Our Entrepreneurship Cell tries their level best to sow the seeds in this regard through successful entrepreneurs and very encouraging response from the Students is seen for the same. As a result, some of the students have established their own businesses and are well settled.
In the present era of globalization, close and long -term association with the Industry, Research, Patents, Consultancy, Entrepreneurships, MoUs, Certifications, Accreditations, Faculty Development Programs, live Projects and High Academic performance of the students are of paramount importance to any reputed Technical Institute.
Accordingly, MIT Pune is working very closely with the Industry and other experts on a long term basis to give an extra edge to our students, as detailed below:
Collaborations with Industry
Thirty one Multi-National and 'Fortune 500' Companies have signed Collaboration Agreements with MIT,Pune to offer live/high tech projects and imparting practical orientation / Internships to the students and faculty, thus shaping future of the graduates.
Innovation Center / Centers of Excellence
Creativity & Innovations are soul of Engineering Technology. Keeping this in mind, world known MNCs such as Amdocs, IBM, M&M and Nvidia have set up their Centers of Excellence / Innovation Labs right on our Campus, to encourage and nurture the Innovative sprit of our Students and Faculty.
Internships / Live Projects
Thanks to the excellent association MIT, Pune enjoys with the Industry, Practical exposure to best industrial practices, opportunities are available to the students, to give them that extra edge as per over other normal students.
Besides the high academic standards, Students need to be properly groomed systematically, to equip them well to face the Campus Recruitment Processes confidently. They are required to be trained and tailored as per the requirement of the current Industry expectations. Accordingly, we train and mold the Students with the help of professionals / Industry experts, in Aptitude Tests, Soft-skills / Group Discussions / Interview Techniques and Personality Development.
National Level Competitions
Moreover, National level Competitions are held by some of the top corporates / MNCs, to show-case the talent of the Students and increase their level of confidence. These meritorious Students receive very prestigious awards along with hand-some monetary packages given out by Companies.
Technical Workshops / Seminars / Faculty Development Programs
Several Faculty Development Programs / Technical workshops / Seminars / Guest lectures by experts in respective fields are organized, during which Faculty & Students develop their skills of presentation and get an opportunity to understand the theoretical knowledge acquired during the academic curriculum and its relevance in the practical field, along with exposure to the latest technologies.
The department plays role as a catalyst in organizing number of local, as well as long Industrial tours, to give first hand exposure to the Students on best Industrial practices.
MIT, Pune is running an Industry oriented unique 'Sandwich course' in the discipline of Mechanical Engineering for only few selected Students, which helps them in blending of Theoretical and Practical knowledge where by, their potential of employability and Entrepreneurship is enhanced and therefore they are in maximum demand.
Ideally, the sole aim of any Technical Institute is not only to increase the 'employability' of Technical graduates, but also to produce Entrepreneurs. Accordingly, sufficient stress is given in injecting the seeds of the Entrepreneurship in the minds of the budding engineers. Therefore we have established a separate Entrepreneurship Cell to nurture this activity. Numbers of Workshops are organized from time to time on the subject and successful Entrepreneurs keep presenting their success stories etc. All these case studies have a wonderful impact on the minds of the Students and as a result, some of the Students have even established their own businesses and are well settled. We have also signed MoU with an internationally known organization- 'National Entrepreneurship Network', with whose help various counseling sessions are organized for the Students delivered by successful Entrepreneurs.
Career Guidance / Higher Education / Competitive Examinations
Some of the Students feel that single Engineering Degree may not be adequate now a days for their future Career. Therefore, they plan to pursue P.G. and doctorate programs in Engineering as well as Management. Accordingly, Guidance/ Counseling is offered to the pre-final and final year Students to educate and encourage them to opt for Post-graduation / Doctoral Programs in various disciplines in India as well as abroad. Also, various related Seminars and Counseling Programs are organized. We also do organize regularly the guiding and counseling sessions for the Students to prepare them for GRE / GMAT / TOEFL / GATE etc., which helps them to get admission in various well known Universities across the world.
All India Competitive Examinations (UPSC / MPSC)
Moreover, in the present highly competitive era, UPSC / MPSC examinations seem to be other, but very challenging options before the Students. It has been observed that day by day more and more Students are getting inclined towards these examinations and some have even proved their excellent talent by getting good All India Rankings. For encouraging and guiding such Students in this aspect, we have established a separate cell- "MIT Civil Services Training Institute" (MITCSTI), which has been receiving growing and Overwhelming response, benefitting all the aspirants.
