Industrial Exposure Training (IET) is a unique element of SRM IST assisting in the refinement
and polishing of the personality qualities that the industry seeks in students once they complete
their degree. The programme is provided in the third or fourth semester for a period of
4 months, seamlessly integrated into the curriculum, strengthening their conviction in having
selected the appropriate career in the hospitality sector, and in selecting the areas of specialty
that the profession provides.
The students are motivated to excel in their chosen path by their live exposure to the industry when they work as ancillary staff alongside experienced regular employees of the hotel, whether in Food production, Food and Beverage Service, Front office, and Housekeeping, as the case may be. The daily stipend for miscellaneous expenses is an added bonus to the learning process.
The SRM Institute of Hotel Management’s partner hotels in the IET are among the best in the
industry, providing with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain valuable insights into critical
aspects such as organisational behaviour, working culture, time management and scheduling,
inter-departmental communications, and stress management. It’s no surprise that students see
IET as the foundation of their careers.
The SRM IST is located within a kilometer of the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Guindy, Giving the
Institute and its Students the added advantage of Convenience for Practical on the Job
Experience and later translating to better employment opportunities.
