Tata Technologies partners with N.K. Orchid College of Engineering in Solapur

 Tata Technologies, partnered with N.K. Orchid College of Engineering, Solapur to launch the ‘Distance Ready Engineer’ platform, as a part of its corporate sustainability program. The initiative aims to improve the employability of engineers and reduce the time and resources spent by companies on re-training the graduate engineers.
According to the third edition of the National Employability Report, Engineering Graduates – 2014, though 18.33% of the engineers are employable, 18.09% actually get a job. The ‘Distance Ready Engineer’ program as an industry-academia interface is a means to enhance design and application skills of students and work towards creating a pool of highly qualified and industry-ready professionals.
“At a time when we flagged off the ‘Make in India’ Campaign the expansion in manufacturing sector will require additional pumping of talented individuals to focus on zero defect quality, e-innovate, ready talent and opportunity. Tata Technologies is taking a step in this direction through our Distance Ready Engineer Program and we hope, this will give students the right opportunity to grow,” said Anubhav Kapoor, General Counsel and Company Secretary at Tata Technologies.
“In an attempt to solve one of the industry’s biggest challenges of ready talent through direct intervention, Tata Technologies initiated Ready Engineer Program in 2010. This program impacted more than 500 students not only in India but also in UK and USA through a classroom model. Now, taking a step further, we want to reach out to each and every student in the country. For this, we have developed an e-learning module of the program which gives access to subject matter experts from the industry right to the student in a most easily accessible form. This program will also extend to the Professors of the colleges in India to act as our evangelists and mentors to the students,” said S.D. Pradhan, Sustainability Consultant at Tata Technologies.
As an e-learning course, this is likely to reach out to engineers in India and around the globe. The e-learning module is a 40 hours training on Tata Technologies’ proprietary iGET IT platform consisting of CATIA V5 software and domain knowledge on Analysis, Crash, Die Design and Formability. This program has been developed by in-house experts of Tata Technologies. The modules focus on developing the understanding of application of engineering fundamentals by reviewing case study projects
