Aeronautical Engineering

About the Department
The department was established with an undergraduate programme in Aeronautical Engineering in 2008. Since then, the department has been actively engaged in diversified research and teaching. The department has endowed with effective application of engineering principles in aerospace field.

The department is well equipped with state of the art laboratories, 1 Cessna 152, 1 Cessna 172, 1 King Learjet and 1 MI- 172 Helicopter and several dismantled aero-engines, parts and components on demonstration stand for providing hands on experience on aircraft and its systems and to conduct various labs such as Aircraft Structure Repair, Aero Engine Repair and Maintenance, Propulsion etc. Additional instrumentation equipments are available for load analysis and a subsonic wind tunnel for Aerodynamics Lab.

Aim
To provide a program of the highest quality to produce leader and quality engineers who can address the challenges of the century and excel at an international level.



Objectives
  • To impart knowledge towards the application of engineering concepts and analytical techniques to problems related to aerial vehicles and aerospace industries.
  • To develop new concepts, instrumentation, methods, techniques and materials for use in aeronautical industries.
  • To keep the students abreast of new technologies in the field of aerospace and to make them an intelligent resource to look after the challenges.
  • To emphasize teamwork, communication skills, and hands-on laboratory and research experience.
  • To provide the engineering graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for high quality engineering work as well as advanced engineering research and to equip them with a broad intellectual spectrum in order to prepare them for diverse and competitive career paths.

Careers

According to the recent survey, "Aeronautical Engineering is one of the emergent areas with a lot of opportunities not only for employment but also for becoming entrepreneurs". Aeronautical engineers are expected to have employment growth which is much faster than the average for all other occupations. Frequent launching of various types of satellites by Indian Space Research organization (ISRO) is a live example of the opportunities available in aerospace sector. Students can look forward to many exciting careers in the manufacturing units of aircraft structures, rockets and missiles and even maintenance of aircraft in airlines.


Infrastructure

The department is well equipped with laboratories. The department is having Four Aircrafts {1 Cessna 152 (Piston Engine), 1 Cessna 172(Piston Engine), 1 King Learjet (Jet Engine) and 1 MI- 172 Helicopter (Jet Engine)} and several dismantled engines and Parts on stand for providing hands on experience on aircraft and its systems and to conduct various labs such as Aircraft Structure Repair, Aero Engine Repair and Maintenance, Propulsion etc. Additionally, equipments are available for doing research work in the area of load and stress analysis and a subsonic wind tunnel for Aerodynamics Lab.
