THANJAVUR: India will emerge as the manufacturing hub of the world in the years to come, said N. Ravichandran, Chief Executive Officer, Lucas TVS, here on Thursday.

Launching an M. Tech course in Advanced Manufacturing to be offered jointly by Shanhmugha Arts Science Technology and Research Academy (SASTRA) University and Lucas TVS, Mr. Ravichandran said this was why major automobile manufacturers such as Ford and Hyundai were setting up base in India. In the field of information technology and electronics too many foreign companies were focussing on India.

Now it had entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with SASTRA University to offer a postgraduate course. The aim was to come up with good manufacturing engineers. The course would incorporate world-class good practices with emphasis on total quality management.

While educational institutions provided knowledge, the industry provided skills and attitude. Educational institutions provided unlimited knowledge within a limited time. Institutions were created with the purpose of helping people for generations. Though Japan's population was only 12 crore and its area was 170th that of India, the Japanese dominated the world in industry because of their attitude.
