The programme, named "On Track", will be held over three days at Bosch's premises in Bangalore. About 850 students and 50 professors from 30 colleges and universities across India have been invited by the company.

Utilizing simulators and product models, Bosch engineers will explain development and functionality of Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and ‘Start-Stop’. In face-to-face discussions they will also emphasize their personal contribution to these products in their day-to-day work and inform the visitors about professional and personal requirements for a career within Bosch.
