The Mas­ter Blaster’s Car­nama

Society - - PRIVILEGED INFORMATION -

SACHIN TEN­DULKAR took his pas­sion for cars to the next level by as­sem­bling a BMW en­gine and trans­mis­sion along with the stu­dents of the Col­lege of En­gi­neer­ing of Anna Univer­sity in Chen­nai re­cently. The oc­ca­sion was the launch of a tech­ni­cal skilling ini­tia­tive called ‘Skill Next’ at the BMW Group Plant Chen­nai. Skill Next aims to present an op­por­tu­nity for en­gi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal stu­dents to get hands-on train­ing on ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies of BMW en­gine and trans­mis­sion. For this pur­pose, the BMW Group In­dia will reach ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes and stu­dents in every state and union ter­ri­tory in In­dia and pro­vide 365 BMW en­gine and trans­mis­sion units at no cost. “I strongly feel that ini­tia­tives like Skill Next will pro­mote de­vel­op­ment of au­to­mo­tive en­gi­neer­ing skills in our coun­try. It is an op­por­tu­nity for tech­ni­cal stu­dents in every state and union ter­ri­tory to get di­rectly trained on BMW en­gine and trans­mis­sion. I could have never played cricket by just read­ing about it, I had to be hands-on with the game. Sim­i­larly, this ini­tia­tive will make it eas­ier for the stu­dents to un­der­stand au­to­mo­tive tech­nol­ogy through first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence,” Sachin, who is very fond of long drives at night, opined.
