New Delhi: In a first for a Central university, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) will be offering a three-year B.Sc (Aeronautics) degree in collaboration with Pawan Hans Limited (PHL), a miniratna public sector undertaking.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the academic collaboration was signed on Thursday by A.P. Siddiqui, JMI registrar, and T. Sridhar, PHL executive director (HR and administration), in the presence of JMI vice-chancellor Talat Ahmad and PHL chairman-cum-managing director B.P. Sharma, JMI pro vice-chancellor Shahid Ashraf, deans, faculty members and senior officials from the two sides.

 

As per the MoU, both the sides have also agreed to explore the possibility of launching B.Sc (Aviation).

B.Sc (Aeronautics) will be a dual degree course in which the graduation degree will be awarded by JMI and Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will issue certificate in aircraft maintenance engineering. 

The course will be open to both male and female applicants who have cleared 12th Board exams with Science and Maths combination.

Jamia Cooperative Bank Ltd will be providing educational loans to students from weaker sections of society to help them pursue the course.

“The civil aviation industry is growing at a rapid pace and the course will help in meeting the requirements of trained personnel not just within the country, but globally. India has made advancements in aerospace and satellite research, but there is scope for more research in the field of aeronautics, especially given the country’s topography,” Prof Ahmad said.
