D4E Network in Chennai launches an app for industries and students to interact
Colleges, students, faculty, government bodies, industries, experts and trade bodies can use this app to network professionally
From field visits to recruitment, all is just one swipe away. D4E Network India Pvt Ltd on Tuesday launched an app that can be used by industries, engineers, students and related stakeholders to communicate freely among themselves. The app will act like a social media for people in the field of engineering, said KE Raghunathan, founder of the application.
Claiming that the IT boom was reaching a saturation of employment, he said that industries are looking for engineers with more and more niche skills. This app aims to provide a platform for such companies to find the right engineers and for skilled engineers to find industries that will hone their skills. The app can also be used between industries to find the right suppliers and right experts.
One will have to sign up into the app with an email ID and purchase a membership into the D4E club which will give them access to 19 services including mentor requirements, jobs, internships, purchase requirements, government notifications, project ideas, start-up support and product testing.
Colleges, students, faculty, government bodies, industries, experts and trade bodies can use this app to network professionally. The app was launched at Anna University by Tamil Nadu governor Banwarilal Purohit. Claiming that there will be a tremendous demand for the app, Purohit said, This app will not only boost employment, it will also help propagate technology through the country. The Vice-Chancellor of Anna University, during the launch ceremony, said that the app would provide a constant platform for industrialists and students to network. The expos and conclaves that colleges organise cost a lot and lead to only limited interaction.
However, this app will bridge that gap and provide a constant platform for knowledge exchange. This app will also help students stay updated about the market environment and requirements, said Anil Sahasrabuddhe, chairman of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). We are always wondering how to update the syllabus so frequently to ensure that students are prepared to dive into the market. This app will prepare them to understand the industry standards and the specialised needs in the market in the real world, he said.
