Every Large industry in India has not only to purchase new technology from the developed
world. But we do not have the skilled manpower to operate the new tech-nological
tools optimally. India’s large companies pur-chase new technologies every year from
all over the world.
As India Succeeds in the Honourable Prime Minister’s “Make in India’s campaign”,
the Vibrant Gujarat 2015 succeeds in bringing huge new investments into manu-facturing,
Gujarat will require not only well-trained technologists, it would also require
GTU propose Skill Development program in new tech-nologies and also encourages
development and re-search activities in those technologies so that India can become
equally advance with the rest of the world when the present technologies are up-graded
or when disruptive new technologies are developed. The world is becoming inter-dependent
and GTU’s program in de-velopment new technologies will ensure that while we may
have to import some new technologies, we shall be able to contribute to the world
of new developments in an equal measure.
At GTU, the entire program of fostering student start-up, bringing practice-orientation in big way into engineering education, permeating all of the syllabi with design thinking and the Skill Development program are parts of holistic vision. The implementation of this vision, in a small part has started igniting the innovative spirits of the youth at GTU. The need is to equip the youth with the necessary knowledge and skill and to facilitate the progress of thousands of their dreams. This is the kind of vision, which in ten years will make India a significant player in the field of new technologies and new products and processes for ushering a smarter and more equitable world.
