An industrial visit is considered as one of the most tactical methods of teaching. This visit provided the students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices of the company. 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.
