The MoU will lead to the setting up of a robotics laboratory for providing training to faculty members and students, industrial visits, internships, exploring research opportunities in the field of robotics, projects, and employment opportunities for students.

Dr. DY Patil Institute of Technology, Pimpri has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with TAL Manufacturing Solutions Limited for the setting up of a centre of excellence in robotics and automation.

The MoU was signed on September 22 by Somnath Patil, secretary, Dr. DY Patil Vidya Pratishthan Society and Amit Bingurde, chief operating officer of TAL Ltd.

The MoU will lead to the setting up of a robotics laboratory for providing training to faculty members and students, industrial visits, internships, exploring research opportunities in the field of robotics, projects, and employment opportunities for students. It will also help towards providing an incubation facility for budding engineers to become entrepreneurs. Robots used that come under the MoU are indigenously manufactured by TAL.

TAL Manufacturing Solutions Limited is a Chinchwad-based enterprise of the TATA group, delivering manufacturing solutions for over 40 years to customers in automotive and heavy engineering and more recently, to the aerospace and defence sectors.

Amit Bingurde, chief operating officer of TAL Ltd. said that “There is huge scope for research in the field of robotics and there is shortage of skilled engineers in the robotics field.” He appealed to the students and faculty members to gain hands-on training at the centre of excellence and to do more research in the field of robotics.

While concluding, he clarified about the fear of job losses that could arise with the growth of robotics and assured that robotics will only create more jobs.

In his speech, Somnath Patil, secretary of the Dr. DY Patil Vidya Pratishthan Society, welcomed the partnership with the institute with TAL. He assured that the MoU will help in creating a bright future for students.

Principal, PD Patil, congratulated TAL for developing robots completely designed and manufactured in India and for bringing the technology nearer to academic institutions to create pool of skilled engineers.
