The Department of Employment and Training to implement the idea of “Public-Private Partnership model” as announced by the Union Finance Minister, in his budget speech 2004-05 so that the ITIs keep pace with the technological demands of the industry and with the expanding universe of knowledge. The objective of these efforts is to produce a world class work force in consultation with DGE&T, Ministry of Labour, which has launched a special scheme called “Centre of Excellence”. Accordingly, the Department has set up a Centre of Excellence in our ITI in the “Electronics Sector” w.e.f. August 2007. The scheme is supervised and managed by specially constituted by the committee called as “Institute Management Committee” headed by Industry representatives from the Electronics Sectors and other areas.
The new government policies on globalization and liberalization attracted lot of multi-national companies to start their units in India. Because of this, stiff competition exists among multinational companies and Indian companies for increasing the quality and quantity of their products, and sell them in competitive prices. To achieve this task without increasing the manufacturing cost all the industries are forced to install the state of the art machines and multi skilled work force to operate and maintain these modern machines.
To cater this demand of training multiskilled workers of higher competency, the government of India has selected some of the ITI’s throughout India for upgrading into Centre Of Excellence. In Karnataka 12 ITI’s are selected and implemented this CoE scheme in two phases. In 2007-2008 academic year, this ITI is selected for up gradation of existing institute into a “Centre of Excellence “ in Electronics Sector to meet Industrial requirement of Skilled Electronics Technicians.
