School of Metal Construction Skills
Welcome to the world of shaping MetalsDownload Brochure
Rise in infrastructure development and automotive production are driving growth in the metal processing and manufacturing sectors in India. The country also has a fair advantage in cost of production and labour. Under this rapidly expanding manufacturing sector in India, there is an increasing demand for skilled professionals.
The School of Metal Construction Skills in Bhartiya Skill Development University will offer a range of skilled courses pertaining to fabrication and processing of metal parts for component manufacturing integrated with the science and technology. The graduates will be trained to the highest level of quality standards under this professional industrial education under supervision of Swiss Trainers.
The course is in compliance with the Swiss Dual System Apprenticeship Education and Training. The School offers students a comprehensive training in different metal processing domains which include sheet metal fabrication together with different high end joining and welding techniques. The students will also be introduced to metal forming processes such as rolling, bending, forging, deep drawing etc. The core element of the training is on fabrication and welding various grades of steel and aluminium alloys for different structural constructions.
The school believes that there is also a need for academics and research in the field of metal construction and fabrication to develop pragmatic solutions that are accessible to our industrial partners to address critical fabrication problems. The school is presently offering B. Voc program but will gradually start with Master degree in Metal Construction Skills. With an apprenticeship cum degree program, one can start laying the foundation for his/her future.
The programs under the School of Metal Construction Skills are designed to:
Prepare students for various aspects of metal construction, including quality control, sheet metal working, welding, and material selection, so that they can be employed in heavy and light industries, as well as in repair and maintenance.
Meet certification test standards conducted by the Indian Institute of Welding (IIW) and officials from the American Welding Society (AWS).
Make sure that students can also start their own businesses and start-ups.
World class welding and plasma cutting facilities.
Industry scale shear, press brakes and cutting saws.
Newly established press forming shops equipped with cold forge and deep draw presses.
Newly commissioned powder coating shop for finish metal product painting.
100 % internship and placement support.
Experienced mentors from industry and academia.

What’s Happening in SMCS
Dr. Ritwik Basu was invited by the Research and Development Centre (KCTI) of Bharat Forge Industries to conduct series of lectures and training on advanced microscopy techniques and EBSD for their Engineers and Managers. The Lecture-Training session was organised for three days, 24-27 February 2020 and was highly appreciated by the participants. A meeting with Dr. RK Singh, Director of KCTI was also held to find all possibilities of collaborative PhD research.
On April 10, Mr. Datta Kuvalekar, CTO Forbes Marshall Pune, visited the university campus to see the facilities available on campus. A detailed discussion was held to understand the possibilities of working together. Mr. Kuvalekar appreciated the idea of getting students from the School of Metal Construction Skills to do an internship at Forbes Marshall Pune every alternate semester for a duration of six months. Mr. Kuvalekar invited faculty members of the BSDU to his facility in Pune. Dr. Ritwik Basu, Mr. Marcus Flepp and Dr. Shishir Bhaduri visited the Forbes Marshall plant in Pune to see their world-class production facility on May 4, 2019. The visit was primarily intended to understand how the students of the school can be engaged during the internship. A meeting with their team including HR was organised and discussion was also held to understand what other capacities collaboration between the two can be executed. A MoU was finally signed on 09 June 2019. People present in the MoU signing event were Mr. Marcus Flepp (BSDU), Prof. Shishir Bhaduri (BSDU), Dr. Ritwik Basu (BSDU) and Mr. Datta Kuvalekar (Forbes Marshall Pune).
Dr. Ritwik Basu, Mr. Marcus Flepp and Prof. Shishir Bhaduri were invited by the Technology Centre of Fronius in Pune on 07 June 2019. The invitation was formally arranged by Mr. Sasianand Parthasarathy. Almost half a day was spent for the visit. A discussion was held to understand how Fronius can extend cooperation to house a Centre of Excellence in the Campus.
Dr. Ritwik Basu took the initiative to establish under the School of Metal Construction Skills, an Authorized Testing Centre (ATC) and Approved Training Institute (ATI) as part of the National Welders Training and Certification Scheme (NWTCS) of the Indian Institute of Welding (IIW) India. Mr. Pabitra Kumar Das, Chairman of the Skill Development Committee of IIW India, visited the university campus on March 2, 2019. Finally, a MoU was signed in Kolkata on August 19, 2019 in presence of Dr. Ritwik Basu. The signatories present on behalf of IIW India was Mr. Parimal Biswas, President IIW India and Mr. Pabitra Kumar Das.
I am Maluram Kumawat, a second semester Student of the Metal Construction Skills school at Bhartiya Skill Development University. I am currently pursuing internship at Forbes Marshall Pune. For me this kind of education has been a very different experience. Our courses have more of Skill based component and theory is very less, which I like very much. Secondly my experience at Forbes Marshall has been really great. Due to lockdown we are not able to continue with our internship.

Intern with : Forbes Marshall Pune
I am Deepanshu Saini. I am in my second semester-first year in the School of Metal Construction Skills. I really appreciate the course curriculum of our degree program. I am also doing my internship at Forbes Marshall in Pune. I have learnt a lot about welding and fabrication in just 1 year. I had no idea about the course program before I joined this institute. I was actually joining BA program in some college in Rajasthan, but now I feel I made a good decision joining this course.
