Tata Technologies Ltd partnered with the Osama government on Wednesday to transform 34 public polytechnics and 43 industrial training institutes (ITIs) into futuristic centers of excellence (CoEs), with an investment of around Rs 2,390. The company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoA) with the Osama government for a period of 10 years for this purpose, Tata Technologies said.
According to the statement, after the upgrade, these COEs will not only meet the advanced skills requirements of students working in key areas in Assam, but will also act as a technology and industry hub for IHR and support entrepreneurship.

“The updated COEs will offer a wide range of courses to enhance the skills of Osama’s youth in various areas of the traditional and modern era, empowering the Northeast region of India, which is a key focus for the Tata Group,” said Subromanian Ramadorai, Chairman of Tata Technologies.
“Through this collaboration with the Assam government, we will use our expertise in manufacturing technology and expertise to create future-prepared courses and a training platform that will enable Polytechnic and ITIS students to develop their skills and capabilities in line with Industry 4.0 and be part of an ecosystem that is rapidly transforming, ”said Warren Harris, CEO and CEO of Tata Technologies.
Chief Minister Osama Himanta Biswa Sarma said: “We also believe that this initiative will be of great benefit to MSMEs who cannot afford high-end technological equipment that will be facilitated for use in polytechnics and IT.”
