Pune: University of Pune (UOP) has signed a memorandum of understanding with a Germany-based pilot training and flight institute to offer a two-year postgraduate course in aviation starting September 1.
The course, which will award M.Tech (Aviation) degree for students with eligibility of BE or B.Tech, envisages on site aviation training at the institute’s facility in Germany for three semesters in addition to a six month study at the UOP’s department of technology.
The students returning to India after their on site training at the flight school in Germany- FFL- will be asked to undergo tests by Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to secure an Indian flying license.
Talks with DGCA on the proposal were in progress, said Vice chancellor of UOP Vasudeo Gade. The degree would also entitle the students to apply for a European flying license on approval from the German aviation regulator, he added.
