Vadodara: Mr. A. M. Naik, Chairman & Managing Director – Larsen & Toubro, today inaugurated 'Knowledge City' - a state-of-the-art engineering campus at Vadodara.

Located at Waghodia, near Vadodara, 'L&T Knowledge City' extends across a 112-acre campus. The state-of-the-art engineering campus at Vadodara will meet the high-end design and engineering needs of the hydrocarbon and power sectors. In the hydrocarbon space, it will cater to the needs of the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors, and in power, design support for complete projects.

L&T expects to generate project exports revenue of over Rs. 2000 crores within five years, and will provide employment to 4000 - 5000 technical professionals in next four to five years.

The new campus will leverage our nation's strength in engineering design, augment the country's technology base and will provide a cutting edge to project-related businesses.  As an integrated campus, 'Knowledge City' will enable L&T to extend and further develop its existing capabilities in process engineering, product development, mechanical design and analysis, process evaluation and technology adaptation. The facilities will provide a growth platform for a broad range of knowledge-intensive businesses.  

The master plan for the L&T Knowledge City envisages a pioneering initiative in setting up a 'Institute of Project Management'.  The Institute for Project Management will develop leading-edge project managers across the domains of engineering, procurement, construction and manufacturing.  The faculty will comprise outstanding academics and project management professionals.
L&T Knowledge City has been designed and built to high environmental standards, incorporating technologically advanced systems for rainwater harvesting, waste-water management and the effective utilisation of solar energy.

L&T's achievements in high-technology areas have won the recognition of national and international professional societies and research institutes, as well as leading trade and industry associations.
