Industrial visits are a crucial and important part of JD Institute’s curriculum. Therefore, industrial visits are encouraged to take place every two months. In the past year, this has not been possible due to the on-going pandemic, but this year, the Industries have slowly opened up for student and professional visits. This has provided a change in the monotonous lives of the students, and helped them see beyond their laptops and books.
