Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), to establish a new Centre of Excellence at Manipal Institute of Technology. The aim is to make MAHE students job-ready with the Centre of Excellence bringing skills-based education and industry partners together.
TKM has plans of establishing several Centres of Excellence with leading institutes across the country. The latest Centre is its sixth in Karnataka. In 2007, Toyota established the Toyota Technical Training Institute in Bidadi near Bangalore to impart world- class skills training to underprivileged youth from rural Karnataka through a comprehensive three-year program on automobile weld and mechatronics, automobile assembly, and automobile paint. These initiatives mark TMK’s commitment towards upscaling skill sets and preparing a skilled workforce for the automotive industry.
