The Centre of Industry Institute Partnership (CIIP) has been established to promote interaction between faculty, students and industry. The prime objective of the IIP Centre is to reduce the gap between industry expectations (practice) and academic offerings (theory) by direct involvement of industry to attain a symbiosis. The activities planned under this centre will benefit academia in terms of substantial streams of external funding, enhanced opportunities for faculty and students to work on groundbreaking research, vital inputs to keep teaching and learning on the cutting edge of a discipline, and the impact of delivering solutions for pressing global challenges. CIIP also aims to manage and protect the intellectual property rights of the University, faculty members, research scholars, students and other connected with the work, product, ideas and inventions created in connection with the activities of the University.
The core areas under the gambit of CIIP are: 1. Consultancy : To execute all Consultancy related jobs in the spirit of promoting industry interactions as a vehicle for augmenting current levels of excellence in teaching and research, and in the process, generating funds.
2. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) : To manage and protect the intellectual property rights of the University and to ensure the ‘Commercial Use’ of University’s in-house research and technology-outcomes to outside world.
3. Teaching Learning Process and Industrial R&D : To create conducive environment for active participation of industry in the teaching learning process and collaborative research.
4. Training and Placement: The efforts of CIIP in bridging the gap between industry and academia will automatically promote Training and Placement opportunities for the students of the university. To take care of Training and Placement activities in a focused manner, a separate T&P Cell already exists in the university.
