"India has the largest number of youth population and many of them are interested to acquire knowledge to do something new. This has attracted us to concentrate more on India than other countries," said Dieter Markanic, senior scientist of Endress+Hauser.
He was addressing a press conference here at Computer Science and Information Technology Department (CS and IT) of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU) on the sideline of a technical training programme.
S Sriram, president and director of Endress+Hauser (India) Automation Instrumentation Pvt Ltd and head of CS and IT Dr K V Kale and Dr R R Manza were also present.
Dieter Markanic further said that the five-day training programme at BAMU is a step towards our goal concentration. The Endress+Hauser company signed an memorandum of understanding (MoU) with BAMU in October last year to provide scholarship to 10 students, each of them will get Rs 25,000 per annum.
He said that they have found that students in certain European countries just get coaching from the experts, but they hardly do anything, on the contrary, Indian students are more attentive and practical so they learn finer tips from experts.
N Sriram said that they are collaborating with the universities like BAMU to spread knowledge to bridge the gap between industries and academics.
The five-day training got off on Monday at the CS and IT Department. Vice chancellor Dr Vijay Pandharipande inaugurated it. Dieter Markanic is guiding on 'Pressure Measurement in General,' Sensor Types, Gauge Pressure, Differential Pressure, Hydrostatic Pressure. Another scientist of the company Peter Kraus will also guide participants on 'flow measurement technologies' in the training programme which concludes on July 12.
