Following an IAS mission carried out in India this spring and in the frame of the partnership established with Dassault Systèmes and the State of Karnataka during the 2017 Aero India Air show, IAS contributed to the ‘Center of Excellence of Aerospace & Defence’ project. This project is designed to specialize final-year students in the aeronautic engineering through a professionalizing approach. These students come from various colleges affiliated to the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). The Dassault Systèmes excellence center curently offers two training programs, ‘Foundation’ and ‘Advanced’, lasting one and four months respectively.
IAS took part in the ‘Advanced’ program carried out in Bangalore, implementing the ‘Advanced Aerodynamics’ module led by partners from its research and industry expert network. Some fifteen students from the VTU attended this module from the 12th to the 15th of December. In 2018, IAS will implement a second module within the ‘Advanced’ program, addressing air-conditioning systems.
