25% of technical graduates and 10-15% of other graduates are consider employable by the rapidly growing enterprise in the country.

Need for University- Industry Interaction
University is an important storehouse of up-to-date and advanced level of knowledge in different fields. In a knowledge society, Industries are the main users and beneficiaries of such knowledge. Hence, what we have today is a growing skills gap, reflecting the inadequate availability of high quality college education in India and for the galloping pace of the country’s service driven economy, which is growing faster than most of the other developing countries in the world. The University-Industry Interaction is of mutual benefit as it provides Industry an opportunity for business to grow through academic inputs including consultancy. At the same time, university is in need of partners who can take the discoveries/research findings to the market place. The interaction can earn additional resources of R&D; secure training and final placements for students based on the respect earned from the relationship established with Industry. The academic knowledge base can also help in reducing industrial cost, improving quality and competitive dimensions in products, reducing dependence on foreign know-how and expenditure on internal R&D. It can also help the industry in upgrading the knowledge base of Industry professionals through management development programmed.

Hindrance:
In the backdrop of the above facts, there are some factors which hinder University-Industry Interaction. From University’s side, some of the inhibiting factors are: Lack of initiative amongst faculty towards applied research; lack of incentive to faculty; lack of experts and specialized technical infrastructure, bureaucratic hurdles in utilizing consultancy funds; etc. Whereas from Industry’s side, these factors include: insensitivity to or lack of awareness of the resource potential of the academia; a blind, herd profile professional consultants; easy availability of foreign know- how; bad experience of earlier interaction with academia, etc. Further, absence of a full time/exclusive University- Industry Interaction cells in both the University and Industry is also an important inhibiting factor.

This MOU is between Dehradun Institute of Technology, Dehradun, and Industries Association of Uttarakhand. This MOU is for the purpose of jointly enriching the technical education process and for promoting industrial advancements.
