SKCET has been striving innovatively to establish Industry tie-up labs. Industry tie-up labs are established as the outcomes of collaboration with industries of high standards and reputation. Students gain knowledge and experience from these labs, which help them become industry ready by the end of their course. The Automobile Engineering Lab (SAE LAB)of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, in collaboration with industries like Roots Industries and Pricol Ltd, is one such lab in which students get opportunities to design and fabricate karts as per the company’s specifications and showcase them in various National and International arenas. The lab has received Rs. 10, 00, 000 from the industries.
