Abstract: Engineering Institutions play a crucial role in society as creators and spreaders of knowledge. Knowledge which is available in our imparting institutions shall be explored rigorously to improve the system of production and quality of the products and services. While, Institutions continue to impart basic knowledge and skills, Institution-industry interaction will enable to undertake research by staff and students relevant to industry. Industrial placements have been heavily emphasized and recognized within higher Institutions prior to graduation. Currently a lot of different undergraduate and graduate Engineering programmes incorporate a period of work-based learning which is assessed as part of the formal requirements of the course. Indeed, throughout its history there has been recognition of industrial placement in term of its benefits for students, employers and the university itself. Better interaction between technical institutions and industry is the need of the hour. This study proposes a novel Special interest Group Model to improve academia-Industry relation for the improvement of placement activities in an engineering Institution.
