Aerospace-giant Boeing inaugurated its India Engineering & Technology Center campus in Bengaluru with an investment of ₹1,600 crore ($200 million). Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 43-acre campus, marking Boeing’s largest investment outside the US.

The facility will shape the global future of aviation by developing the next generation of aerospace solutions for the world in both civil and defense markets.

In addition, it has also expanded its engineering and R&D talent to the largest number of employees in any country outside the United States, crossing 6,000 as of December 2023.

The program will provide opportunities for girls and women from across India to learn critical skills in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields and train for jobs in the aviation sector.

For young girls, the program will create STEM labs at 150 planned locations to help spark interest in STEM careers. In addition, it will also provide scholarships to women who are training to be pilots.

We are thrilled for PM Modi to have personally launched the Boeing Sukanya Program. Together, we will help expand opportunities for women across India to pursue careers and leadership positions in the aviation sector.
