“India ITME Society has always strived for the best learning experience through its revolutionary programs that add depth and elevate the knowledge of students who are the young minds of today and responsible citizens of tomorrow. . Continuing the unique series of ‘Nurture the Future’ program, this was the third program to bring together industry, government and academia for better synergy and growth of the textile engineering industry in India ”, the statement added.
