Airbus, NSDC sign MoU for setting up a Centre of Excellence for aerospace skill development

The initiative is supported by the Government of Telangana, National Skill Development Corporation, India & AEROCAMPUS, France
February 2017


Bengaluru. Airbus has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for establishing a Centre of Excellence for aerospace skill development in Hyderabad, together with the Government of Telangana, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), India and AEROCAMPUS, France, an Airbus press statement said February 15.

The signing was witnessed by Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and K Taraka Rama Rao, Minister for Industries & Commerce, Government of Telangana.

“This first-of-its-kind Center of Excellence aims to enhance the employability of young aspirants by imparting the required skills to them”, said Mr Rudy. “The Center will not only provide training on aircraft maintenance but also on aerospace manufacturing and assembling”.

“Telangana has taken a lead in setting up India’s first Center of Excellence in aerospace manufacturing. We understand the importance of skill development in creating a comprehensive and successful aerospace ecosystem. The Center will up-skill the local youth as per international norms and will also partner with global aerospace and defence majors in their ‘Make in India’ programmes,” said Telangana Minister Rao.

“We are sensitive to India’s ambition to have a thriving indigenous aerospace industry. This Center of Excellence will play a role in translating this ambition into reality by feeding the industry with a trained talent pool,” said Ashish Saraf, V-P & ‘Make in India’ officer for Airbus.

The Centre will come up at Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad and will train candidates ranging from high school graduates to experienced aviation personnel on aircraft manufacturing, logistics, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO), ground handling and special aviation processes.

It will offer short-term refresher modules as well as long-term Certificate and Diploma courses that will find acceptability within the industry. The Center is expected to roll-out short-term courses this year. The plan is to upgrade it into a university over the next five years.

The Government of Telangana will provide space for setting up the Center and arrange the initial seed fund for the project.

National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) will channelize the candidates to the Center. Together with AEROCAMPUS and the Aviation and Aerospace Sector Skill Council (AASSC), it will also ensure that the programmes comply with international standards and are certified. NSDC will track the progress of the project on a regular basis through its Skill Development Management Solution (SDMS).

Airbus will act as the industry expert to the project and help design the curriculum for the different trainings. It will provide inputs on the latest industry trends, play an active role in curriculum design, contribute in terms of visiting faculty and offer internship opportunities to the successful candidates.

AEROCAMPUS will be in charge of the operations of the Center and will lead the training and certifying of the on-site trainers and the implementation of a Quality Management System as a precursor to getting international approvals and accreditations.
