Department Overview

Aeronautical is one of the most challenging fields of engineering with a wide scope for growth. This field deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space exploration and defence system. Aeronautical Engineering has a wide range of scope like: design and development of aircraft parts, testing new aerodynamic and aviation systems, quality management, improvement and maintenance.

The department of Aeronautical Engineering was established in the year 2009, offers 4 year B. E programme with an intake of 60.   The Department cherishes the hope that its graduates will be the leaders of tomorrow. The goal of the B. E. program in Aeronautical Engineering is to train the students in a broad based manner with equal focus on applications in aircraft engineering, rocket and space technology. The curriculum is designed to impart engineering knowledge in topics such as structural mechanics, aerodynamics, propulsion, and space dynamics. Further provision exists to acquire additional engineering knowledge through electives. Besides, the students acquire sufficient knowledge in mathematics, physics and chemistry under the category of basic sciences and in humanities and engineering arts. The importance of computational-skill enhancement through the development of one’s own programs as well as the use of advanced software is stressed throughout.

The department has equipped with the best infrastructure and state of the art modern high tech laboratory facilities such as; Aircraft Propulsion Lab., Aerodynamics Lab. (Low Speed Wind Tunnel Facility), Aircraft Structures Lab., Aircraft Simulation Lab. and Design, Modelling and Analysis Lab. (equipped with licensed software viz ANSYS and Pro-E) catering to B.E. Aeronautical Engineering curriculum as well as to undertake Research activities. The laboratories and workshops, detailed in the curriculum, have been framed to take up the challenges in Industry and focus themselves on research and development.

Graduates in Aeronautical Engineering can seek employment in civil aviation, defence R&D laboratories, space research organizations, and CSIR laboratories. Aerospace graduates are also preferred by software industries engaged in engineering-software developments. In addition to these, graduates can enter general fields like management and civil services. Those having a flair for higher education and research can pursue M. Tech. and Ph.D. Tie-ups with the pioneering organisation like National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Indian Space Research Organizations (ISRO) etc., have served as eye-openers on the complexities of real life problems, both for the students and faculty members. A dedicated project work is taken up by every student for two semesters during final year. The project work is aimed at high quality standards used in current industry practices.  Some Project works are also   supported by leading MNCs and defence laboratories involved in state of art research and development.

Aeronautical Engineering is a fascinating and high-technology discipline more than 110 years old, still requiring much more contribution from engineers and scientists to broaden its scope and application to develop next generation Hypersonic Aircrafts, fast whisper- quite Helicopters, reusable space crafts, Launch vehicles etc. Aeronautical engineering is an ever developing discipline full of exciting opportunities and challenges with several private players entering the aeronautical industry, the opportunities are going to be better and better. Job opportunities for an Aeronautical Engineer in India lies with government owned air service, aircraft manufacturers and research centers like Hindusthan Aeronautics Limited, National Aeronautical Laboratories (NAL), Aerodynamic Development Agency (ADA), Defense Research and Development, Private Organizations, etc. Concepts of Aeronautical Engineering (Aerodynamics/Thermal/Structure) is also applied to design and development of innumerable number of fluid flow devices such as Compressors, turbines, pumps, combustors, etc. Hence,many of the Aeronautical Engineers cater better placement opportunities in the private and public manufacturing sectors and thus contribute well for the development of the efficient products. Students also get ample opportunities to pursue their higher studies (M,E.\MTech\M.S and then PhD) after completion of B.E. Aeronautical Engineering at reputed institutions in India and Abroad with sufficient financial support.

The Faculty and students of our department are engaged in acquiring cutting edge technology and the excellent infrastructure facilities available in the department allows them to delve into pushing the boundaries of the state –of-the –art of technology. Autonomous status of the Institution is an added advantage to incorporate the latest subjects demanded by the the Industries and Research centers. Apart from achieving academic performance, the students are encouraged to take part in co curricular and extracurricular activities. Implant training in the Industries and Research centers which are indeed mandatory for all the students so that the teaching learning process will match with the Industry/Research centre expectations of the graduate skills. Students are encouraged to take part in seminars, national and international conferences, publishing technical papers in the reputed journals to outshine in the field of their specialization. Dedicated professors of our department play a vital role in imparting valuable knowledge, inculcating discipline, proving assistance and support to be successful in this fast growing domain.

My best wishes and greetings to all the students who are aspiring to become Aeronautical Engineers and take India to the forefront of developed nations.
