The Finishing School

The TVS - IIT Madras Finishing School is a joint initiative by Lakshmi Vidya Sangham, a registered non-profit society promoted by the TVS management, and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. The school was set up to address the much felt gap between the knowledge of a fresh graduate engineer and the requirements of the industry. The school will specifically address the gap between theory, practice and software skills in the field of Engineering Design and Analysis. Apart from developing students' technical proficiency, the school will also conduct programmes to hone their soft skills like communication and team building.

The TVS - IITM Finishing School will bring to a deserving section of students who demonstrate exceptional potential and leadership qualities, the expertise and experience of the best proponents of Engineering Design in the country. The school will be guided by a distinguished advisory panel comprising of the following members:

  • Ms. Shobhana Ramachandhran (Chairman)
  • Prof. R. Krishnakumar (Member)
  • Prof. S. Narayanan  (Member)
