Alumni Industrial Conclave

The common interaction model between academia and industry is that of producer-consumer – a relationship that has existed for long between the two sides. This relationship necessitates some collaboration as the consumer has to ensure that the output of the producer satisfies the needs to a large extent. Hence, one form of collaboration, which is more in the nature of a feedback loop, is for the industry to provide inputs back to the academic institutions regarding their perception or evaluation of their products. Thus, with an aim to foster collaboration between academia and industry, Punjab Engineering College presents PEC - INDUSTRY CONCLAVE.

To boost up the spirit of innovation, creativity and technical development, eminent experts from the industry gathered together at PEC for the PEC - Industry Conclave- 2016 from 23rd September to 25th September 2016.

The event was graced by the presence of the Chief Guest, Mr. Satish Agnihotri (CMD, Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd.), and the Guest of Honour, Mr. Arvind Bali ( Director & CEO, Videocon Telecom & Handset). The honourable Director of the Institute, Prof. Manoj K Arora, Ms. Uma Batra, Deputy Director, Mr. Manish Jindal, Registrar along with the various delegates, heads of the departments, faculty members, Phd.
