The type of training to be undergone by the student depends on his/her Engineering Discipline. It is oriented towards exposing them to an industrial environment with a view to gain comprehensive knowledge of work places, work processes, safety at work and develop desirable attitudes towards work.

Industrial training unit coordinates registering of students with National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) before going through the training program. NAITA is the National body for coordinating Industrial Training. This will include program to orientate students for Industrial environment and registering the students at NAITA before going to respective industries. After commencement of Industrial training ITU will monitor the progress of students by visits to industries to monitor the progress of training.
