Tata Motors has announced its partnership with Graphic Era Hill University (GEHU) in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand, to provide an M Tech degree in EV technology to its employees working at the Pantnagar Plant.
The company-sponsored programme aims to enhance employees’ technical skills, thereby bridging skill gaps in the automotive industry and creating a future-ready organisation.
According to a press release from Tata Motors, the curriculum of this M Tech programme is designed to meet the rapidly growing skillset demands in the automotive industry.
