The last semester B.Tech students of various engineering departments at GIETU are gearing up to finish their engineering degree with industrial and technical visits. One recent visit has been that of our 6th semester B.Tech students from the Agricultural Engineering department made to OMFED Dairy Plant and CAET, OUAT Bhubaneswar.
The Orissa State Cooperative Milk Producers’ Federation Limited (OMFED) is a Dairy Cooperative Society at the state level, registered under the Cooperative Society Act of 1962. It was created to connect milk farmers in rural areas with ambitious consumers in urban areas. The main activities of OMFED are to promote, produce, procure, process, and market milk and milk products for the economic development of Orissa’s rural agricultural community.
The College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (CAET) is Bhubaneswar’s only government-funded agricultural engineering college. It has been a foreground for much agricultural research, education and extension in the field for over five decades. Their infrastructure is highly acclaimed in the state.
The students had an extremely informative industrial and technical visit. This tactical teaching method will enhance the students’ understanding of the practicalities through interaction, observing working methods and employment practices.
