Airbus signs MoU for setting up centre of excellence in Hyderabad

16 February 2017 | Bangalore


Airbus today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for establishing a Centre of Excellence for aerospace skill development in Hyderabad, together with the Telangana government, National Skill Development Corporation India and AEROCAMPUS France.

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

Airbus said in a release, the Centre will offer short-term refresher modules as well as long-term certificate and diploma courses that will find acceptability within the industry.

It said the Centre is expected to roll out short-term courses this year, adding, it planned to upgrade into a university over the next five years.

The Telangana government will provide space for setting up the Centre and would arrange the initial seed fund for the project.

Together with AEROCAMPUS and Aviation and Aerospace Sector Skill Council (AASSC), it will also ensure that the programmes comply with international standards and are certified, the release said.

The signing at the Aero India 2017 air show here was witnessed by Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, and K Taraka Rama Rao, Telangana Minister for Industries and Commerce.

He said that the Centre will not only provide training on aircraft maintenance, but also on aerospace manufacturing and assembling.

It will up-skill the local youth in line with international norms and also partner with global aerospace and defence majors in their ‘Make in India’ programmes, Taraka Rama Rao said.

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