Mercedes-Benz Offers New EV Course at Women’s Engg College in Pune

One of India’s leading luxury car manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz, has announced a fresh EV course under its skill development program to upgrade its talent pool. This is aimed at creating meaningful ‘human capital’ through academic up-skilling projects.

The new course — ‘EV module’ — has been added to an existing EV-centered diploma program offered by the company.

Mercedes-Benz’s new ‘EV module’ has been introduced at the Maharshi Karve Stree Shikshan Samstha (MKSSS Women’s College) first in Pune, Maharashtra. The program is also aimed at promoting diversity and equal opportunity for women in the auto industry.

Electric is the future, and it is imperative that we drive ahead with upskilling and re-skilling initiatives for our talent pool, making them industry ready and creating a robust e-mobility ecosystem,” said Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.

The EV module will be a part of the 12-month Advanced Diploma in Automotive Mechatronics (ADAM) program. The diploma course itself is a unique public-private partnership (PPP) initiative to up-skill students and groom them with the latest technological advancements.

It is learnt that the course will be split into subtopics and is designed in a way that will help to impart a holistic understanding of the latest cutting-edge EV technology. The focus shall be on quality that will help the course stand at par with the global industry standards.

The beneficiaries of the skill development course will be imparted knowledge about the advanced level of systems in the vehicle, awareness about the HV System & its measurements and personal-plus-vehicle safety.

The institute will also provide an opportunity for the students to get hands-on practical expertise in EV technologies.

Mercedes-Benz had introduced the original ADAM course back in 2006. Since then, it has been focusing on building competencies and skills and has been operational in nine technical institutions in various cities across the country.

Until now, more than 1200 students have benefited from the ADAM course since its inception, which helps them immensely to achieve placement in the EV industry, according to the company.
