Following is an excerpt from a report in Business Standard.
Last year all the 121 students who passed out from the centre were absorbed in different companies. The students of the centre’s first batch had received offers from various national and international companies such as Siemens, L&T, Robert Bosch, Maruti Suzuki, Punj Lyod, AMW, Soma Enterprise, OCL, JSW, US-based Transocean Infrastructure and the Dubai-based Al-Shirwai Group.
Out of the total strength of 121 students, 66 belonged to the families affected by Tata Steel’s Gopalpur project. Tata Steel is imparting bridge course training to the members of the affected families to enable them to get admission to the JN Tata Technical Education Centre.
J N Tata Technical Education Center, run by the Bangalore-based Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF), provides a three-year diploma course in Electronics, Mechatronics (mechanical and electronics engineering) and Manufacturing Technology.
The centre was set up by Tata Steel at Gopalpur in 2005 to promote quality technical education in Orissa for improving employability of the youth of the state.
Tata Steel has invested more than Rs 28 crore for setting up the infrastructure of the institute.
The institute is spread over an area of 20 acres with a built space of more than 50,000 sq ft. Tata Steel is now building a hostel for the students at an investment of about Rs 7 crore.
