The Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI) and the Atria Institute of Technology (AIT), both in Bengaluru, have collaborated to boost technology R&D in Karnataka.
The CMTI is an autonomous multi-disciplinary institute operating under the Ministry of Heavy Industries with a mandate for research and development. Atria Institute, affiliated to the Visvesvaraya Technological University in Belgaum, is a premier institute of excellence in the field of engineering and manufacturing, and a centre of learning for aspirants in the manufacturing sector.
The two institutes will come together in the fields of micro-machining, green manufacturing, smart manufacturing, industrial ergonomics, additive manufacturing, welding, machining, finishing, metrology and other advanced manufacturing technology areas, with a focus on research and development of technology.
The partnership will aid the student community, the industry as well as the manufacturing sector at large. The CMTI and AIT signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Monday in Bengaluru outlining the terms of the partnership and the focus areas of study.
Addressing reporters at the MoU signing ceremony, Nagahanumaiah, Director, CMTI, said: “We see immense opportunity for each other in this partnership. I see a lot of manufacturing-related R&D efforts happening at AIT and I am excited to see AIT leveraging CMTI in their quest to become a premier manufacturing R&D hub.”
Sunder Raju, Chairman of Atria, said: “We are on a mission to radically transform the role of education institutions in India. The institutions should be the centre of research and development required to solve the problems facing industries.”
