A Centre of Excellence for Automation and Drives, a SIEMENS authorised training centre for the Southern region, was inaugurated at Karunya University here on Monday. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the university and SIEMENS in April 2008 to provide customer training and to be an interface between the industry and institution.

Inaugurating the centre, J.K. Verma, vice-president – Automation and Drives, Business Development and Sales, SIEMENS Limited, Mumbai, said: “This is the first training centre to be set up in the South. It will cater to the training needs of our customers in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Karnataka, who use our drives and automation products. It will address the training needs of the students.” He said this was the first time the company was having a tie-up with an education institution. After the training centre at Kalwa, Mumbai, this was the first of its kind to be set up in this region. It cost Rs. 50 lakh. “The centre has plans to extend its training to customers using the switchgear products of SIEMENS,” Mr. Verma added.

“In addition to the customers, third and final year students from the electrical, electronics, mechanical and civil engineering disciplines will get hands-on training at the centre from the company experts,” S. Suresh Kumar, the centre in-charge, Karunya University, said. Chancellor Paul Dhinakaran said the tie-up would result in grooming leaders with technical expertise and social commitment at the national and international level. Vice-Chancellor Paul P. Appasamy and Registrar Anne Mary Fernandez spoke.
