IIT Kanpur Signs MoU With Indian Air Force For Educational Collaboration

The Air Vice Marshal Harjinder Singh Chair of Excellence will promote teaching, research and technology development in Aerospace technologies, Aircraft Structural Integrity & Aircraft Health Monitoring

The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and the Indian Air Force have joined forces in their efforts to develop strong technologies in the field of Aerospace Technology, both academically and via research. On September 8, 2021, at the Air Force Headquarters in New Delhi, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Indian Air Force and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur to mark the start of the cooperation.

The partnership's purpose is to build long-term relationships for academic and research-based exchanges and technical information exchange in order to stimulate knowledge growth and promote breakthrough breakthroughs in the field of Aerospace Technology. This important collaboration between the IITK and IAF will open the way for new frontiers and enhance the AtmaNirbhar Bharat Mission, paving the road for a self-sufficient India.

The collaboration would establish a pool of think tanks among IAF personnel with strategic expertise and intellectual talents. These officers' experience and skill development would benefit the country in a variety of ways. Through contact with IITK faculty members, it would be possible to showcase innovative technological interventions and raise knowledge among IAF officers about how to handle their difficulties.

Prof Abhay Karandikar, Director IIT Kanpur said “We are proud to be associated with the Indian Air Force for collaboration in research and training. We are hopeful that the Chair of Excellence will set new benchmarks in this space with path breaking research initiatives.”
