Ford joins hands with Parul University to promote practical education
Prioritising and promoting practical hands on training, amongst students in the various technical fields of engineering, has become the main focus behind industry-academia relations. City based Parul University has been developing such relations with leading industries, which have been highly beneficial towards the academic progress of the students. As a result of such relations, the University recently availed a brand new Ford vehicle, which was presented by Ford India to the department of Engineering. The vehicle will go a long way in equipping the students with the essential practical skills related to the automobile manufacturing industry.
As a part ofcorporate social responsibility,Ford has been making countless donations of various equipment and vehicles to some of the nation’s established engineering institutions. The company was making these donations under the banner of ‘Taking Education Further’ by offering such academic aids, as a way of imparting the essential practical training to the students.
The passenger vehicleswere procured from Hungary and feature a left handed driving system which makes them ideal components for academic usage. The company entered into an MoU with Parul University, which facilitated this donation, and also guaranteed the specific usage of this vehicle within the University campus, to ensure the maximum benefit for the students. This Ford Figo will serve the vital purpose of being a tool for demonstrationsduring the students’ workshops, experiments, practical sessions and research work.
“As Parul University our main objective is to promote the practical application of knowledge especially within our engineering Institutions, and I am more than grateful to Ford Sanand for having a hand in making this a reality for us, and inspiring our students to take on the journey towards innovation,” said the University’s Provost,Dr M.N Patel.
