    JIM was established through a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed in Tokyo on November 11, 2016. Under this, Japanese Endowed Courses (JEC) will also be imparted in existing engineering colleges to train 30,000 standard shop floor leaders and engineers over the next ten years.


    Forty students aged between 18 to 21 years have been admitted into the first academic year of the four-year program. The students will learn technical skills of Japanese-style manufacturing, covering nine main topics such as Motorcycle Assembly, Painting, Welding, Casting, Machining, Parts Control, Quality Control, and Utility Techniques.

    The students were selected through screening, an entrance test and counselling.
