Centre of Excellence for Tunnelling and Underground Space Engineering to come up at Delhi Metro Rail Academy Campus
The Delhi campus of the Centre of Excellence for Tunnelling & Underground Space Engineering (CETUSE) shall be set at the Delhi Metro Rail Academy (DMRA) in Shastri Park. This facility shall be an integral part of DMRA and is expected to be ready by the end of this year.
This decision was taken during the second industry interface meeting held under the chairmanship of DMRC’s Director (Works), Sh. Daljeet Singh. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the Indian Institute of Technology, BHU Varanasi had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in September last year to establish this centre at IIT BHU, Varanasi and DMRA, Delhi.
During the meeting, the progress of the training module formation was reviewed. The first cut of the draft training module is expected to be ready by April, 2023. Various industry players and experts have come forward to ensure industry-specific skill development by way of exposure to various machines and techniques.
DMRC is setting up this state-of-the-art training, research & academic facilities in collaboration with IIT BHU with an eye on skill development in tunnelling and underground space engineering where the industry is facing an acute shortage of skilled resources.
India is currently witnessing a Metro rail revolution with close to 800 kilometres of operational lines across the country. Another thousand kilometres of Metro are under implementation. In addition, other rail-based projects such as high-speed rail and RRTS will also require engineers trained specifically for tunnelling and underground space engineering. In such a scenario, this initiative will help in providing the necessary manpower support for these projects.
