Training of engineering students in an industrial environment is an alternative to projects undertaken within the institute. The approach becomes more challenging as it puts them in a new environment with the generally accepted goal of improving their application skills. To implement such a scheme requires a coherent effort from students, faculty members and industry supervisors. In this case study, we propose a model for making formal need assessment of engineering students' training which [then] forms the basis of [the training's] evaluation and effectiveness. The [need] assessment is [outlined in terms of] inherent attributes, generic attributes, technical skills and students' basic needs of training. Finally, the students' reaction evaluation and relevance [of training] to job prospects are presented.
