Bangalore, Nov 22 (UNI) Institution of Engineers and Technology (IET), a leading global engineering society, is looking for partnership and collaboration to further consolidate its presence in the country.
Addressing a press conference here, IET Chief Executive Robin McGill said with India emerging as IT hub, it 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''.
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 said.
Mr McGill said IET, which had more than 1,50,000 professional engineers as its members across 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 an 'International Conference' on wireless, mobile and multi-media networks would be held in Mumbai from January 11 and 12.
