An MoU was signed between Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI) and IG Drones to establish a 'Drone Center of Excellence' at ESSCI aligned with the terms laid by the newly drafted National Education Policy that has widened the scope for imparting knowledge related to Drone Technology under Vocational Courses for different age groups. NEP believes in including demand-based courses related to Drones as a Vocational subject to broaden the horizons for young children, facilitating their growth & improvement.

Under this MoU, both the parties agreed upon enhancing the training infrastructure of the institute with a common goal to make the future generations of the nation, skilled and capable enough to cope up with the rapid technological advancements.

According to a January 2020 PwC report, India is said to be the fastest-growing drone market in the world and is predicted to mushroom to $885 million by 2021. It is also expected to reach $1,810 million by FY 2026, growing at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 14.61 per cent.

Recent research by the global market intelligence and advisory firm BIS, also stated that the Indian drone market is expected to reach $1.21 billion by the end of 2021.

From surveillance to spreading awareness, disaster management to aiding search efforts, the Central Government has increasingly started deploying Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) a.k.a. drones to facilitate better governance. During the peak of the pandemic, drones have played a crucial role in controlling the situation in different ways.

Mr Om Prakash Das, Co-founder, IG Drones, Says --
The Center of Excellence will be powered by a High-End workstation along with Industry Standard Relevant Softwares to give a first-hand experience of drone flying and field training with safety gears. We also aim at providing performance-based placement support to the trained pilots.

Thus, it's important to educate the Indian youth with Drone Technology to empower them with essential knowledge and resources. The Center of Excellence is the best method to do this. By collaborating with technical institutes like ESSCI across the nation, the Drone CoE facilitates training the youth on how to manufacture drones and later use them for inspection, survey, monitoring and other purposes. The CoE plays a major role in enhancing industrial awareness among students and also provides placement opportunities in the same field, besides equipping them with valuable skills.
