Azim Premji to train UK engineering students in Bangalore

London, Mon, 30 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 30 (ANI): Azim Premji, chairman of one of India's largest IT services firms, Wipro, has offered to train British students in IT, engineering and software development in Bangalore.


Premji would take third-year students from British universities to Wipro's headquarters in Bangalore for three months' intensive study and nine months on-the-job training with a view to returning them fit for work in their own country.


Premji, India's third richest man, said his carefully designed training programme in India would better equip students than the courses offered in the UK.


"We have sophisticated courses, a mixture of classroom and practical training, which will make them employable anywhere in the world," The Telegraph quoted Premji, as saying.


According to the paper, the British Government would pay around 25 to 30 percent of the training costs and the rest would be met by Wipro.


Premji employs around 3,500 people in the UK, of which around a quarter are British.


The business tycoon said that, "this can be improved with the training." (ANI)
