A technology centre to be set up by the Ministry of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) ministry at the Bangalore Aerospace Park on the city's outskirts would train about 10,000 youth in job-oriented skills, an official said recently.
The ministry will be setting up 14 similar technology centres at a combined cost of Rs.2,290 crore in as many states across the country to train a whopping 140,000 students in skill sets required for MSMEs, manufacturing and processing industries.
The state government has allotted 10 acres of land for setting up the technology centre, the first in the country, in the aerospace park near the Bangalore international airport at Devanhalli, about 40 km away and adjunct to the special economic zone.
“We have decided to locate the first technology centre near Bangalore, as it is also the capital of aerospace and electronic industries and home to many state-run defence research and development institutions and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL),” K H Muniyappa, Minister of State for MSME told reporters earlier.
The technology centre, with testing and calibration facility, would not only facilitate development of precision tools required for the aerospace and electronics industries, but also the required manpower, especially for MSMEs in the Electronic System and Design Manufacturing sector.
The technology centres will act as mother units and thought leaders to diverse sectors and space in which they operate.
