Mercedes-Benz India, in collaboration with the Delhi Government, has initiated a new program in order to provide training to youth candidates in the field of mechanical, electronics, informatics and other modern automation technologies. As a part of this program, G. B. Pant Institute of Technology and Mercedes-Benz India signed a Memorandum of Understanding to run a one-year Advance Diploma in Automotive Mechatronics (ADAM), which will aim to educate the Delhi youth with the latest technology and make them employable.
“Delhi Govt is making all efforts to bring in the best of global companies to impart knowledge and provide hands-on experience to our students so that they do not lag behind with any of their competitors in the market. We have tried to link our vocational studies at the school level with the higher education so that the students can acquire maximum knowledge on the subject matter. I am sure such ventures will help us in our endeavour to produce students with skill of class quality.“ said Mr Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi.
Mercedes-Benz had started the Mechatronics training school in India back in the year 2002. It takes only 20 students per centre for the course every year. Until now, more than 540 students have successfully completed the program and placed within various organizations in India.
The new course will be started under the Automobile Discipline of the college with a single batch of 20 students who will be selected strictly on the basis of marks secured in an Entrance Test conducted jointly by the college and Mercedes-Benz. Only the candidates with Engineering Degree or Diploma will be eligible to appear for the entrance test.
