What is NAMTECH?

New Age Makers’ Institute of

Technology (NAMTECH) is an

education initiative of ArcelorMittal

Nippon Steel India (AM/NS India).

With an increasing need to bridge

the gap between industry

requirements and the conventional

education system within India,

NAMTECH seeks to transform the

Indian engineering and technology

education landscape.

We are collaborating with the

industry in reshaping education and

learning. NAMTECH aspires to

enable a new era where the 'world

of learners' and 'world of work' are

more aligned.

By developing future-shaping

competencies in learners,

NAMTECH fosters innovation

and empowers the next generation

of industry leaders for smart

manufacturing and core sectors like

Energy, Transportation, Materials,

and Infrastructure. Our learners will

be provided with an unparalleled

learning experience. We aim to

equip India’s engineering talent,

who will, in turn, help

to accelerate India’s

economic progress.

NAMTECH’s value proposition

of ‘Inspiring Humane Capital’

is based on these three pillars:


Learning by Doing

Immerse learners in our highly

experiential program designed for more

than just learning new technologies. It

aims at understanding the real-world

impact and finding marketplace




Moving away from traditional

pedagogy to harness the power of

technology and solve the world’s most

pressing problems.


New Life Habits

New Life Habits are a lens through

which we see the immersive

experiences and activities we create for

our learners. We call them Activity and

Creativity; Growth and Nourishment;

Restore and Rejuvenation; Connection

and Meaning.

Message from

Director General

Arunkumar Pillai


It gives me immense pride and

pleasure to introduce you to our

55 engineer-learners from the inaugural

2023 batch of our International

Professional Masters’ Program (iPMP) in

Smart Manufacturing. The iPMP is the

first one-year Professional Masters’

Program for engineers in the country that


them well versed in the application of

Manufacturing and Industry 4.0

technologies. We have trained our

learners to be problem-solvers and

expect them to lead digital transformation

initiatives in the companies they join.

Our confidence in our learners stems from

the fact that they have been trained in an

experiential pedagogy and assessed

thoroughly for the competencies,

companies need in their workforce.

NAMTECH has invested in the best

training infrastructure in the form of

industry-grade labs and workshops, some

of which are amongst the first in the

country. Our faculty is a healthy mix

of industry and academia. The current

batch of learners have been trained by

NAMTECH resident faculty, industry

faculty from FESTO, Schneider and

international faculty from our US,

Singapore, and European academic

partners. Our program is global in nature

while being relevant for Indian industry.

NAMTECH endeavours to make

manufacturing an exciting career for

the youth of India. Our focus has been

to expose our learners to endless

possibilities of engineering through

experiential learning. Towards that

we have meticulously curated every

element of the institution and its

programs with inputs from corporate

and academic partners. Our programs

begin with the you - the industry (inputs

on competencies for our curriculum) and

end with you (our learners being placed

with you and contributing to your plans

in the shortest possible time).

Please find enclosed brief profiles of our

learners. We would be glad to connect

you to them, so that you can interact

and know them better. We believe we

are doing our best to create this new-age

engineering workforce and request you

to collaborate with us by giving them

opportunities to work with you.

Together we can contribute to fulfil

the national mission to create

world-class techno-managers for

the manufacturing sector.
