UG Course

• B.E - Aeronautical Engineering

About the Course

Aeronautical Engineering is one of the most challenging fields of engineering with a wide scope for growth. This field deals with the study and development of new technology in the field of aviation, space exploration, and defense system. This field deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space exploration and defense system.

A candidate must be an excellent team player who is self-motivated and has high technical and analytical skills. Owing to globalization and industrialization, enormous job opportunities await the best in this field.

SCOPE
Aeronautical Engineering has a wide range of scope like: design, development and maintenance of commercial aircraft, military aircraft, spacecraft, satellites and missiles as well as their components, testing new aerodynamic and aviation systems, quality management and improvement maintenance.

GENERAL GUIDELINES
Aeronautical Engineering Department includes four major streams:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Flight Dynamics
  • Propulsion
  • Structures

 

OBJECTIVE OF THE STREAMS
Aerodynamics:

  • To introduce the concepts of mass
  • Momentum and Energy conservation relating to Aerodynamics.  
  • To make the student understand the concept of vorticity& irrotationality
  • Theory of airfoils and wing sections.
  • To introduce the basics of viscous flow.

Flight Dynamics:

  • To study the performance of airplanes under various operating conditions and the static and dynamic response of aircraft for both voluntary and involuntary changes in flight conditions.

Propulsion:

  • To understand the principles of operation and design of aircraft and spacecraft power plants.
  • To study in detail about gas turbines, ramjet, fundamentals of rocket propulsion and chemical rockets.

Structures:

  • To study different types of beams and columns subjected to various types of loading and support conditions with particular emphasis on aircraft structural components.



CAREER OUTLOOK
Aeronautical engineers often work for large aviation companies like Airbus, Boeing and even NASA. These companies are constantly seeking trained engineers. In India, Aeronautical engineers are mostly employed by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) and the Defense Ministry. One can also look job available with the Civil Aviation Department, National Aeronautical Laboratory, Defense Research and Development Laboratories (DRDO) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
Aerospace engineers are in great need in aircraft industrialized divisions, airline industries and air turbine production plants or designs. They can also seek employment in different areas such as design, development, and maintenance as well as in the managerial and teaching jobs in institutes. This is an incredibly well paid job but it is also very demanding. In future the demand for aerospace engineers will rise because of their requirement in various sectors. There are lots of job opportunities available in India as well as in foreign countries.
