Mercedes Benz India’s Mechatronic Programme Introduced In Bhubaneswar

Mercedes Benz India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the German auto giant, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) to introduce the Advanced Diploma in Automotive Mechatronics course in the capital city.

For the past 17 years, such courses are being conducted in government institutions across various cities including Pune, Aurangabad, New Delhi, Noida, Trivandrum, Bangalore and Ghaziabad. As of now, more than 650 students in India have been trained through the Mechatronics programme.

“ADAM Course is a one of its kind initiative in the industry and we are excited to expand it further to KIIT. The auto segment is one of the highest contributors to the GDP of the nation. As the leaders in the auto luxury segment, it is incumbent upon us to upskill the youth with the technical expertise required in the segment to make them future-ready. Mercedes-Benz India’s unwavering commitment to contribute back to the society has led to the expansion of this course and its success is immensely satisfying. Over the years we have successfully tied-up with nine institutions over 650 students successfully trained. We have been consistently building competencies and skills that positively benefit young minds and the society at large,” said Martin Schwenk, Managing Director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.

KIIT, founded in 1992, is one of the leading private institutes in Odisha. It was awarded the deemed university status in 2004 and currently offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in various subjects including Engineering, Biotechnology, Medicine, Management, Law, and more.
