A collaborating organization is an organization that helps the Institute in setting up the necessary facilities and in the running of classes and laboratories for all students. Such an organization may simultaneously be also a sponsoring organization.
A sponsoring organization is an organization, which fulfills one or more of the following features:
- The organization is the employer of the student and pays fully / partly the fees/dues of the student and also provides facilities required for the learning process.
- The organization is an employer of the student but does not pay the fees/dues of the student. Nonetheless the organization agrees to encourage and actively participate in the special nature of the educational process for the mutual benefit of the organization and the employee.
An associate student is one who is allowed to register in any of the courses offered in each semester with an ultimate goal of obtaining a diploma/degree or without any such ambition. The treatment of these students will be different from that of the casual students in that these students will be registered on credit and not on audit basis and may be admitted for a degree or a diploma, if situation so warrants. Further, admission procedure and the fee structure may also differ in contrast to the casual students. Presently the Institute considers only sponsored candidates from structured collaborative programmes for Admission as Associate Student.
