Chennai, India – June 29, 2012 –RACE Innovations Pvt Ltd, one of the leading research and engineering consulting firms in automotive application, with profound domain expertise in commercial vehicle segment signed a MoU with Indira Institute of Engineering & Technology for the creation and expansion of Centre of Excellence (CoE) aimed largely to construct the state-of-art Research Library and testing infrastructure towards the development of Indian Logistics Industry Sector.
Indira Institute of Engineering & Technology (IIET), a highly reputed and best-in class educational institution in Thiruvallur has been a pioneer in engaging young and fresh talented engineers to explore the realms of engineering by changing the educational landscape from a traditional way of teaching methods to an application-based training. IIET’s state-of-art infrastructure facilities and highly qualified teaching faculty with profound engineering expertise empower the future generation of engineers to explore and imbibe the plethora of innovative and intuitive engineering insights enabling the students to achieve pinnacles of success. IIET’s enriching vocational-based engineering and persuasive industrial collaboration further reinforce the pursuit for achieving the excellence in engineering education.
IIET’s industrial partnership with RACE innovations will facilitate the former to accomplish their research-based education visionary objective. In addition, this powerful synergy also enables the latter to leverage the young talent pool of engineers to orchestrate innovative and unblemished application engineering in the automotive industry vertical.
RACE’s highly commendable visionary growth partner perception, its stronger focus to enhance the clientele value proposition and robust relationship with the leading Auto OEMs, fleet operators, body builders etc., highly complement its product portfolio delivering specialized services in design and implementation of niche technologies in automotive vertical.
IIET-RACE “Center of Excellence” is proposed to provide the state-of-art library facility encompassing a one-stop-shop for complete packets of design and technical information pertaining to road mobility. In addition, the library will house extensive syndicated market research deliverables to acquaint and inculcate the engineering managers with the deluge of automotive market insights and consulting know-hows for a perceived value addition to their engineering education. Such ubiquitous buckets of data also empower the teaching faculty and doctorate graduates with colossal proficiencies to sieve through design, technical and market-related information to further reinforce their engineering and management capabilities.
One of the key value proposition elements in the CoE is to set-up an integrated and multi-functional testing lab infrastructure, tailored to perform testing of various applications such as vehicle stability calculations, roll over testing, braking testing, material, and structural analysis, etc. – which can be input to various certification bodies such as National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRIP), Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) and so on.
IIET-RACE’s association dramatically extends its patronage to engineers and proactively boosts the morale of graduates as a stepping stone to get into the professional attire to fulfill the demand of application engineers in the automotive industry.
IIET’s vision to ignite the spirit of knowledge and quintessence of creativity and RACE’s success mantra – Instigate, Influence, and Impact steer towards accomplishing the mutual strategic roadmap.
