Centre of Excellence in Aerospace & Defence to be instituted in Bengaluru

A Centre of Excellence in Aerospace and Defence at Bengaluru decided to offer specialized high-end training program for nearly 1600 engineers every year and the training will be functional in 3 months. This program aims to offer skilled training in Industrial Design along with other programmes to students and engineers.

An agreement with French multinational software company Dassault Systemes has been signed by the Government of Karnataka. The agreement conveys that both short-term and long-term courses in aerospace and defence sectors using 3D design and 3D digital mock-up software programmes will be taught to students as well s engineers.

Priyank Kharge , Minister of State for Information Technology (IT) and Biotechnology (BT)  mentioned that the courses will be offered to both engineering students and as well as practicing engineers. This will help them to take industry specific job certification courses which will be an added advantage. At first the courses will be made available to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) affiliated engineering colleges in Bengaluru.

The colleges are yet to be finalized.  Later on the courses will also be provided to Vivesvaraya Institute of Advanced Technology (VIAT) Muddenahalli, Chikkaballapura.

V Manjula, IT & BT Additional Chief Secretary said that various levels of training programs will be provided at the Centre of Excellence. The duration for the training period will be varying from three months to 2 years. About 1,600 people will be taught every year. Online courses will also be available.

VTU in alliance with Dassault Systemes is working out on the curriculum and the fee structure for the course. The total expenditure for the project is Rs 288.68 Crore and the Dassault Systemes is throwing in an amount of Rs 250.93 Crore in the form of software package, software updation, license charges, faculty and training.

Minister of State for IT&BT highlighted the current scenario where there is a severe lack of trained and experienced engineers in Defence and Aerospace. He claimed that the Centre will provide assistance in order to make capable professionals available in the mentioned two sectors.

The IT & BT Department also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Institut Aeronautique et Spatial (IAS), a France based non-profit organization. In accord with the MoU, for Aeronautics and Space sector, IAS will outline high-end training and skill development programmes, which will be taught at the Centre.
