The Confederation of Indian Industry, Tiruchi Zone, has launched its Education Excellence Forum (EEF) constituting eight member institutions in the region. R Nandini, Chairperson, CII Southern Region Education Sub-Committee, launched the forum as part of the CII’s Southern Region Education Initiative.

As a follow-up to the EEF’s maiden launch at MAM College of Engineering, the initiative will be extended to other zones, she said. The objective of EEF is to address core components of education: faculty, student and curriculum, through the prism of industry to improve the employability quotient. A year-long activity with a top-to-bottom approach will provide tailor-made solutions and recommendations for a synergised outcome. The approach will enable students to align their learning practices with industry requirements and equip themselves to meet dynamic changes in the economy directed at reviving the nation’s growth trajectory, a CII press release said.
