Written by Akhil Dalvi

Chinese-owned British manufacturer MG Motor India has announced its plans of extending its cars to select engineering colleges in Gujarat. The partnership between the automaker and engineering colleges will enhance technological skill sets in students under the ‘MG Nurture’ initiative. This plan will also help in bridging the existing gap between the Indian industry and academia in the auto-tech world. The partnership will empower students to carry out in-depth, hands-on research and garner insights into the intricacies of technologically advanced vehicles.

Initiative Benefits for Students 

Under this partnership, students will study the wide range of parts, technology, and systems of the various MG vehicles. These systems and parts include the fuel system, engine, ignition system, vehicle chassis, and the engineering of the bodywork. Thanks to these learnings, the innovative students of tomorrow can then showcase first-hand knowledge of major automotive systems in vehicles. This initiative will also enhance the future employability of students and make them industry-ready for MG or any other automotive brand.

MG Motor India states that it aims to equip the current generation of students with relevant skills for the future. The automaker’s alliance with engineering colleges and its plans of providing vehicles aligns with its vision of CASE mobility. With this vision, MG aims to offer learning and skill development, along with an overall commitment to strengthening the mobility ecosystem. Therefore, MG Motor India has taken positive strides towards creating a robust, innovative ecosystem in the country.

Other Collaborations & Plans 

The company has recently extended its collaboration with IIT Delhi by donating its top-spec ZS EV for conducting important tests. This includes fueling the Research and development of future electric vehicles throughout India that will provide relief for customers. It has also partnered with the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) and launched ‘Project Dakshata’.

This project, under the collaboration of the Automotive Skill Development Council (ASDC) and Autobot India, aims to educate and foster skill development. Such initiatives act as an ideal platform to brainstorm new technologies and motivate youngsters to carry the torch of innovation. Therefore, MG believes that these youngsters will one day become visionary leaders in the EV and AI industries of India.
