Bangalore, Nov 22 (UNI) Institution of Engineers and Technology (IET), the leading global engineering society, is looking for partnership and collaboration to further consolidate its presence in India.
IET Chief Executive Robin McGill, speaking at a press conference here, said that with India emerging as IT hub was facing shortage of employable Engineering graduates. The need of the hour was to continuously improve the skill sets of the youth.
He said he had discussions with top Government officials and heads of IT giants including Infosys. "I am happy to get a positive response from each and every person whom I met in the government and the Corporate world. Today India has made a mark in the IT world and is all set to grow by leaps and bounds," he said.
As the global premier institution for the Engineering and Technology community, IET was creating a global knowledge network which would offer great opportunities for people to share knowledge and information, he added.
Mr McGill said that IET, which had more than 150,000 professional engineers as its members throughout the world, was eager to work with Government, Labs and R and D organisations to establish a presence and be recognised as an organisation which provides a route to access global knowledge network dedicated to engineering and technology.
He said that an International Conference on Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia Networks would be held in Mumbai on January 11 and 12.
