PUNE: In an endeavor to create skilled Civil Engineers, CREDAI Pune Metro signed an MoU with Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT) Pune. To make them industry-ready, CREDAI will be working towards imparting the students with skill-based practical and on-site training.  The MOU was signed by Ranjit Naiknavare – President of CREDAI Pune Metro and Bharat Agarwal- Managing Trustee of VIIT Pune at CREDAI Pune Metro office, Nucleus Mall, Camp, Pune. The initiative is jointly undertaken by CREDAI Pune Metro, the Team of CREDAI Kushal, led by Kapil Trimal.

Speaking during the signing of the MOU, Ranjit Naiknavare said, ” The real estate sector in Pune has been on the rise for the last few years and we see the trend continuing for years to come. To be able to cater to this rise, we need skilled industry-ready engineers. Pune produces several Civil Engineers however, they are not well versed with the practical skills required to work on a project site, despite some of them undertaking internships.

To bridge this industry-academia gap, we have created this unique upskilling program to provide the Civil Engineering students of VIIT-Pune a 360-degree comprehensive training program aimed at providing practical skills required for on-the-job implementation. We are glad to have signed an MOU to this effect with a prestigious institute like VIIT Pune.”

Under the MOU, civil engineering students will be able to get hands-on training from the first year of the degree. The training program can be completed by students in 5 semesters. It will involve 200 hours of onsite training wherein CREDAI team members will impart comprehensive knowledge covering all practical aspects of working on a construction site.” he added further.

Expressing his joy about associating with CREDAI, Bharat Agarwal said, “There has been a lot of talk over the need for industry and academia to work together, but no one has implemented the same in Civil Engineering. This is the first such attempt in the country and we are happy to associate with CREDAI to take this forward as the onsite practical training for Civil Engineering students is crucial for their future and the progress of the real estate sector as well”.

Adding further he said, “We believe this initiative will create an ecosystem that accommodates innovators as their theoretical knowledge will be complemented with onsite skill development. The mark sheets of students will also have a mention of the completion of the training.”
