Young engineering graduates from core engineering subjects have a reason to smile now. According to the experts Aerospace and Defense industries are going to create a huge employment in coming years. Experts said that with the increased demand for the indigenous production of defense products, opportunities for the youth are going to shoot up rapidly.
Elaborating on the opportunities and employment in the industry DRDL director K Jayaram said that by 2027 India was poised to attain self-sufficiency in defense industry. He was speaking to media on the last day of three day national seminar on Non-Destructive Evaluation (testing) held at HICC, Hyderabad.
He said that the Union government has taken initiatives to boost the indigenous defense industry for global expansion.

He said, “Government wanted us to manufacture our own defense equipment here, to achieve self-sufficiency and also to boost exports from this sector.”
Stating that most of the parts of air crafts (civilian and defense) were being produced at DRDL these days, he said that Hyderabad and Bengaluru would emerge as the hubs for aerospace equipment manufacturing industry.
Emphasising on the NDT technologies he said, “NDT would play a major role not only in aerospace industry which uses it to produce high end products, but also in other industries including healthcare.”
Jayaraman called upon the engineering graduates to pursue higher education so that they can be accommodated in the industry. He said that DRDL goes for NITs and IITs for potential candidates and at the same time prefers higher qualifications and practical exposure from other institutions also.
Seminar co-chairman J R Joshi on this occasion said that Indian Society for Non-Destructive Testing would be conducting certificate courses for the core group engineering graduates to train them for the NDT industry.
He said, “Engineering graduates of mechanical, metallurgy, aeronautics and electronics would be trained on the newer aspects of NDT technologies, their usage and potential in the industry.”
He further said that they would be conducting orientation programs for the engineering pass-outs in association with Telangana Academy of Skill and Knowledge (TASK).
INST Hyderabad chapter chairman P Mohan said that nearly 800 to 1,000 delegates from across the country have participated in the seminar. As many as 70 exhibitors from 16 different countries have put up their stalls which saw a foot fall of 10,000 visitors during the conference. Exhibitors have generated huge revenues during the seminar.
