We believe that the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge and skills cannot happen in isolation within a university. Therefore, the Centre for Industry and International Relations has been established to develop and nurture partnerships with domestic industries and reputed universities abroad. In our partnership with the industries, we are focusing on:

Industry-collaborative degree programs.
Short-term certification courses.
Internships and Projects for our students.
Guest lectures and Faculty Development programs.
Setting up specialized high-end labs and sharing of resources.

The partnership with foreign universities aims to enable / help:

Desirous students to spend a semester abroad at the partner university.
Students enroll for a Twinning program, and complete the Degree at the partner university.
Facilitate Faculty collaboration for Research and organize Joint-conferences.
Short-duration Faculty exchange, for Guest lectures and discussions.

Industry-collaborative degree programs:

The curriculum of these degree programs is designed in consultation with our industry partners. Various credit courses, embedded in the curriculum by our industry partner, are taught by their practicing professionals, thereby sharing real-life experiences and situations. Students also get to work on the latest tools and undertake internships or complete projects under the guidance of experts from the industry. For the Academic year 2022-23, Mohan Babu University offers the following Industry-collaborative degree programs:

B. Tech - Mechanical Engineering
(Robotics and Automation)
B. Tech - Electrical and Elctronics Engineering
(EV Design)

While the Industry-collaborative degree programs extend over the entire duration of the degree program, the short-term certification program typically extend over one or two semesters. The Teaching-cum-Learning is in a blended mode, with more than 50% being delivered in an online mode. Further, these programs do not earn University credits but lead to globally acceptable Certifications of leading companies. These are undertaken in the pre-final year of the degree program, to enable the student to showcase their certified skills to the recruiting companies who normally visit the campus in the final year. We will inform the students about the various programs, by organizing information sessions in the campus.

Many industries readily offer to share their resources, available at their place, for the benefit of our faculty and students. We arrange short-term visits to such companies to get a real-life exposure to the high-technology equipment and to understand the usage and processes. In some cases, companies offer to set-up dedicated labs on our own campus, and train our faculty and staff on the usage. They, in turn, will use the labs to train our students. To highlight one of the bigger projects under such a scheme, we have 6 six labs set-up by Siemens under a APSSDC (Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation) scheme.

We have tied up with numerous companies from different industries for activities that include Guest lectures, FDPs, Industrial visits, Internships, Real-life projects, etc.

We had initiated discussions with a few well-known universities, and have already signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the ones listed below:

Asia University, Taiwan.
Cracow University of Technology, Poland.
University of Pitesti, Romania.
We are in discussion with a few more universities in USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and Malaysia, to give our students a wide choice to choose from. The following are the activities that we propose to take up:
Study abroad (one semester or one year).
Twinning programs: 2+2 at UG level and 1+1 at PG level.
Faculty Exchange program.
Joint Research and Publication.
Jointly organizing International Conferences.
