Project “Institutional Capacity Building for the Civil Aviation Sector in India – Aviation Diploma“ financed by European Union Grant

The MBA Aviation Management is designed to prepare those who already hold leading positions or who are aiming to do so to meet this challenge. The course contains elements of international management and leadership and is based on essential areas of aviation seen from the perspective of the sector’s key players, namely airlines, airports and air-traffic controllers. Students will experience important aspects of personal development and be instructed in the methodology associated with the aviation sector.

The MBA study programme is designed for current and future executives with an international focus who wish to improve their career chances. Typical participants will be those already working in the aviation sector for airlines, airports, air-traffic controllers, forwarding and handling agents, integrators, aircraft manufacturers, service companies and consultants.  In addition, the programme caters to executives in associations, high-ranking civil servants and specialists working for government agencies at the regional or national level. 
The target group can be extended to include managers from South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries. Especially the latter would benefit from the fact that the programme will be conducted in English and organised in two two-week blocks per semester.

The Indian power Sector is presently passing through a phase of transition of technology up-gradation in the area of Generation and Transmission of Power.  Several new Ultra Mega Thermal Power Projects are in the process of installation both in Public and private sectors  where advanced technology like  Super  Critical  Technology supported by the latest technology of Electrical, Control & Instrumentation systems etc are coming in a big way. The course contents of this one year training programme have been designed to fulfill the mandatory requirements of Indian Electricity Rules amended in 1981 to groom the students having the basic theoretical knowledge of Power Generation from their college with the latest technology of Operation & Maintenance of the Thermal power plants. After completion of the course, the Engineers would be eligible for operation & Maintenance of Power plants of Capacity 100 MW and above as the course is in line with the syllabus recognized by Central Electricity Authority (CEA).
The duration of the course would be 52 weeks having 2 semesters  comprising  class room sessions as well as on-the-job training. The students have to attend the on-job practice sessions in power plants, substations etc. Visit to some reputed manufacturing plants is also an integral part of the course. At the end of the course, 2 weeks Simulator training will be arranged in the Simulator having latest state of the art technology. To enhance the personal skills, some inputs  of management are also to be given to the students.

India is growing at faster pace with a GDP of around 9% for the last 5 years.  To sustain this GDP it is necessary to have the growth of its power sector even at a higher rate. 
Indian Power industry, being highly capital intensive industry, is growing at a very fast rate of about 10% per annum. The present installed capacity of Indian power industry is about 202979.03 MW. To keep pace with the GDP growth of our country Govt. of India has a mandate of adding about 75,000MW to 100,000MW during the 12th (2012-2017) Five Year Plan and about same capacity during 13th Plan (2017-2022).Human resource development and capacity building in the present power scenario demands a very comprehensive and pragmatic approach to attract, utilize, develop, and conserve valuable human resources. Training, re-training, and career prospects are some of the important elements of  human resource development. By the working group on manpower planning in power sector it has been estimated that there is a shortage of skilled manpower which is fast emerging as a serious obstacle to the Govt. efforts to expedite the pace of power generation capacity addition in the country. Technically trained manpower comprising skilled engineers, supervisors, artisans/technicians and managers is required in every sphere of the power supply industry. The capacity addition along with commensurate Transmission and Distribution infrastructure leads to an estimated requirement of about 7.4 Lakh additional personnel for construction and O&M during 12th plan itself.
In order to mitigate the shortage of trained manpower Govt. of India has already taken many initiatives for providing training and developing the required manpower but the requirement of trained manpower is so high that there is a need of training/retraining of fresh and in service engineers and groom them by providing them the required training inputs and make them readily available for deploying them in the Power Sector as per its manpower requirements.
Hence, there is an ample scope of making a carrier in the Power Sector for the Engineers who undertake this programme.
In view of this CBIP has  taken initiative and launched  52 weeks Post Graduate Diploma Course in Thermal Power Plant Engineering as training in Power Sector is niche area of CBIP:
 The objective of the course is to develop groomed manpower for the power sector having high skills and confidence in running a Power Plant. After completion of the course the students would be readily available for the Indian Power Sector for taking over the charge of Operation & Maintenance of Power Plant equipments.
 The course satisfies the mandatory requirements of Rule 3 of Indian Electricity (Amendment) Rules, 1981 and Indian Electricity Act, 2003.
The course is also open for the sponsored candidates from SEBs and Power Utilities (Public & Private).
The present course is for 2nd batch for PGDC in Thermal Power Plant Engineering.

The course will be conducted under the supervision of experienced faculty who were the main initiators of this program in Indian Power Sector. Sh. C.S. Malik, Director, CBIP formerly Principal Director, NPTI and Sh. S.K. Ghosh, Adviser, CBIP, formerly Director, NPTI would be supervising this course.

Certificate will be issued by  Central Board of irrigation & Power (CBIP) which is a reputed autonomous body in the field of Power & Water Resources having liaison with various Govt./Semi-Govt./Pioneer-Pvt. Sector Organizations including Central Electricity Authority, NTPC, NHPC, Powergrid etc.

CBIP maintains close linkages with various power utilities and reputed companies of Indian Power Sector. Most of the Govt. utilities, IPPS, T&D utilities etc and other reputed manufacturing organizations of the above said field are associated with CBIP as member organizations and prefer to depute their Engineers to attend the training programmes/Workshops/ Seminars at CBIP. Though there is no commitment for placement of the candidates, CBIP would try its best and exploit all the opportunities for arranging campus interviews through its good networking with all of the power sector utilities/companies including reputed manufacturers. Almost all the candidates of 1st Batch of PGDC in Transmission & Distribution System have been placed in reputed organizations like WAPCOS, Powerlinks Transmission Ltd., Skipper Electricals India Ltd., Noida Power Co. Ltd.
