Industry Connect at Avantika

Avantika is built on application-based education which will provide a holistic development of our students. The Directorate of Industry Relations is established to provide expert guidance, develop a culture of entrepreneurship, provide professional exposure and guide students beyond the academic curriculum. The objective is to infuse entrepreneurial spirit among all stakeholders harnessing the power of design and technology to solve some of the challenging global problems with profitable business models.

At Avantika, we practice the Self Development Learning System (SDLS) Methodology which empowers students to conduct various Industry connect activities for skill and empathy development. A student committee has been constituted at the campus with an objective to plan, organise and execute multiple inspirational, leadership and social service projects. The committee contributes to the entrepreneurial spirit, community welfare and developing relations with industry partners of various engagement activities. All the events are organised every Friday and fall under one of the following themes.


These are formal sessions wherein speakers from diverse industries and backgrounds share their expertise and life journey with the participants. The spark that the speaker leaves behind with the students helps them to broaden their industry perspective. These sessions are structured for the formal learning process.

The Bodhi Tree

Young and dynamic entrepreneurs or leaders are invited to informally chat and share their expertise over a casual discussion over some chai or fun activities including discussions and games. The activity is designed to encourage peer-to-peer learning through inspirational sessions.

Industrial Mind Restoration (IMR)

IMR is a platform for our learners to step out of the campus and learn by observation in a real business environment. This is facilitated by a visit to manufacturing companies, design houses or city tours. The sessions are designed for exploration of business processes, operational styles and industry practices.

Crusaders for Tomorrow

‘We rise by lifting others.’ CFT attempts to build empathy and a sense of giving back to the society at large. The students work with artisans, NGO’s, social enterprises and people at the bottom of the pyramid to create an environment of oneness. The students contribute in the form of efforts, teaching skill & building a social interaction platform.
