b. Industry Institute Interaction
Institute trains the human resource and supply technical manpower to the industries, which is very vital input for the industries. The success of the institution depends on how useful their products are to the industries. Success of industries also depends in the quality and competency of the products they take from the institutes. Since the requirements of industries are to be satisfied by the institution and industries ultimately get the benefit of efforts taken by the institution, the requirements of industries can be made clear so that the institutes can plan and implement system of education and training to meet the requirements. Any mismatch will result in loss to both; time and energy of education system will go waste and industry will fail to face competition to survive. Thus industries and institutes are to get together, for their own survival. It is therefore necessary to develop a synergic relationship between both of them. Educational institutes should take a leading role in promoting industry Institute Interaction (III) with industries, as they will gain much from such interaction.
Although many things can be done under the meaning of Interaction, mostly following are the key areas on which the mutual interaction among Industry and
Institute can be stressed upon.

12) Teachers get exposed to the operation of specialized plant and equipment, which educational institutes do not have.
13) Teachers orient themselves with the new and emerging area of technology in industries.
14) Teachers also relate theory and practical, which is needed from effective engineering education.
