Course programme

BE in Aeronautical Engineering

The course develops the principles of engineering, then moves on to topics such as aircraft structures, aerodynamics, aircraft design and control. The broader personal skills such as computer literacy, communication and presentation skills that are essential to a successful professional engineer and manager are provided afterwards. During the course of study the student selects subjects such as structural dynamics, aero elasticity and computer aided engineering for manufacture of air crafts.
Aeronautical engineering graduates work in areas of the aircraft and airline industries. They also work in other high-tech industries such as car manufacture, offshore drilling and exploration projects.
Aeronautical engineers should possess a high degree of excellence in design capability as well as in maintenance of aero plane engine and other accessories. While the design engineering can be confined within the class rooms, maintenance engineering requires a substantial input of several man hours for practical sessions to gain expertise in keeping these machines air worthy and safe. The demand for suitably qualified aeronautical engineers is very high. So the academic institutions engaged in this filed should rise up to the occasion to meet this emerging requirements and contribute their share of participation in the social and economic growth of our nation.
The trend of demand for aviation engineers is going to gain further momentum by the rising air travel and cargo transport trends in future. While national economy is expected to grow at the rate is 9 %, the volumes of air traffic and cargo transports are bound to increase at similar rates. The domestic and international airlines corporations are capitalizing this increased demand. Due to the ‘Open Sky Policy' promulgated by the Government of India, leading domestic and international airlines corporations have shown keen interest in this area now. New entrants are already in the spree of stiff competition. The latest entrant is Ub's King Fisher. Official sources reveal that more than eight leading airlines including Singapore Airlines (SIA) and its subsidiary silk Air, Malaysian Airlines (AS), Dubai- based Cathay Pacific, Gulf Air and Lufthansa have applied to the Government of India for permission to operate either additional flights or bring in larger aircrafts. A few more international airlines are also likely to apply for permission for expanding their activities. These factors reveal the height to which aeronautical engineering can grow during the immediate future.
