As part of its effort to promote the development of automotive engineering and foster automotive industry talent in India, GM will participate in setting up a product lifecycle management (PLM) education program with PESIT and PACE.
Since being selected as a PACE Institution in 2006, PESIT students have been paired with graduate students and GMTC-I engineers to undertake a project throughout their summer and winter vacations using software and hardware provided by PACE.
PESIT is currently participating in the PACE Global Vehicle Collaboration Project, which involves the development of a next-generation concept vehicle by 21 PACE Institutions around the world.
It is a matter of great importance that PESIT has been chosen by the PACE worldwide network as the first and only institution from India as a partner in the program.
Bringing PACE to PESIT is an extension of GM's commitment to India's automotive industry and the development of the next generation of industry professionals," said Sheila Sarver, Director - Engineering and Operations, GMTC-I.
