An Aerospace University In Telangana
HYDERABAD: IT Minister KT Rama Rao has said that the State government is considering setting up an Aerospace University in the state. This university will be on a public-private partnership model.
He highlighted that a constant and abundant supply of skilled workforce is what makes Telangana a frontrunner in this industry. He also praised the ecosystem of Telangana and Hyderabad’s industry.
"We have also had in this industry tie-ups with renowned institutions such as Cranfield and many others, to offer need-based aerospace and defense-certification courses in Hyderabad at an affordable cost. TASK has also been instrumental in running training programs in this sector and we are also contemplating setting up an aerospace university with the help of a private institution on PPP mode. We have requested the Centre to set up a defense incubator. Though that has not come, I hope this will be a reality," KTR said at the CII’s Defence Conclave on Wednesday.
