Aerospace Overview

About Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace Engineering is a branch of Engineering that provides skills and knowledge to design, manufacture and maintain spacecraft, aircraft, missiles and weapons systems. A large part of Aerospace Engineering covering a wide range of topics, including computer application, structures, mathematics, physics, drafting, electricity, robotics, aeronautics, etc. It also covers two aspects of engineering, namely Aeronautical Engineering and Astronomical Engineering.

Aerospace Engineering is considered among the toughest branches of engineering that has carved its niche among the students. However, once completed this course gives ‘wings’ to your career taking it to new heights.

Course Description

This course covers the core aspects of aerospace engineering and prepares graduates for professional careers in the aerospace industry (design, development, testing, and operation of vehicles and systems), as well as in other areas, such as research, management, technical development, and finance.

We aim to instill a theoretical knowledge of engineering science in addition to a solid base of practical skills, an understanding of design, comprehension of the commercial world, and competence in transferable skills (problem-solving, team working, creativity, and IT). These skills are taught using interactive learning approaches and using cutting-edge and industry-standard tools.

  • Our course has been developed in consultation with industry, covering aerospace content that is relevant to graduate careers and cutting-edge research.
  • Focus on the development of both theoretical and practical engineering skills.
  • Access to nationally and globally unique and excellent experimental and computational facilities.
  • Accredited course suitable for those interested in gaining chartered engineering status.

Programme Highlights

This course is intended to provide students with the skills necessary for a successful career in industry.  In addition, it provides a route into the postgraduate study that is tailored to individual areas of interest, so that students with a BE qualification can go on to apply for an M.E or M.Tech course in a more specialized area of Aerospace engineering or translate into a different engineering or technical discipline.

Completion of the course will give students:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of engineering science and a strong base of practical skills
  • The skills to begin a successful career in industry
  • Transferable skills, particularly team working, creativity and adaptability
  • A route into more specialized postgraduate study

Dr.M.Subramanian M.E., Ph.D.Professor & HOD
Aerospace 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.MTechM.S and then PhD) after completion of B.E. Aeronautical Engineering at reputed institutions in India and Abroad with sufficient financial support.

Duties of an Aerospace Engineer include:

  • Developing new technologies for use in spacecraft, aviation and defense systems
  • Designing, assembling and testing of aircraft and aerospace products
  • Examine damage or malfunction in equipment to find our possible reason and offer the solution
  • Assessing the cost and feasibility of new projects proposed to be undertaken
  • Determining quality standard acceptance criteria for design methods, quality standards, sustainment after delivery, and completion dates
  • Evaluating that the project or the product meets engineering principles, safety norms, customer requirements and environmental challenges
  • Manufacturing aircraft and individual components in coordination with the design team.
  • Aerospace Engineers take on specialized areas of functioning such as software engineering, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, for automation and guidance purposes, aerodynamics or propulsion systems.
