IEEMA, electrical equipment makers' apex body, today said it has formed a tie-up with the Institution of Engineering and Technology Services to facilitate exchange of technical information. The tie-up would cover joint events and activities, dissemination of knowledge, and efforts to improve the state of engineering education in India, a statement said. "We believe this agreement will promote co-operation and understanding between the two organisations and will go a long way in furthering technology awareness among the general public and students of engineering," IET India Director and Country Head said.

The memorandum of understanding will make it easier for the two firms to work together to plan technical lectures and talks as well as to jointly develop programmes, activities and materials aimed at enhancing the quality of engineering education in India, he said. IEEMA Director General Sunil Misra said, "We have been actively engaged in the knowledge enrichment and skill upgradation of our stakeholder community, like the government utilities, MSME manufacturers and the academia.

"This collaboration and co-creation is the only way forward and will add significant value in our pursuit of making Indian electrical and allied industry a knowledge capital of the world."
