Schwing’s training program aims to bridge the gap between education and application of knowledge in the CE industry.
Schwing Stetter India, one of the leading manufacturers of concreting equipment in the country, has partnered with Government Polytechnic College, Cheyyar. The idea of this collaboration is to train 125 students to apply their course knowledge in the construction equipment industry. Students belonging to different branches of study including Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Communications Engineering will receive 25 days of training at Schwing Stetter India’s world-class Global Manufacturing Hub in Cheyyar. The training program, which began July 1stis funded by the state government.
This program is aimed directly at enabling trainees to apply their course knowledge in the CE industry, and to make them more employable by training them to understand the process of running a plant, and the basics of maintenance and manufacturing state-of-the-art machines from Schwing Stetter India.
Schwing Stetter India took this training initiative directly with the college administration, who seized the opportunity to help their students gain vital experience with the prescribed theory and practical sessions. Keeping in mind the safety and well-being of these trainees, the company has also distributed safety shoes to all participants with regard to the safety regulations of the workshop.
Speaking of the importance of such initiatives, Mr. VG Sakthikumar, Managing Director, Schwing Stetter India, said, “At Schwing Stetter India, we will continue to work to create and provide more such platforms that help the student community learn more about the CE industry and understand the types of roles that we play. By providing such training, we hope that more students from all sectors will be encouraged to join the CE industry! »
The director of the institution Mrs. P. Shanbagavalli, who spoke at the inauguration of the training programme, said, “The college administration has been overwhelmed by this opportunity and Schwing Stetter India’s training facility in Cheyyar is top notch. As we realize the potential of this collaboration, we would be happy to collaborate with Schwing Stetter India again in the near future to help our students become part of the CE industry workforce.
At this inaugural ceremony, Schwing Stetter India and Government Polytechnic College, Cheyyar signed a Memorandum of Understanding which is expected to include more programs such as industrial visits, on-machine training and staff training for administration.
