Office of Outreach and Enterprise – OOE was formed at GIK Institute in July 2010; an attempt to provide better services to its students, alumni and industry. OOE was made responsible for industry relations, alumni relations, career counseling and placement of students, fund raising and business development activities, communication and marketing. OOE was involved also to propose, plan and execute any innovative ideas or initiatives to promote the Institute’s objectives.
Later, on the directions by Higher Education Commission – HEC, OOE was converted into Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization – ORIC at GIK Institute. ORIC is operating on the same mandate with a lot more focus on Industry – Academia linkages and research collaborations.
ORIC is looking forward to connect students, graduates and alumni with region’s leading employers. ORIC plays an instrumental role of a supporting body that offers, GIK Institute research facilities, human resources, its expertise and skills to the industry for cooperative research and development projects.
GIK Institute is committed to building and nurturing lifelong relationship with its alumni and is looking forward to strengthen it further through ORIC. The office is aiming to form a mutually beneficial relationship between the Institute and alumni, wherever they are located; also by providing alumni with opportunities to ensure that they feel a part of GIK Institute for good. Working close with GIK Institute Alumni Association – GIKAA, ORIC is offering a range of services and invitations to events organized by GIK Institute.
At GIK Institute, we define the outreach as services beyond routine lecture hall and laboratory activities. We tell our students:
