Industrial attachment is an important component of education and training, which provides students with real practical work experience in their areas of specialization as a course requirement in most training Institutions.
The objective of Industrial attachment is mainly to link Industry and training institutions for placement of students at the work place for acquisition of practical skills and appropriate work-ethics before entering the Labour market.
