About the Centers

In collaboration with Bosch-Rexroth India Limited (BRIN), Gujarat Technological University has started building a Centre of Excellence (COE) in I-4.0 frontiers of today's technology in Automation Technologies with the goal of developing industry institute partnerships in the fields of Automation, Mobile Hydraulic, Automobile, and Mobile Electronics Technologies to bridge technology gaps between industry and academia and foster research and knowledge among students at GTU. Objectives of GTU- Centre of Excellence in Automation

In this regard, the Vishwakarma Government Engineering College (VGEC) in Chandkheda, Ahmedabad, is establishing the first Centre of Excellence. This centre will serve as a resource for students interested in learning about automation technologies, with a focus on training, knowledge transfer, research projects, application-oriented research, and innovation. These centres will boost employability by providing access to the most up-to-date skill sets, as well as chances for emerging entrepreneurs using cutting-edge technology. The center's main purpose would be to improve the technical competence, employability, and entrepreneurship of UG and PG students who train there, as well as to encourage students to pursue postgraduate studies.

With the following objectives, the centre of competence is established to bridge the gap between industrial expectations and theoretical deficiencies:

To provide students from engineering and polytechnic colleges with hands-on exposure with current industry technologies.

By utilising the concept of a centre of excellence, all students from all regions and rural areas would be able to gain exposure to industry and innovations. The GTU-Bosch Rexroth Centre of Competence's activities include:

Faculty, students of engineering and polytechnic institutes, and industries in the coastal region will be trained at the centre.

The centre will provide opportunities for people to participate in initiatives.

A global institution dedicated to the development and enhancement of human and organisational knowledge, with a focus on training, research, safety, and skill upgradation. Welding, both manually and automatically, would be our primary focus.

The purpose is to meet the industrial needs of a skilled individual at all levels, from labour to management. We would also be involved in assisting the industry in establishing and improving the process in accordance with their needs. Parallel in-house research projects involving students and industry would be carried out."

Keepsake Engineering Consultancy Private Limited (Keepsake – Industry Partner), Centre for Entrepreneurship Development(CED), Gujarat Technological University(GTU), and LD College of Engineering, Ahmedabad have collaborated to establish a high-tech training centre in the field of welding called "GTU-Keepsake Welding Research And Skill Development Centre – Centre Of Excellence Welding" as part of the Gujarat Technological University's (GTU) Skill Development Program.

Center established under the Scheme:

  • Gujarat Industrial Policy, 2015
  • Scheme for Enhancement of Technical Competence and Manpower
  • Government of Gujarat Industries & Mines Department
  • Resolution No. CED-112015-24553-I, Date: 01/04/2015
  • Scheme-2: Short –Term Bridge Course by Industries/Institute.
  • Welding Equipment’s for on hand training (SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, PAW):

    • 2-Axis Rotator
    • Lorch V50 DC
    • Lorch MicorMIG 350
    • Lorch MicorMIG 400
    • Lorch S5RoboMIG XT
    • Lorch HWT 220DC ControlPro
    • Fronius
    • Kuka Robot (6 & 9 Axis)
    • Welding Simulator (Virtual Welding)

    The best international course packages (ASM International Gujarat Chapter) have been implemented to provide high standards of education and training, allowing qualified individuals to seek the best chances not only in the country but also overseas.

    Several specific courses are available for students, welders, technicians, supervisors, inspectors, engineers, and managers at various levels. While each course meets the broad requirement to improve efficiency and provide updates in Welding Technology and Non-Destructive Testing, they all have something in common.

    While welders, students, engineers, and supervisors gain hands-on insight into the latest innovations in welding and NDT, our training focuses on skill enhancement.
