AICTE-CII Survey of Industry Linked Technical Institutes
"The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been conducting the Indpact Survey, i.e., a survey of industry linkages of technical institutes in partnership with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for the past seven years. The objective of the survey is to showcase best practices of industry partnerships across AICTE approved technical institutes in the streams of engineering, pharmacy, management and architecture.
Over the years, more than 3000 institutes have participated in this survey, assessed their performance and learnt where they stand vis a vis other institutes in different categories. One consistent finding of the survey has been that less than 15 per cent of the participating institutes have demonstrated high industry linkages while majority (70 per cent) are in the medium category and 15 per cent in the low industry linkages category.
Every year, industry sponsored awards are given to winners by senior government and industry officials in a glittering award ceremony. Top corporates including Tata Chemicals, Forbes Marshall, Microsoft, Infosys, Elico, Sun Pharma, Godrej, Bharat Forge and Cadila have joined hands in the past editions to give awards to the winning institutes in recognition of their strong linkages with industry."
