MOHALI, India, July 7, 2022 — MG Motor India presented Hector to Chandigarh University to foster skill development and bridge the gap between academia and industry. The initiative aligns with the MG Nurture program and MG’s goal of CASE mobility. It will foster student skill development and prepare them for better employment opportunities.

Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer, Education Minister, Punjab, was the chief guest at the ceremony. He, along with Yeshwinder Patial, Head, Human Resources, MG Motor India, handed over the keys of MG Hector to S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University. Pooja Syal Grewal, Additional Deputy Commissioner (Urban Development), Mohali, Rajesh Mehrotra, Head- Aftersales, MGI, and Reema Sharma, Senior HR Business Partner, Corporate Office MGI were among those who graced the occasion.

Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer, Punjab Education Minister, said that the need of the hour was to add skill development to the conventional education system. Practical knowledge and hands-on training were a must, along with books.

“India is the youngest nation across the globe, and none can stop its rise to the top of the world, provided we channel the energy of the youth in the right direction. Corporates and Industry leaders like MG Motor India and top educational institutions like Chandigarh University have to unite to steer India’s charge to the top,” said the Minister.

Hayer asked the students in the audience to make the most of their time at the University and build a better future.

“This is your time to learn, to move forward, and build a brighter future for yourself. This time will not come again. It would be best if you decided what to do with your time. While fun is important, it must not come at the cost of learning,” Mr. Hayer said.

“It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that Chandigarh University has forged a partnership with MG Motor India under our flagship Industry-Academia Interface program. The program develops Industry-oriented skills amongst our students and prepares industry-ready professionals. This partnership adds to our ever-strong portfolio of more than 30 tie-ups with industry leaders such as Microsoft, Google, Virtusa, Hyundai, Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Tech Mahindra, Bosch, Honda, IBM, and Videocon. These and many others have established their research centers and laboratories on the campus,” said S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University.

“The addition of MG Hector Car into the existing equipment, technology, and infrastructure of the University will provide our students, especially from Mechanical Engineering and its allied branches such as Automobile Engineering, an opportunity to upskill their knowledge with advanced vehicle technology in detail. Along with the demonstration and understating of the technology that runs a modern car, it will help in practical knowledge of automobile engineering courses offered in the curriculum and consequently will make the students job-ready and prepare them for better industry prospects,” he added.

Yeshwinder Patial, Director, HR, MG Motor India, said, “We are delighted with this partnership with the Chandigarh University. It will ensure the current generation’s skill development in the mobility segment. We feel this initiative will add value to help children become technologically savvy for the auto-tech industry and prepare them for future job opportunities. The initiative is aligned with the MG’s Nurture program.”

“The partnership will introduce students to vehicular systems and help them understand how to perform primary inspection procedures on cars. In addition, it will empower students with hands-on research on various electrical, electronic, and mechanical systems of technologically advanced vehicles. Students will study multiple parts, technology, and techniques, including engine parts, fuel systems, drive trains, ignition systems, vehicle chassis, HVAC systems, and more. Students of Chandigarh University will also get an opportunity to learn about a car’s aesthetic and interior design aspects,” he added.
