IIT Kanpur develops course on drone technology
Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur has developed a course on drone technology. that would be taught at IITs in technical institutes and skill development centres in the country.
Course has been designed on the directives of the ministry of electronics and information technology, said the people aware of the development.
The ministry sees drone technology from the perspective of future and believes the move would help in quality supply of specialists in this field. “This is why the ministry has undertaken this task of taking drone technology to students at macro-level,” one of them said.
The task of designing the course was bestowed on two scientists of aero-space engineering– Dr Abhishek (he goes by one name) and Mangal Kothari. The duo has developed a two-year degree course in which theory and practical would be of equal importance.
The course also includes new technologies in making of drones. Prof Abhishek said the course had been designed keeping in mind the developing needs and the students. The course would shortly be introduced in the academic institutions.
The IIT Kanpur has been a pioneer in the drone development programme. The scientists have come up with smallest of drones equipped with cutting edge technologies apart from doing extensive researches.
