Importance of Educational Tour


Stephen World Travels welcomes you in Educational Tour Section. Educational Tour is a part of a college curriculum, seen more often in an engineering, management, I.T course, during which students visit companies and get insight regarding the internal working environment of a company and how a company functions, as well as useful information related to the practical aspects of the educational course which cannot be visualised in lectures.


The industrial visit is considered one of the most tactical methods of teaching. It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. Visiting a company gives students a practical perspective on the world of work, it gives them exposure to current work practices as opposed to possibly theoretical knowledge being taught at college. 


Industrial visit is very important to any student undergoing professional education such as Engineering, Business management, Biotechnology, Pharmacy, Architecture and many more, no institute providing these courses has got enough infrastructure to show case all the real working equipment's, machinery, operational methodology and everything else, that students will come across once they enter into professional field, after the completion of their respective courses, so these industrial tours are an effort to bridge this gap of practical exposure.
