New Delhi: The Karnataka government has initiated moves for setting up Asia first Aerospace University in Bangalore.

It will be a part of its ambitious Aerospace Park project to be set up in Devanahalli, near Bangalore International Airport.

Presently, only a few countries including the US, UK, Canada and Australia have aerospace universities.

“We will face huge shortage of skilled human resources in realising the ambitious plans in aerospace sector. We do not have a holistic organisation to provide trained manpower for this high-tech industry,” state Chief Secretary SV Ranganath said at a conference with a delegation of US India Business Council (USIBC) .

The state government would soon hold discussions with aerospace majors like Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Rolls Royce to seek their participation in establishing the university, a government official said.

 A formal discussion is also scheduled on Thursday in this regard with representatives of Cranefield and Wolverhampton University of UK who are in Bangalore to attend Aero India show, the official added.

Leader of the USIBC delegation Admiral (Retd) Walton F Doran expressed the confidence that it had all the potential to emerge as not just aerospace industrial hub of Asia, but even beyond.
