About Us


‘Think’ and ‘Create’ instead of being ‘Brick-layers’


  1. Act as a bridge between Academics and Industry needs
  2. To develop the ability to ‘Think’, ‘Visualise’ and ‘Create’ in Aerospace Design and Development
  3. Provide necessary skills and state-of-the art tools to enable handling future opportunities in Aerospace with a sense of confidence

The Aerospace and Defence industry in India is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. The Defence-manufacturing sector in India is also on the cusp of exponential growth given the focus of Government of India on indigenous manufacturing of Defence equipment. The growth of the sector depends heavily on the availability of industry ready engineers/professionals who can be leveraged for project deployment with minimal on-the-job training. Keeping this in view, the Karnataka Biotechnology & Information Technology Services (KBITS), a Government of Karnataka enterprise along with Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in association with Dassault Systems India Pvt Ltd., is establishing the Centre of Excellence (COE) in Aerospace and Defence with the objective of skill development and providing industry with trained manpower to a thriving Aerospace industry in Bengaluru and other Aerospace hubs such as Belagavi in Karnataka.
