Bangalore: With most engineers going in for IT and management careers, there is a shortage of quality aeronautics engineers in the country,a top official said.

"Today we have the capacity to absorb 500 aeronautics engineers annually for the next five years", Dr Prahlada, Chief Controller R&D (Aero & Service Interaction) DRDO, told reporters on the sidelines of a national convention.

Most engineers being churned out are opting for IT and management careers due to attractive remuneration, he said.

"We are not receiving core aeronautic engineers and have to do with engineers from other streams", he said.

He also said that matching salary scales to those being offered in the private sector, was one way of getting these aeronautical engineers to work for it.
