Cummins partners BITS Pilani to upskill employees

Cummins India has announced a collaboration with the Work Integrated Learning Programmes (WILP) Division of BITS Pilani to introduce a culture of continuous learning and upskilling amongst employees through bespoke programmes.

Sponsored by Cummins India, the B.Tech and M.Tech programmes aims to entry-level and shopfloor employees with professional degrees, new-age power skills and industry knowledge to create a strong foundation in their career journey.

The partnership was first initiated in August 2017 with a pilot batch of 40 employees of Cummins India getting enrolled in the B.Tech programme. Since then, two batches comprising 85 employees have graduated with B.Tech and M.Tech degrees. The employees enrolled in both programmes are a diversified group selected from functions like manufacturing, engineering, purchasing, quality, marketing and supply chain.

Anupama Kaul, human resources leader, Cummins India said, “Our investment in sponsored education programmes for our employees includes flexible options to continue formal education. We cherish our collaboration with BITS Pilani for its unique Work Integrated Learning Programmes (WILPs) designed to provide a holistic learning experience to our employees.”

Prof. G. Sundar, director Off-Campus Programmes & Industry Engagement, BITS Pilani said, “We at BITS Pilani WILP constantly strive to build and offer programmes with curricula that are well suited to enhance the technical competencies required for organisations in various sectors.”

The work integrated programme structure and flexibility to customise the curricula to suit Cummins India’s learning needs is the primary foundation of the partnership with BITS Pilani WILP.
