An industrial visit to remember –Students from PSG College of Technology visit AgilizTech

University is like a sculptor’s studio, where students are modeled and chiseled, gaining professional knowledge. But the knowledge there is mostly theoretical. Sure, they know the ‘what’, but the ‘how’ is learnt in the real-world. It is in the industry that a newly minted professional puts their theories to test. 

 What today’s students need is a stepping stone as they crossover from being a student to a professional. As John Keats wisely said, “Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced”. AgilizTech recognizes this a gap, and hence conducted a one-day industrial visit for the students of PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, on February 4, 2019. With an aim to go beyond academics, this industrial visit provided students a practical perspective on the world of work, an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, and an exposure to current work practices. 

A day of observation, interaction and learning

The event kick-started with a briefing on the nature and purpose of the visit. This included a short introduction on AgilizTech by Sujeeth Shetty, VP – Business Development, AgilizTech.  

Next, V Ganesh Babu, MD and CEO narrated the AgilizTech journey, spoke about his experiences and touched upon today’s IT trends.  

Following this, Anand Gangoor, Senior Technical Delivery Manager, AgilizTech, talked about the various teams that work together to develop a software application. He also explained the same with a practical example . 

The students were divided into batches of 20 each. Each batch moved around the office for interacting with the various teams and understanding how they operate. While one batch was visiting the work area, the rest had an open Q&A session with  Anand and Sujeeth, clarifiying their doubts about how the industry operates and what it takes to plunge into entrepreneurship. 

 To propel students into thinking mode, a Logical Puzzle solving contest was handled by Thomas Linson, Senior Software Engineer, AgilizTech. A fun way to learn more about IT, the students showed keen interest and actively solved the puzzles given to them. 

    

During the visit, the students also visited our photo booth to capture memories of the visit.  

Student Speak

The students were delighted with the visit. Here’s a brief feedback we received: 

We had a great time at AgilizTech and the reason was most of the time it was an interactive session. We got an overall view regarding startups as well as the difficulties to be faced by an Engineer. The main thing we appreciate about AgilizTech was the way you encouraged the volunteers which boosted everyone’s confidence.  

The effort you made for us was really unbelievable such as arranging refreshments and meeting halls , Social media photo frame etc. Finally, the entire team interacted with us with no hesitation and with full enthusiasm. Students completely enjoyed the game you organized for them. Faculties were satisfied with the Group Discussion session which helped everyone explore and exchange views. Thanks for the entire team for your work and making our visit a memorable experience. 

A visit to remember and ponder on

According to recent surveys, one of the biggest causes of concern across industries has been the skill-gap prevailing across our country. Conducting such industrial visits offers students the opportunity to learn more about the industry and sharpen their skill sets accordingly.  

We were happy to help ignite young minds by giving more exposure into the real world of Information Technology, and we would be glad to conduct many more such events.
