Tata Steel to set up a polytechnic at Jamshedpur in collaboration with NTTF, Bangalore

Jamshedpur, January 06, 2002

Tata Steel has decided to set up a world class Polytechnic in Jamshedpur in collaboration   with  a  well known technical training  organisation, Nettur Technical Training Foundation(NTTF), of Bangalore.

NTTF has vast experience in the field of technical training and are already running over a dozen such institutes where students are awarded diplomas in numerous  technical  discipline. They also  run    Post  Diploma  and Post Graduate courses in some disciplines.

The Managing Director of NTTF Mr. N. Reguraj came to Jamshedpur and an MOU was signed on 1.1.2003 between Tata Steel and NTTF. The polytechnic will be known as R D Tata Technical Education Centre and  will be   established in the premises presently occupied by R D Tata High School. This   Polytechnic  will  primarily be meant for the children of Tata Steel, and   outsiders  will be admitted only if all the seats are not filled up by employees' children.

The  R  D  Tata    Technical  Education  Centre  will  initially  have three disciplines  namely, Tool & Die Making, Electronics, and Mechatronics. All these three branches are in such high demand that almost hundred percent of the   students   from  other Institutions of NTTF get placed in Industries by the time they finish their training.

The  institute  will  have 30 (thirty) seats in each of the three branches, i.e.  a  total  of    90 (ninety)  students will be admitted every year. The selection will be through a common entrance examination which NTTF conducts on an All India basis for admission to it's Institutes.

This  initiative has been taken up by Tata Steel to increase the employment potential of the children of its employees.
