Tata Technologies has entered into a collaboration with the government of Assam to transform 34 state polytechnics and 43 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) into futuristic Centres of Excellence (CoEs).
The total proposed investment under this project will be approximately Rs 2,390 crore. The company has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Assam government for a period of 10 years for the purpose.
Post upgradation, these COEs will not only cater to the advanced skill requirements of students aligned to the key industries in Assam, but also act as a technology and industrial hub for MSMEs and support entrepreneurship.
The COEs will cover various technical courses related to Industry 4.0, such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), EV product design and development, design for artisans and handicrafts, modern automotive maintenance repair and overhaul, battery electric vehicle training, IoT and digital instrumentation, advanced manufacturing and prototyping, industrial robotics with arc welding, AI-based virtual welding and painting.
