Presidency University has come together with Edward Food Research and Analysis Centre Ltd (Efrac) to make students industry-ready and help them land a job right after college. Efrac is an integrated testing and research centre for food and drugs.
“We have tied up with Efrac to give students an idea of industry techniques. Selected students will be given an internship and trained for research method during the summer break,” vice chancellor Anuradha Lohia said, as reported by TOI. As per Presidency, the process will be started with physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics students.
The idea is to make students competent for placement. This will also open many research opportunities globally. In the absence of a job many students are forced to do a PG. Lohia added that if they are trained by experts then one can hope that the students get good placements offers.
“Graduates have little opportunity to directly join jobs. Most of them go into research. We will provide training to students so that their skills are honed and they manage to bag a job right out of college,” said Efrac CEO Balwinder Bajwa, reports TOI.
