CS704- Industrial Training


Duration: 6 weeks after the VI semester in the summer break, Assessment in VII semester.


For the assessment of industrial training undertaken by the students, following components are considered with their weightage.

(a)   Term work In Industry Marks allotted

  1. Attendance and General Discipline 10
  2. Daily diary Maintenance 10
  3. Initiative and participative attitude during training 10
  4. Assessment of training by Industrial Supervisor 20


(b)   Practical/Oral Examination (Viva-Voce) In Institution Marks allotted

  1. Training Report 25
  2. Seminar and cross questioning (defense) 25


Marks of various components in industry should be awarded to the students, in consultations with the

Training and Placement Officer/Faculty of Institute and I/c of training from Industry. During training students will prepare a first draft of training report in consultation with section in-charge. After training they will prepare final draft with the help of T.P.O./Faculty of the institute. Then they will present a seminar on their training and they will face viva-voce on training in the institute.


The objective of undertaking industrial training is to provide work experience so that student’s engineering knowledge is enhanced and employment prospects are improved. The student should take this course as a window to the real World of Work and should try to learn as much as possible from real life experiences by involving and interacting with industry staff. Industrial training also provides an opportunity to students to select an engineering problem and possibly an industry guide for their Major Project in final semester.

Industrial training of the students is essential to bridge the wide gap between the classroom and industrial environment. This will enrich their practical learning and they will be better equipped to integrate the practical experiences with the classroom learning process.


During industrial training students must observe following to enrich their learning:

–   Industrial environment and work culture.

–   Organisational structure and inter personal communication.

–  Machines/ equipment/ instruments – their working and specifications.

–  Product development procedures and phases.

–  Project planning, monitoring and control.

–   Quality control and assurance.

–  Maintenance system.

–   Costing system.

–   Stores and purchase systems.

–  Layout of Computer/ EDP/MIS centres.

–  Roles and responsibilities of different categories of personnel.

–   Customer services.

–  Problems related to various areas of Work etc.

Faculty and TPO are supposed to plan industrial training in such a manner that students get exposure on most of the above arena in the field (world of work). Students are supposed to acquire the knowledge on above by –

  1. Observation,
  2. Interaction with officials at the workplace
  3. Study of Literature at the workplace (e.g. User Manual, standards, maintenance schedules, etc.)
  4. “Hand’s on” experience
  5. Undertaking / assisting project work.
  6. Solving problems at the work place.
  7. Presenting a seminar.
  8. Participating in-group meeting/ discussion.
  9. Gathering primary and secondary data/ information through various sources, Storage, retrieval and analysis of the gathered data.
  10. Assisting officials and managers in their working.
  11. Undertaking a short action research work.
  12. Consulting current technical journals and periodicals in the library.
  13. Discussions with peers.


The industrial training programme, which is spread to 6 weeks’ duration, has to be designed in consultation with the authorities of the work place, keeping in view the need of the contents. Following are some of the salient points:

□     Spelling out the objectives of the industrial training in behavioral terms and same is informed in advance to the 1) students, 2) authorities of the work place and 3) supervising faculty members.

□    Discussing and preparing students for the training for which meetings with the students has to be planned.

□    Meeting with industrial personnel and orienting them regarding the objective of the training and the expectations of the programme.

□    Correspondence with the authorities of the work place.

□    Orientation classes for students on how to make the training most beneficial – monitoring daily diary, writing weekly reports, how to interact with various categories of industrial personnel, how to behave and undertake responsibilities, how to gather information from the workplace, ethics etc.

□    Guiding students to make individual plans (week wise/ day wise) to undertake industrial training

□    Developing a system of maintaining training records, by teachers for every batch of students for

convenient retrieval.

□   Inviting industrial personnel to deliver lectures on some aspects of training.
