Skillicon reinforces Kvaser’s presence in India

25/08/2021 by Kvaser

Skillicon Technologies, based in Bangalore, India, has joined Kvaser’s qualified sales representative network. With expertise in CAN, OBD, ECU measurement, calibration and vehicle diagnostics, the company sells Kvaser and RA Consulting products and provides engineering services and consultancy to companies in the region.

Previously with RA Consulting in Germany, Skillicon’s founder Nisarg Nirmalkumar moved back to India in 2016. As a consultant to several large automotive companies helping to recruit staff for the blossoming industry, he witnessed the wide gap between the needs of local automotive employers and the students keen to work for them. 

While Computer Science and Bachelor of Electrical/Electronic Engineering degrees provided plenty of students with broadly suitable backgrounds, companies were spending too long and too much money upskilling new recruits with the necessary application-specific knowledge. Meanwhile, students keen to progress more quickly sought automotive-specific experience and understanding that would help their job applications stand out. 

Skillicon Technologies now bridges this gap, providing a Basics and Advanced course that trains students in areas such as sensors and actuators, ADAS, CAN and diagnostics. Simultaneously, it provides techno-commercial consultation to automotive and embedded system companies, helping them with testing, staffing, recruitment and training.

 “We think our tuition equates to one to two years’ experience of on-the-job training, giving candidates and their employers a significant advantage over those without additional training,” comments Nirmalkumar. “What’s more, because we use well-known tools, candidates are ‘up and running’ in the ECU development and testing departments that are increasingly coming onstream here,” he adds.
