Going beyond classrooms

Industrial Visit

The annual industrial visit is one of the highlights of the academic curriculum of the BBM department of PES Institute of Technology.

Over 80 students from the department went for an industrial tour recently, which benefited them highly. It helped them relate classroom learning to real world scenarios.

The places the students visited were a combination of manufacturing and food
processing industries in Chennai, Cochin and Munnar.

They started their tour on February 21 with over 80 students accompanied by Badrinath, Dinesh and Priya Vaz, the faculty members.  The first destination was Chennai, one of the leading automobile manufacturing sectors.

The team visited L&T’s specialised tyre manufacturing unit there, which manufactures tyres for heavy machinery and defence-oriented projects.

They then left for Cochin, where they we visited ‘KKR Nirapana Group of Companies’, a food processing unit. Here, they were exposed to the processes involved in frozen food technology.

The students were also informed about the various types of Government certifications like ISO 9000 and CFTRI given to industries. They also had an interactive session with the head of the company who gave an insight into the export activities of the company, which exports goods mainly to Gulf countries.

The next day the students left for Munnar which was a welcome change from the hot humid weather of Cochin and Chennai.  They visited ‘Kannan Devan Tea Estate’, owned by the Tata Group, and watched the complete process involved, right from plantation to packaging the product.

There was much to enjoy for them at the tea estate under the serene ambience of nature. On the last day, the students organised a campfire in the night and showcased their talents in various activities like dancing, singing and acting.

 It was truly a perfect end to a memorable trip. The industries they visited, the places they saw and the good time they spent in the company of friends left an indelible mark in their minds.
