At Symbiosis Skills & Open University (SSOU), our focus has always been achieving alignment with the industry. Right from identifying the sectors where manpower requirement is more to designing the right curriculum, from setting up industry laboratories to training from industry experts – we make sure that industry walks along the academics at SSOU!
To extend it further, we had invited industry experts to counsel the students. We had representatives from companies that are not only our industry partners but also the ones that are keen to work closely with specific programs that SSOU offers. We had Mr. Prashant Pednekar from SKF, Mr. Satish Gaikwad from Jaguar Land Rover, Mr. Kapil from CREDAI, Mr. Ghatpande from Nyati Developers, Mr. Mihir Parmani from Coca Cola, Ms. Suvarna Gugale from Rajasthan Beauty Parlor, Mr. Manish from Future Group, Ms. Sneha from Enrich Salon, Mr. Iyer from Abhi Logistics and Captain Badamikar from Triumph. We also had Ex-India Navy Mr. Ashok Soman join the industry representatives.
Students received good insights into the sectors including automobile, infrastructure, mechatronics, logistics, ports and beauty wellness from the experts in separate sessions conducted in batches. In fact, experts informed them about the job roles and salaries students can expect post completion of respective programs. More than that, every expert showcased the current industry scenario to help students make the right decision.
The counselling session was followed by the campus tour covering workshops, laboratories, hostels etc. by the SSOU team.
