IIITS engages tightly with many IT and ECE companies with multiple objectives, for placement and internship opportunities, for research collaboration, as co-coordinators for workshops, and invited speaker participation for various technical events. The companies IIITS ties-up with are not just big MNCs but also successful startups. A team of faculty (with the Director, sometimes) visit various companies in major cities such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai. We conducted workshops in Bangalore and Chennai where we invite key speakers from various MNC and startups; we took some representative students from our institute for these workshops. Our experience shows that such workshops stimulate creative discussions among students, faculty, and industrialists leading to synergistic partnerships.

It is worth mentioning that we are constantly trying to partner with international institutions for students' mobility for internships and higher studies. We have recently secured a grant of 40000 pounds for inviting 20 UK students with 2 faculty from Edinburgh Napier University to our institute and conduct workshops. Apart from such projects, we have also represented our institute in UK vice-chancellors visit to India, exploring collaboration opportunities for our student's visit to the UK.
