Swaraj Tractors, a part of Mahindra Group, has launched the ‘Mera Swaraj Education Support Program’, an early career development initiative for engineering students across the country.
The programme , said a press release, is designed to expose first-year engineering students to critical and holistic industry experiences necessary for long-term career development. Students from top engineering colleges offering Agri-engineering will be targeted for this programme, added the release.
For its first year, Swaraj Tractors has selected 37 students for internships from eight engineering colleges. The students will be subsumed into Swaraj’s final placement process. As a part of their internships, they will also work on live farm- mechanisation projects mentored by industry experts.
Through this programme, the students will also receive financial support for four years, subject to consistent academic performance.
Mr. Harish Chavan, Chief Executive Officer, Swaraj Tractors, said, “Through the ‘Mera Swaraj Education Support Program’ we not only hope to support deserving students pursuing engineering education but acquaint them with modern tools and technologies through practical exposures in industry.”
