BENGALURU: THE University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed universities across the country to introduce an under-graduate course in aeronautics from the coming academic year. The UGC issued the official circular in this regard based on a report submitted by an expert committee.  The idea of introducing an under-graduate  course in aeronautics is to address shortage of skilled human resource in this burgeoning sector that requires techno-scientific expertise for successful operation.  According to the circular, aircraft maintenance has been identified as particularly affected by shortage of skilled human resource and this merits urgent attention of higher education institutions. As a result, the expert committee has designed the template syllabus for BSc (aircraft maintenance) as a way of encouraging universities in India to come forward and offer this programme on their campuses under Choice Based Credit System. Along with the circular, UGC has also sent the draft syllabus prepared by the committee and asked the universities to submit reports within 30 days.-  Courtesy
