FICCI FLO, the women’s wing of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Anna University to train 1,500 women students to help them easily adapt to the work-related demands of the industry.

The initiative titled “Campus to Corporate Skilling Programme” will train 1,500 students from 19 engineering colleges, of which 16 are from Tier II and Tier III cities.

Prasanna Vasanadu, chairperson, FICCI FLO Chennai, said the industry leaders want industry-ready engineers and this upskilling programme will facilitate a smooth transition for students from their campus environment to the corporate set up.

Anna University Vice-Chanellor R. Velraj expressed the hope that the training would benefit the students by helping them address the gaps identified in transitioning from colleges to workplace.
