HYDERABAD: Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering (MCEME) organised a seminar on “Industry Interaction on Solutions for Problem Statements of Indian Army” on Saturday.

The seminar mainly focused on an overview of problems being faced by Indian Army and how industry could get clarity and collaborate with Army on solving these problems, including through utilising niche technological domains. This would also fulfil the motto of “Atmanirbhar Bharat”.

MCEME organised the seminar in collaboration with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
