Coinciding with the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to India, an Indo-French Centre of Excellence (CoE) was inaugurated here on Monday to impart vocational training to engineers in electricity, automation and energy management.

Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron are on a four-day maiden visit to India since Friday.

The centre has been set up jointly by the French government, French automation company Schneider Electric and the city-based New Horizon College of Engineering.

"The CoE would help in strengthening and upgrading the knowledge and professional skills of teachers and students," Frederique Vidal, the French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, said on the occasion.

For setting up the centre, the French government had deputed a full-time professor for three years to train the city-based college's professors on automation and energy management at Schneider Electric's labs and then designed the syllabus.

Through skill development programmes, the centre will also help in preparing students to leverage disruptive technologies to further national growth, said Shrinivas Chebbi, President (Eco-buildings) - Schneider Electric, India.
