The course is developed and being supplied on the college now with the target of assembly the burgeoning ability wants of India’s fast-growing defence sector.
The college seeks admission for the educational 12 months 2021-22 from engineering college students with undergraduate levels. Since Defence Technology is a multi-disciplinary area, college students from a variety of engineering streams – from chemical engineering to pc science, can apply, a college assertion mentioned right here.
M. Tech. in Defence Technology programs has been designed to produce postgraduates who could have the required theoretical and experimental data, expertise and aptitude in numerous defence programs and up to date applied sciences to perform R&D. The program will likely be based mostly on class lectures and major thesis work, it mentioned. During this system, the scholars will likely be given the chance to do their major thesis work at DRDO labs, defence PSUs, and personal defence industries, it mentioned.
According to the college assertion, India’s defence sector is quick increasing with the central authorities persevering with its emphasis on defence-indigenisation to make the nation, at present the world’s third-largest importer of weapons and defence gear, self-reliant. Hence, the home defence market is booming and the defence business in the general public and the personal sector are on the hiring spree, it mentioned. A specialised program like the present one is anticipated to create a big pool of gifted workforce for the defence sector, and to give a fillip to the startup ecosystem in the defence sector, it added. On the launch of M.Tech in Defence Technology, G Satheesh Reddy, Chairman, DRDO, mentioned there may be an pressing want to develop the analysis base for creating superior know-how and for accelerating India’s tech self-reliance in defence. “Amrita has been working with DRDO on most of the superior applied sciences – notably in the defence R&D. I’m certain that the college will likely be a fountainhead of expertise for the sturdy defence R&D, and manufacturing ecosystem for the defence business in the nation,” he mentioned.
P Venkat Rangan, Vice-Chancellor of Amrita University, mentioned their imaginative and prescient is to contribute to nation-building by providing high quality greater schooling in the fields of strategic significance to the nation in engineering, drugs, schooling, and social sciences.
