The 6th and 4th semester BBA students were taken to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited on an industrial visit on 15/02/2019. Due to security concerns, the students were not allowed into the functional departments but they had an exhilarating experience at the heritage aeronautical museum that included display of prototypes and real fighter planes used in the various wars fought by India. The students also witnessed a real mind boggling training session carried out for pilots and service men.
There was also an audio visual show that took the students to the manufacturing of aircrafts by the giant Public Sector Undertaking. It also showed the various strategic partnerships and alliances that the company has with various foreign companies. Innumerable engines manufactured by HAL were also on display which emphasized on the “Make in India” campaign. The students had a guided tour around different galleries that depicted the transition of the Indian space programme from the times of Vikram Sarabhai, Abdul Kalaam to the present programme of Chandrayaan.
The visit was well received by the students who have gained lot of insights into the functioning of one of the largest defence establishments in India.
