Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) in continuation to its sustainable efforts towards Skill Development, inaugurated the Toyota Centre of Excellence at Global Academy of Technology located in Bengaluru. To aid far-reaching knowledge-base of engine composition at the grass-root level, Toyota handed over one cut section of the vehicle engine and an assembled engine. The key focus is to enable comprehensive learning opportunities for the students, offering them a first-hand experience of the vehicle engine. The engine cut section will showcase the component set-up in an engine and its related functioning. While the engine assembly section enables the students to gain an insight into the real orientation of the assembled engine including the dismantling and re-assembling techniques, thus achieving high-quality skill sets in engine operating mechanism.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Naveen Soni - Vice President - Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said “Through our established Centre of Excellence in association with various colleges and institutes across the country, we are striving to aid comprehensive learning among the students at the base classroom levels in our mission to provide India with a highly skilled workforce to match with evolving skill demands of the automotive industry.”
