Located on the outskirts of Mumbai, Vashi, Navi Mumbai, Institution of Industrial Design & Technology(IIDT) was established with a vision of giving practical approach to engineering studies, which usually is not provided by any engineering collages and institutions. From the day of its inception, IIDT is focused on matching the current day industrial requirements with the course that they are offering to the students. "For placing the right talent to the companies that visit our college campus, we found this approach as the best one. We usually tailor our course content based on the industry trends and updates, technical requirements that they come up with. Sticking on this methodology, we have been able to register a very good placement record. Apart from the course study, we also help the students to work on their resume, and prepare them by taking mock interviews," says Ashish Thorat, Founder & CEO, IIDT and Sharv Technologies.

Offering NDT certification courses in three levels, level I for beginners (8th standard candidates to 12th standard candidates),level II for professionals (HSC/diploma/degree engineering professionals) and level III for experts (with at least 3 years of NDT industry experience), IIDT has incorporated these courses along with CSWIP(Certification Scheme for Welding Inspection Personnel) Welding Inspector, AWS (American Welding Society) Welding Inspector, API (American Petroleum Institute)Certification, HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning)

More over, we are also planning to use augmented reality tools for demonstrating lessons to students in a better way, where they can visualize real scenario effortlessly. Being the CEO of SHARV Technologies(parent company of IIDT) is helping to do so,"explains Ashish.

IIDT is an ISO 9001: 2015 certified company, where the faculties have 8+ years industrial experience. They impart scrupulous knowledge adhering to the international codes and standard. "We have simplified solution, so that students can acquire skills to work for any company. Recently, Rehan Shah, a mechanical draughtsman and HSC qualified candidate, came to me looking for job based training. While going through his profile, I could only offer him a three days training, involving industry relevant technical questions, mock interview, and presentation. The training helped him to build a proper resume. At the same time, I connected him with Mc Clelland India, Navi Mumbai based incinerator manufacturer supplier that was working on waste management and recycling system design project. They accepted him happily after carrying out a tough interview round. Rehan got an offer of 1.6 lpa there. Within two months of his joining, he opted for advanced level training at IIDT. Now, Rehan's employer is pleased with his work,"asserts Ashish.

The IIDT team guarantees streamlined consulting services whenever a client visits them. "Having 80+ clients at PAN India location, we work as an outsourcing agency and complete the engineering works. When it comes to training the students, we furnish the students' with domain expertise and then check their competencies during internship, either at IIDT or with our client companies. We received Whistling Woods International Jio VR Knowledge Series 2019 award, powered by VAMRR Technologies," explains Ashish. IIDT has made learning for product design and developments to not only get a job, but also to make students able entrepreneurs by instilling skills on creating their own stream of products.
