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.
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.
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

Redesigning Common Mind And Business Towards Excellence
Aerospace Engineers design spacecraft, aircraft, missiles and weapons systems. In addition, they are also responsible for assembling, maintaining and ensuring they function properly at all times. Some specialize in other important equipment such as air guidance systems, guidance control systems, propulsions, etc.
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.
