  • Establish and maintain cordial relationship with Industries, by which intend to develop knowledge transformation between corporate and students, also to meet corporate expectations.
  • Providing career counselling to the students and to organize recruitment programs that match their skill sets.

Well-Grounded Mentor-Mentee Relationship

In order for a mentor to properly mentor his/her mentee, their skill sets and the quality of mentoring has to be improved consistently. For this, KRCT conducts various training programs using internal and external experts. Also, the Institute informs the faculty members about the contests organized by various top corporate parties and encourages the team to effectively utilize these opportunities. These opportunities further help the faculty team to establish and maintain cordial relationships with Industries. This thereby facilitates in knowledge transformation between corporate and faculty, which then filters down to the students, thus enabling students to have a taste of what the corporate world expects from them.

KRCT enables knowledge sharing among the students and faculties through recent technologies like E-Curricula in teaching learning process in the campus.

This makes the class room environment more interesting and interactive. Besides, all the departments are well equipped with Research labs like E-Yentra Lab, National Instruments Lab, IOT Lab, PTC Lab, Automobile Lab, 3D Printing Lab, NDT Lab, and Tig and Mig welding Lab. These labs help the students to gain expertise in software and other skills so as to compete in the job market. KRCT stands a class apart from its peers by opening the pathway for creation of knowledge-based innovative hi-tech ventures, Industries, and new breed of technopreneurs. “Our institute helps students to make out a thriving career in companies like I-nautix, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro technologies, L&T InfoTech, Infosys, Mold Master Technologies, Kochar InfoTech, and many more companies. KRCT aims at seeing every first year student to become a flourishing engineer by implementing e curricula and e lab. Student’s achievements have made our institute to stand unique from other institutes in India,” says Dr. S. Muruganandam, Principal, K.Ramakrishnan College of Technology.
