An Industry-ready Workforce in IndiaAugust 28, 2023 | Gaurab Majumdar, Executive Director of IPC India
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Higher education in many parts of the world still lacks a practical training approach and awareness of the latest technologies. For example, new college graduates joining the electronics manufacturing industry in India find themselves regularly making critical decisions that could have an impact on the end product. However, challenges confronted on the shop floor are not necessarily part of the theoretical curriculum of the university or technical institute where they received their education.
When young technicians and engineers join a company, they need time to thoroughly understand the production and quality processes. IPC is dedicated to making it easier for new employees to learn these needed skills. An office was set up in India in 2010 and has been instrumental in providing more than 13,000 certifications while connecting with more than 500 electronics manufacturing companies there. This has led to an initiative to train college students through IPC’s workforce development courses.
A Unique Training Opportunity
An important Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on Aug. 4, 2022, between IPC India and the Vidya Vikas Institute of Engineering and Technology (VVIET), in Mysuru, Karnataka.

Mitchell, IPC president and CEO; Sanjay Huprikar, IPC president of Europe and South Asia operations; and David Bergman, IPC vice president, standards and technology. The signing ceremony took place at the Integrated Electronics Manufacturing and Interconnection (IEMI) event, organized by IPC India, in Bengaluru, Karnataka.
