An economically backward group of college students hailing from rural parts of Sivaganga and Ramanathapuram districts gained insights into various aspects of entrepreneurship during an industrial visit on Friday.

Courtesy the Alagappa University Study Circle, Karaikudi, and Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries' Association (TIDITSSIA), the nearly 60 students cherished the valuable exposure as a rare opportunity.

Led by Director of the Study Circle P. Suresh Kumar, the students in their final year of undergraduation representing several arts and science colleges observed the production process for the first time while on a visit to Anand Industries at Thuvakudi.


Later in the day, they visited the TIDITSSIA Office at Ariyamangalam, where they were oriented on the avenues for self-employment and entrepreneurship by the Association president N. Kanagasabapathy and S. Punniyamoorthy, Secretary.

The students were in Tiruchi on the fifth of their six-day programme that began with an orientation and skill training.

The programme will be wound up on Saturday through conduct of an interaction to reflect on the five-day activities, Mr. Suresh Kumar, who was formerly the Deputy Director of Employment, Tiruchi, said.

A few students with zeal to assimilate knowledge and skills were chosen from each of the many affiliated colleges of Alagappa University, Mr. Suresh Kumar said.


The students were being motivated in a sustained way through conduct of interactions with officials in high and respectable positions who had come up in similar circumstances as them. That way the students will be convinced of their own capabilities to progress in chosen spheres of life.

Through the Study Circle, the students were being oriented on career progression, provided guidance and counselling, and were being trained for various competitive exams, he said.
