The aims of the NCC are three-fold
Development of leadership, comradeship, spirit of sportsmanship and the idea of service. To create a force of disciplined manpower which in a national emergency could be of assistance to the country. To provide training for students with a view to developing in them officer-like qualities, thus also enabling them to obtain commission in the Armed Forces.
Training - Types
To achieve the above objectives, the 4 (TN) Air Sqn (Tech) NCC provides two broad types of training. One is the institutional training and the second aspect is Camp training. The institutional training covers general subjects like drill, weapon training, civil defense, health and hygiene, lessons in leadership, fitness and basic knowledge of small firearms. Air subjects like the history of air power, principle of flight, air armaments, Radio/Radar are also taught to make the Air Wing cadets. Aero modeling is another favorite subject with the Air cadets. Air cadets of this technical unit can take on gliding also during their training with the NCC unit. The Camp training involves collective training, where the cadets rough it out in the open. Here, the cadets gain the art of 'Esprit de corps' while working in a team. The annual training camps are held in the months of May/June and December/January and incorporate social service activities. The Air Wing cadets are given the opportunity to attend the Vayu Sainik and Attachment camps.
The NCC aims to instill in the cadets a sense of adventure, team work and discipline through its various Adventure Training programmes. These programmes call for quick reflexes and toughness and enable the cadets to discover their own potential by overcoming mental and physical challenges. The Adventure Training includes a plethora of activities like para-jumping, para-sailing, hand-gliding, water-skiing, horse-riding, rock-climbing, mountaineering, trekking, sailing, micro-light flying and sky-diving. Thus, the NCC helps instill a high sense of discipline, morals and spirit of adventure in the life of students.
The NCC office is located in the NCC building inside the IIT Madras campus.
