Why we will join SVIT ISHRAE Student Chapter?

Some of the key benefits that the Student Community gains as follows:

  • Access to technical seminars and major events organized by ISHRAE.

  • Regular technical seminars and programs on AC & R Subjects at their college premises by experts from the HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air-Conditioning) industry

  • Receipt of periodic ISHRAE journals to all Student members at subsidized rates.

  • One-on-one interaction and exposure for the Students with who's who in the HVAC industry during these events.

  • Access to Scholarships and Sponsors from Corporate

  • Participation in National Events and Surveys enhancing their visibility and employability

  • Easy access to Fundamental and Basic courses organized by IIE (ISHRAE Institute of Excellence) which increases the employability of students.

  • Soft skills training to further increase employability and overall development of Students.

  • Last but not the least placement opportunities in the HVAC industry.

While we have a long way to go in consolidating these efforts and providing further benefits to the students we are confident that we have started in the right direction. The role of the Faculty Advisor in each of these institutions and the mentors from each chapter from the ISHRAE fraternity have key role in anchoring this initiative to greater heights. We are positive and have even bigger dreams to make the core industry once again a bastion for the students.
