Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) under the guidance of European Center for Mechanical (ECM) decided to provide training for the engineering students in the Advanced Robot Control Course for the first time in the country. To this extent, a Memorandum of Understanding between APSSDC and ECM was held at Gateway Hotel, Vijayawada on 2nd November. On behalf of Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation MD & CEO K. Sambasiva Rao, European Council For Mechatronics President VVS Raju, Managing Directors Till Quadflieg , Christoph Greb exchanged the agreement. To this event, APSSDC MD & CEO K. Sambasiva Rao, APSSDC Deputy CEO KrithikaShukla, Special Chief secretary JSV Prasad, APSSDC Founder Member, Retired IAS Doctor. K. Lakshmi Narayana, European Council For Mechatronics President VVS Raju, Managing Directors Till Quadflieg , Christoph Greb and other government officials are attended.
The Advance Robot Control Labs are set up as part of the agreement. Students are trained with the best standards on the manufacture of Mechatronics, automation and industrial robotics. The aim is to train over 40,000 selected 40 engineering colleges across the state. In the first phase, 12 engineering colleges are selected and trained for 3,000 people. Akon University of Germany and the Center for European Center for Mechanical Sciences (ECM) will train students. German-based Iugus and Italian-made COMAU robots are available in each lab and cost of each one is 30Lakhs. The students are trained for three months. The cost of training is 30 thousand rupees. APSDCC 45%, ECM 45%, college / students will bear 10%. Those who have completed their training will get certificates from Akon University.
On this occasion APSSDC MD & CEO K. Sambasiva Rao stated that, Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation is the top ranking organization in providing skill training for students and unemployed youth. Already we are working with international companies like Google, Dassault, Siemens and Amazon. Now we are creating a world class ecosystem in the fields of industrial manufacturing and robotics, collaborating with German partners APS European Center for Mechatronics. Under Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation, 8 lakh people are being trained this year. In the coming days, employment opportunities in the robotics are widespread. So we have decided to give training to engineering students in the state together with the European Center for Mechanical Engineering, and in the first phase, 12 engineering colleges will be trained.
Later, APSSDC Deputy CEO Krithika Shuklasaid that the first day of taking responsibility in the company was to be happy to participate in such a big event. I hope that this program will succeed by 10,000 people and this program will succeed.
APSSDC Founder Member Dr. K. Retired IAS Lakshmi Narayana said that, The APSSDC is working to bring all the new technologies to our state students which are available internationally. He suggested that students should be able to get opportunities in the future of the Mechatronics and Robotics.
Later, Special Chief Secretary JVV Prasad said that in the four years under APSSDC, various skill training programs are being implemented with local and international organizations. He reminded the Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu who is implementing the skills training programs in any state in the country with Vision. Engineering Colleges, Polytechnic, ITI Colleges, Skills Training Programs and ITIs will be upgraded to meet the requirements of industry.
Later, European Center for Mechanics (ECM) president VVN Raju and Managing Director Till Quadflieg, Christoph Grab, said that working together with the Government of Andhra Pradesh was happy to partner with the youth. Finally, representatives of various engineering colleges in the state have discussed this course of training, future employment opportunities and other issues with the European Center for Mechanical (ECM) Representatives.
