Bengaluru, India – Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) launched a workshop on IoT and Embedded Applications, the first training programme organized under the HAL-IISc Skill Development Centre (SDC).

It aims to train trainers who in turn can train additional trainees and thereby leveraging the multiplier effect. Three areas for training have been chosen by the joint HAL-IISc technical committee for the immediate future namely, composite materials, sensors & IoT, and manufacturing systems.
The HAL-IISc SDC was developed by HAL and IISc as a partnership to impart high-end skills related to the aerospace field and manufacturing-related sectors, in line with the objectives of the Atmanirbhar initiative. The Centre is in the institute's new 1,500-acre campus in Challakere, Chitradurga district, 225 km from its Bengaluru campus. Spread over 75,000 sq ft, the SDC will be equipped with modern labs, classrooms and an auditorium capacity of 250 people.
Experienced engineers, supervisors and faculty members of various technical institutes are the beneficiaries of these programmes. The course will cover both skill upgradation as well as new skills development. The uniqueness lies in their emphasis on learning by doing. Trainees will spend more than 50 percent of the course duration in labs, performing experiments. The faculty members are from IISc and HAL as well as from other leading organizations.
