Nature of the Activity :
Local Industrial Visit to three industries located at Baikampady Industrial Area, Mangaluru.
1. Das Metal Works
2. Shakti Tools
3. Mayur Industries and Mangalore Safety Glass
Objectives of the visit :
To widen the horizons of the students by backing them with a practical exposure through the visit.
To bridge the gap between theoretical training and practical learning in a real-life environment.
To provide a deep insight on internal working, operations, processes involved in the industry and also facilitate interaction with the officials concerned.
Description of the visit :
Mere learning from textbooks and lectures does not suffice for holistic learning. Practical, hands-on learning is essential for better understanding of work processes and business functions. Therefore, as an integral part of the curriculum, also with an aim to go beyond academics and classroom learning, the students of BBA inclusive of first, second and final years got an opportunity to visit three local industries located in Baikampady Industrial area viz., Das Metal Works, Shakti Tools and Mayur Industries and Mangalore Safety Glass, on Monday, October 1, 2018 in the afternoon post lunch session.
On reaching the doorstep of the industry, the students and the faculties were well received by the proprietor and the employees. During their visit to these three different industries, they were briefed about the industrial background, its functioning, operations, processes involved, employment related details and so on… The kind gesture and pleasing hospitality extended by the proprietor and the employees of the Industries is worth to be appreciated. Light refreshments too were served to all of us.
Outcome of the visit :
The industrial visit truly added practical value to the student’s theoretical formal learning within the classroom. It also ensured that students are all in touch with the practicalities of real industrial working which usually differs from what they actually have learnt. The students also had a meaningful interaction with the officials of the industry. Overall it was educational in nature with rich learning experience.
This activity served to achieve the core values of fostering global competency amongst the students.
About 70 students visited the industries. Ms. Priyanka, faculty of the department, coordinated the visit and she was accompanied by other faculties viz., Prof. Pushpalatha, Mrs. Laxmi Hegde and Mr. Hardik P. Chauhan.
