Last two decades has witnessed a tremendous surge in the application of Automation Technology in Indian Industries partly as a means to reduce the cost of production and partly to improve the quality of their products so that they become competitive in the international market. This has become necessary after opening up our economy to the global market. Automation requires knowledge in drives and controls, which in turn requires insight in PLC, Sensorics and Mechatronics. Full benefit of automation can only be realized when fundamental principles governing these areas of study are properly understood. With a view to producing trained personnel for automation in industries C. V. Raman College of Engineering (CVRCE) has gone into collaboration with Bosch-Rexroth, Germany who are market leaders in drives and control equipments. This has resulted in establishment of a state of the art training centre at CVRCE campus.
The objective of the above training program is to expose the participants to different aspects of automation and to improve their knowledge in hydraulic and pneumatic drives, logic circuits and sensor technology. The program covers both class room and laboratory components in line with those recommended by Bosch-Rexroth, Germany. The program will be conducted at C. V. Raman Campus and will offer the trainers an opportunity to handle state-of-the-art automation equipments marketed by Bosch-Rexroth.
The program is sure to be beneficial to B.Tech, Diploma and ITI students. It will not only improve their market value, but also add to their employment potential.
C. V. Raman Bosch Rexroth Centre of Excellence is a unique center inaugurated on 17th Sep. 2010 by Hon'ble Minister, Dept. of Higher Education, Govt. of Odisha.
It is worth appreciating the initiative taken by the Department of Mechanical Engineering to start Bosch-Rexroth Training Centre at C. V. Raman College of Engineering. The center will be unique in the state in terms of training in Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Mechatronics, PLC, Robotics, Sensorics and Industry 4.0 with active participation of Bosch-Rexroth, Germany. I am sure this center will help to develop competent manpower for different industries to support the industrial growth of Odisha and India. I wish the entire team of "C. V. Raman Bosch Rexroth Centre of Excellence" a big success.
It is with immense pleasure that I write this foreword for C. V. Raman Bosch-Rexroth Centre of Excellence. I have been associated with this project since the day of the MOU was signed with Bosch-Rexroth and it is indeed heartening to note that this untiring effort by our Chairman is going to bear fruit. The center prides itself of being equipped with the latest State - of - the - Art equipment on Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Robotics and Sensorics. The training program has also been designed to cater to the needs of the ITI, Diploma and B.Tech students with the present day industries going in for large scale automation, this training program will no doubt add to the market value of these students. I am sure this center is going to be an important landmark in technical studies in years to come.
To emerge as Global Leader in Industrial Automation.
To develop competent manpower for different industries to support the Industrial Growth of Odisha and India.
