About Us

An initiative by Government of Karnataka (GoK) to provide Skill Enhancement for Engineering Graduates / Students largely in Aerospace and Defence (A&D) domain in collaboration with Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) and Dassault Systemes (3DS), with Karnataka State Council for Science & Technology (KSCST) as Implementation Agency

What We're All About

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 Innovation & Technology Society (KITS), a Government of Karnataka enterprise along with Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in association with Dassault Systemes India Pvt Ltd.,(3DS) established the Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Aerospace and Defense 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.

Our Vision

Who We Are

"It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows."

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

CEAD’ sowing the ‘Seed’ of Technology

K-tech CoE A&D is aimed to provide right a mix of Theory and Hands on Experience in a typical Digital Platform having capabilities in Design, Simulation, Analysis, Manufacturing, Systems Engineering, etc., as part of Air Vehicle Development. Whilst this capability is focussed on Aero domain, there is significant potential to engage with Start-ups for typical Engineering activities, as the processes are similar.

K-tech CoE A&D imparts Skill Enhancement, Aerospace Domain Knowledge (Connected with a  complete product development cycle), R&D and Consultancy Projects, Creating Prototypes and other similar activities to Engineering Students / Graduates, Industry Professionals, Startups & MSME’s,  Academic  Institutions  and industrial houses on:

K-tech CoE A&D has Experienced Aerospace Industry Professionals with a dedicated Mission to “Skill Young India”
