Metro in need of qualified engineers, ask IIT to start metro course
With Metro rail services coming up across the country, Delhi Metro has shown the need for engineers specially qualified in this technology and has even written to Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry to launch such courses in the IITs.
E Sreedharan, managing director of Delhi Metro, said the post-graduate courses in various disciplines relating to Metro technology should be started in IITs and that at least 50 engineers should pass out every year to meet the demands in the near future.
“We have suggested (to the HRD Ministry) that IITs should start courses in Metro technology. It is not mere civil engineering, but we need (professionals) in signaling, electrical and air-conditioning engineering,” he said.
