Wish to be the next Kalpana Chawla or Sunita Williams…. Aernautics/Aerospace is the way to go.

Aerospace engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to the design, development, and implementation of systems or vehicles that travel above the surface of the earth. The vehicles may include a variety of aircraft and spacecraft such as low-speed propeller-powered aircraft, high-speed jet-powered aircraft, remotely piloted vehicles, micro air vehicles, hovercraft, and helicopters, along with space related vehicles and systems that include rockets, spacecraft, space stations, planetary rovers and various specialty equipment such as heat shields, and other protective and deployment devices.

Courses include:

  • Aerospace Vehicle Performance, Space Flight, Aerodynamics, Aerospace Structures, Stability & Control, Propulsion, Senior Design Project.
  • The senior design project in aerospace engineering is a year long team activity involving hands-on UAV or space systems design, fabrication, and testing. A written report and presentation are included.
  • The Undergraduate Catalog shows a listing of Aerospace Engineering courses, and the degree audit shows the curricula requirements for this major. If you are interested in expanding your career options, consider double-majoring and/or adding a minor.

Duration of course:
Aeronautical Engineering BE / B.Tech course is of
4 years, and the diploma courses can be a period of 2-3 years.
