The academic / industry interface of I²IT with respect to the academic and research programs has enabled us to create vital links with some major players in the technology industry to drive innovation in the years to come.
The industry academia association of the Institute is a valuable channel between pure technology research and real world scenarios, bringing academic research closer to the students studying at our Institute.
