The platform has launched it’s E-Mobility program back in 2016 with Vecmocon, based out of IIT Delhi, and has since then served more than 50,000 students and professionals from Hyundai, Bosch, and Maruti Suzuki placing more than 80% of it’s students in the rising EV market. It has recently been accredited as the official partner of ASDC in the implementation of online courses in Electric Vehicle Engineering in India and is the only platform recognized by National Education Alliance for Technology (NEAT) AICTE, Ministry of Education.
Looking into the global skill development market in high end technologies, the opportunity for platform like DIYguru is huge and is targeting to tap into the international market with it’s offering in Aerospace, 3D Printing, IoT and Satellite courses in the near future. One of the sources from the company said via email.
Arindam Lahiri, CEO, ASDC said “As the technology-cost curve is becoming steeper, more technologies are finding their way into the automotive sector at present. Be it hybrid technology, or electric vehicles, the automotive industry is evolving at a rapid pace. The program’s goal is to train engineering and diploma students to fill the supply deficit of the skilled automotive workforce. The industry has to cope with rapid digitalization to meet the growing demands of our consumers. It is facing a rising skills shortage.”
The government had initiated the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan in the year 2013 to put 6-7 million electric vehicles on Indian roads by 2020 and committing to achieving 30 percent e-mobility in the country by 2030. To achieve this goal India will need to create a skilled and trained workforce that has expertise in design and testing, battery manufacturing and management, sales, services, and infrastructure of electric vehicles. ASDC aims to skill and certify 25 million youth in the next 10 years, equipping professionals with skills in areas like IoT, mechatronics, robotics, 3D-printing, AI, machine learning, deep learning, analytics, virtual collaboration, automotive design, and computational thinking.
