About Daikin Centre of Excellence
As part of the Skill India initiative, Daikin India has developed training centres for the young minds who can be entrusted with the expansion of the air conditioning industry. Daikin India believed that India needed proper training centres, where today’s youth get the opportunity to become industry leaders. This idea, led to the formation of Daikin Centre of Excellence (CoE). The CoE acts as a common facility and is aimed at nurturing young minds and harnessing them for the HVAC Industry.
The CoE showcases Daikin’s futuristic products & advanced technology, and create a strong brand advocacy in institutes. The facility is used for both student-faculty training as well as DAIPL staff/channel partners training. Here, students have an opportunity to do their Industrial Training with DAIPL and learn from the industry experts. The curriculum is focused towards enhancing industry-readiness of students.
Daikin collaborated with institutes to build, CoE(Centre of Excellence), a strong infrastructure for air conditioning industry and motivates the learners of today to be the leaders of tomorrow. The CoE created a schedule that imparts theoretical as well as practical skills training to the students. It is a new and one of a kind initiative taken by Daikin India in the air-conditioning industry.
So, with these many CoEs in India, what are we actually offering the students? We are engaging with the institutes at a micro-level in ensuring that the facility is utilized to the maximum and students learn and grow to become industry experts. Students are trained to understand the basics as well as the technology of latest air conditioning systems.
In line with the vision of LICET, to provide quality education to students, LICET signed an MoU with DAIKIN to setup a Centre of Excellence (CoE). The Centre of Excellence was inaugurated on 25th July 2017 by Mr. M.C. Sampath, Minister of Industries, Tamilnadu. The CoE was setup to enhance students training and development in the field of HVAC.
