TIST-KITCO Employability Enhancement Program
Due to the lack of availability of skilled force, the industries’ find it hard to meet their expectations and grow further. The employability index of engineering students has been declining significantly in the recent times. Taking this into account, the department, together with the IIPC (Industry Institution Partnership Cell) wing of TIST, partnered with KITCO to launch a tailor-made course for the students, to enhance their employability.
This course concentrated more on the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air –Conditioning) module of MEP. The duration of the course was 45 days and the course fee was Rs. 25000. A total of 26 students participated in this program. It was designed with both theory and practical sessions.
The course included basic fundamental theory sessions handled by our own faculty. There were also sessions handled by eminent personalities from various industries. As part of the practical sessions, the students were sent in groups to major KITCO work sites such as Kannur International Airport Ltd. (KIAL), Cochin International Airport Ltd. (CIAL), Meat Products of India, Koothatukulam and Oushadi plant, Thrissur. As part of the completion of the program the students had to complete a project which was evaluated by the KITCO team.
