The Plastindia International University deemed as one of the prestigious universities to be set-up in Vapi Gujarat, saw the presence of delegates and faculty members from University of Massachusetts Lowell (U-MASS), as they visited India to familiarize themselves with the technology practices applied in plastic manufacturing companies in Vapi, Daman and Silvassa, known as a plastic manufacturing hub. The undergraduate engineering program at The Plastindia International University (PIU) will incorporate all the components of the curriculum that has made U-Mass Lowell Plastics Engineering program an international success. The delegates also interacted with renowned industrialists to understand the educational needs of the Plastic Industry in India and incorporate those elements in the curriculum. The program aims to create a pool of skilled technicians/engineers who can think globally and implement expertise on the work floor that would be beneficial to the industry and economy at large.
To address the growing needs of Plastics & Polymer industry and its rapid expansion in Asia, Plastindia Foundation conducted a survey with a sampling of 50 key industrialists. The findings highlighted that majority of the employees are non-degree holders with an average work experience of 1-5 years. The industry is in dire need of a knowledge centre and short-term trainings to the technical staff.
As majority of the manufacturers are SMEs, it becomes difficult for them to obtain the industrial higher skill courses needed for the technical knowledge required for product innovation. Moreover, it is expensive and are un-available locally. Long-term training is not feasible to the manufacturers as they operate on lean workforce.
Plastindia International University will be the first institution in India which will teach Polymer Technology from Concept to Commercialization. The focus is on providing a knowledge based institution rather than a resource based one.
This survey data will be used to design and focus the educational curriculum needed to built skilled professionals in the plastic industry, staying within the set guidelines of the accreditation authority. Speaking on the occasion Mr. Bipin Shah, President of Plastindia Foundation, “ Our aim is to keep people first, followed by the approach and ultimate selection of the process, which keeps integrity of the environment and ultimately brings sustainability for future growth. Our efforts will be to create entrepreneurship, logistics and problem solving methodology. With our two associates, University of Massachusetts Lowell and University of Wisconsin-Madison we are taking the faculties aboard and under the guidance of these experienced faculty, our future is assured in the decades to come.”
