MG Motor India on November 11 signed a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Automotive Skill Development Council (ASDC) and Autobot India to extend its global tech prowess and expertise to students.
The partnership is a step towards democratising high-end car technologies in the country through online and offline skill development courses for engineering students, said a press release.
The carmaker has introduced an automotive skill development programme for youths, called ‘Dakshata’, in partnership with ASDC and Autobot India. The move is part of MG’s vision of CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric) mobility which it has augmented in its product portfolio in the country.
Dakshata will comprise an eight-module training programme specialising in Artificial Intelligence and electric vehicles. It will focus on skill enhancement thereby improving employability in the automotive sector while creating skilled manpower to cater to the automotive industry’s future requirements.
The Dakshata project will initially focus on online learning during COVID times and will later involve case studies and best practice sharing.
