Svenska Institute of Technology is essentially formed to prepare young engineers and technicians for a bright future in maintenance of construction, mining and road equipment.
India is on the path of modernisation with rapid progress in infrastructure development. The investment in the infrastructure sector in India is pegged at Rs 1,80,000 crore. To meet this demand, more than 20,000 technically superior construction equipment are going to be used in the market. This will be accompanied by the increasing demand for highly skilled technicians and trained and qualified after-sales support personnel to handling the latest technology. Indian technicians have acquired their skills over years of handling construction equipment. However, the last few decades have seen the introduction of sophisticated equipment with electronic and computerised control systems.
