About Anchor Institute Cell
Anchor Institute (Engineering & Auto), SVNIT-Surat is
supported by Industries Commissioner ate, Department
of Industries and Mines, Gujarat Government,
Gandhinagar. The wide industrial base in Gujarat state is
expected to increase significantly in near future due to
the large new investments coming in as envisaged
during Vibrant Gujarat Summits. One of the issues
arising due to this will be regarding availability of
necessary technical manpower as realized by the
Industrial Commissionerate, Government of Gujarat,
Gandhinagar, in spite of sufficient technical manpower
coming out of the academic institutions. This is due to
the fact that large fraction of the fresh graduates
coming out from ITI, Polytechnics and Degree colleges
are unemployable. The need for better quality and
skilled technical manpower is increasing and will
continue to increase in time to come.
