International Automobile Centre of Excellence (iACE)

The vision of the International Automobile Centre of Excellence (iACE) (https://www.iacegujarat.com) is to be the apex centre for skill development for the automotive sector in Gujarat, utilizing modern technology and systems. The iACE was incorporated by the Government of Gujarat in collaboration with Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), with a 50% equity stake each. The centre is a world class institute catering to ‘end to end’ training and development needs of the automobile ecosystem in India. The centre hosts the latest ‘state-of-the-art’ infrastructure and technical labs to provide hands on learning experience. The institute draws upon the expertise of industry-academia collaborations with leading Indian and foreign partners for knowledge and technological relevance of industrial learning.

Executive Summary

iACE was looking for a technology partner to help in designing and developing the courseware for a high quality industrial painting program since painting is an important aspect of any automotive industry and iACE did not have such a course in its program portfolio.
