To help engineering students enhance their skill sets and make them industry ready, Toyota Kirloskar Motors (TKM) on Monday inaugurated the ‘Centre of Excellence’ at the Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering.

This is Toyota’s fourth such centre in the state. The objectives are to help the students achieve excellence in developing core employability skills, competency standards and to train them for advancement in technologies to meet the demands of varied global industries.

Following the inauguration, Hemachandra Sagar, Chairman, Dayanand Sagar Institutions said: “Through this program, we are confident that the students would gain better insight into the complexity associated with the engine, which is an essential part of a vehicle, while enriching their learning experience and making it more practical and interactive.”

Toyota handed over one cut section of the vehicle engine and an assembled engine. The engine cut section showcased the engine component set-up and related functioning. The engine assembly section enables the students to understand the real orientation of the assembled engine including the dismantling and re-assembling techniques, thus helping them achieve superior skills in engine operating mechanism as part of the skill enhancement program.

Our objective at Toyota is to enable the students to be industry ready with the desired skill sets and competencies, while contributing to the nation’s growth and industry’s employability ratio.

“We are confident that such practical exposure would enable the students to cope with different levels of operations associated with automotive functional mechanisms, while making classroom learning more interesting and exciting,” Naveen Soni, Vice President, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said.
