The New Age Makers Institute of Technology (NAMTECH), an education initiative by ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India (AM/NS India), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ITE Education Services (ITEES), a distinguished subsidiary of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) under the Ministry of Education, Singapore.

The Hon’ble Minister of Education, Government of India, graced the momentous occasion exploring the cutting-edge laboratories and engaged with students in a comprehensive tour.

Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of Education, said, “The collaboration between NAMTECH and ITEES Singapore is a commendable initiative that aligns with India’s vision for vocational education and skill development. This partnership is crucial in meeting the demands of our growing economy and ensuring a competent workforce for the future.”

The demand for competent technicians in critical sectors like advanced manufacturing, semiconductors, automobiles, energy, etc., surges in India, prompting ITEES Singapore and NAMTECH to collaborate in developing a world-class technical and vocational education and training (TVET) ecosystem in India.

The NAMTECH campus in Gandhinagar, equipped with state-of-the-art vocational training laboratories and ITEES Skill Qualification (ISQ) programs, is poised to transform vocational education in India. This collaboration also envisions the co-creation of institutions inspired by ITE Singapore’s renowned model, celebrated for TVET excellence worldwide.

Enrollment for the inaugural batch of ITI-certified and diploma engineer students for the International Professional Technologists Program (iPTP) commences in March 2024.
