In an effort to create an opportunity for undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students to get hands-on experience in mechanical engineering, TVS Motor Company has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Thiagarajar College of Engineering (TCE), Madurai by way of which, TVS Motor Company and Thiagarajar College of Engineering will run a collaborative undergraduate program. The programme will conform to highest standards and will include four to six weeks of internship during semester vacations as well as a major project at TVS Motor Company or any of its associate companies during last semester. On completion of 1st semester study of B.E. Mechanical Engineering program, TCE students will be eligible to apply for this program. Selection will be based purely on merit.

The MOU was signed by Mr. K N Radhakrishnan, President and CEO, TVS Motor Company and Dr. V. Abhai Kumar, Principal, Thiagarajar College of Engineering.

"The main objective of this program is to produce high caliber mechanical engineers, who are ready for roles in a Corporate when they complete their studies. Under this program, experienced managers from TVS Motor Company and professors of TCE will co-create contemporary curriculum, teaching methodology and evaluation process in order to make the students ready for role on graduation, which takes about two years currently. Students, who opt for this program, will also have the added benefit of financial assistance” said Mr. K N Radhakrishnan, President & CEO, TVS Motor Company.

Thiagarajar College of Engineering has completed over fifty three years of turning out quality Engineers and has excellent facilities, faculty and environment for all engineering branches.

"This program is a win-win, for the students for the college as well as to TVS Motor Company. It is imperative that manufacturing companies like TVS Motor Company come forward for such collaborations which would enhance and strengthen the competence of our mechanical engineering students. This program will also act as a catalyst for placement once students complete their course, as they would have already showcased specific skills during the internship with TVS Motor Company and its group companies" said Dr. V. Abhai Kumar, Principal, Thiagarajar College of Engineering.
