Mitsubishi Electric India’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) extends to skill development and knowledge-sharing in the semiconductor industry.
Mitsubishi Electric has been actively promoting its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives in India, focusing on skill development, community welfare, healthcare, and environmental conservation. These efforts align with the Government of India’s initiatives and are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Over the years, being at the pinnacle of Semiconductor industry, Mitsubishi Electric India has been supporting the diverse production and manufacturing needs through its Electronic and Electrical products and solutions. Along with the widespread operation, comes the responsibility of practical learning and knowledge about the modern techniques and technology of Semiconductor devices.
In the company’s vision to spread out the information and practical knowledge about the function and application of Semiconductors, Mitsubishi Electric Semiconductor & Devices department extends continuous support to the semiconductors and devices lab project across the country.
In the initial phase of this philanthropic project, two institutions of technical education were supported with the educational material and advanced training methods. Moving a step ahead towards the second phase, the company prepared educational kits and equipment which were provided to the three technical institutions; Indian Institute of Technology located in Delhi, BMS College of Engineering located in Bengaluru and Institute of Technology, NIRMA University located in Ahmedabad to set the practical knowledge of semiconductor devices as a literary technical project across institutions of India that has benefited around 700 students from these colleges.
The educational material prepared by semiconductors & devices department includes IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor Module), SiC (Silicon Carbide) Module, IPMs (Intelligent Power Modules), DIPIPMs, DIPIPM (Dual In Line IPM) Evaluation PCBA with controller, IGBT Gate Drivers, Application notes, etc. which have been supplied at the labs of the three colleges. In its endeavour to give it back to the society, the company adapted this partnership to bring technological upliftment in India which can be achieved through the CSR initiative of educating the youth and helping them get familiar with technical advancements of the Semiconductor industry.
Inauguration of the Power Semiconductor devices set-up at the lab of these institutions was done by Mr. Hitesh Bhardwaj, General Manager, Semiconductor and Devices division, Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt. Ltd.
