AI’s CTE eyes deemed aviation varsity status

Hyderabad: National carrier Air India's Central Training Establishment (CTE), which is headquartered in Hyderabad, is planning to spread its wings to transform itself into a full-fledged aviation university with satellite campuses at Mumbai and Delhi.
"We are planning to convert CTE into a deemed university by 2020-21. We have already roped in Educational Consultant India Ltd (EdCIL) to prepare the feasibility report," CTE executive director (training) Amitabh Singh told newspersons here on Thursday.
He said EdCIL, which is expected to submit its report by May this year, will also guide CTE in the process of applying for deemed university status and getting the necessary approvals from the relevant authorities. In its aviation varsity avatar, CTE plans to offer full-time and part-time courses, including MBA courses in aviation management. It also plans to offer engineering diploma courses in various aspects of aviation as well as short term training courses for pilots, aviation security and cabin crew, among others.
