Academe-Industry Linkage

The Academe – Industry Relations Office (AIRO), formerly known as the Alumni and Industrial Relations Office,
has established academe – industry linkage program in the year 2004.  The formation of the program created
strong partnerships between the University and the local, national and international leading industries in microelectronics, semiconductor, electronics, electrical, manufacturing, food processing, chemical processing, construction, transportation and communication and information technology.  It has the objective to identify activities / initiatives for mutual benefit.

The linkage is bounded with a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that both parties, the University and the industry, have reciprocal partnership through industry on-the-job training, recruitment, faculty immersion/development, career industry visitations, professorial chairs, research laboratories, thesis and projects, scholarship grants, testing and consultancy services, professional training programs, seminars, workshops and exhibits and
consultative conferences.
