SASTRA University now offers M.Tech in Advanced Manufacturing

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.

Mr. Ravichandran said Lucas TVS was interested in producing quality engineers and associating with premier educational institutions to offer courses. It had set up the Advance Manufacturing cell in Indian Institute of Technology-Chennai and the Centre for Quality at Anna University-Chennai.

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.

Mr. Ravichandran signed the MoU with R. Sethuraman, Vice-Chancellor of SASTRA University. He said SASTRA was one of the quality institutions in the country and its rapid progress in fields such as bioengineering was amazing. "Lucas TVS is happy to sign the MoU with SASTRA."

Comparing the present situation with the sixties with respect to engineering and the institution-industry relationship, Mr. Ravichandran said opportunities were more now. There were only five engineering colleges in the sixties and 1200 engineers passed out every year. There was not much of interaction between institutions and industry then. When engineers landed up in companies from institutions, everything was Greek and Latin for them.

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.

K. Thyagarajan, dean of SASTRA, and S. Pugazhendhi, head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, participated in the programme.
