Academia and industry relationship

Industry-Academia Collaboration:

Academia and industry share a symbiotic relationship. Industry should frankly and honestly talk with academia based on logical thinking and scientific background, which would be helpful to close engagement with academia. Academia produces graduates who are absorbed by industry. Research work in universities are taken up by the industry and turned into products and services. Industry on the other hand looks to academia for solutions to their concerns.At the technology level, there is a need for solution architects, database analysts, developers with domain knowledge and expertise on contemporary geospatial technology. It would like universities to tailor their courses to turn out graduates whose skill-set are aligned to industry requirements. Often new research topics arise out of interaction between the duos which benefit both academia and industry. The latter therefore funds focused research in universities which they can operationalize. This may include setting up laboratories, designating industry chairs, and providing guest faculty and placement opportunities. Industry entails all these facilitators and more because it is a multi-disciplinary field which requires geographers, computer scientists, environmental scientists, social scientists, and domain and management experts.Last but not least, project management skills top the skill-set.” Industry can participate in collaboration with academia through Train the Trainer programmes, course curriculum review, internship for students, technology updates, support in establishing laboratories and research projects.

Our ISAPS certification courses are designed in such a manner that all gaps existing between Academia and Industry would be reduced and technically and socially skilled students are provided to industry for betterment of society.
