For this Berhampur ITI has joined hands with Odisha Sands Complex (OSCOM) of Indian Rare Earths Limited (IREL) situated at Matikhalo near Chatrapur in Ganjam district of Odisha. A MoU has been signed between the Berhampur government ITI and OSCOM for the purpose.
Speaking to The Hindu , principal of this ITI, Rajat Kumar Panigrahy said 42 students of the institute including three girls would benefit from it. While continuing their education in the Berhampur ITI, these students would also undertake nine month long industry based practical training in the OSCOM. The three girls are of electrician trade.
