Aeronautical Engineering

 Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering:

Aeronautical engineering is a study about the design and systems of an aircraft. It involves practical and theoretical understanding of materials, assembling parts, testing and maintenance of aircrafts. Professional engineers working in this domain have to be licensed aeronautical engineers. The course also enables students to attain knowledge of advanced technology used in aircrafts travelling in outer space. Aeronautical engineering also covers disciplines like aerodynamics, avionics and propulsion among others. Students pursuing aeronautical engineering can explore opportunities in defense organizations, government research centers, aircraft manufacturing organizations and NASA, Civil Aviation Department, National Aeronautical Laboratory, Defense Research and Development Laboratories (DRDO) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

Aeronautical Engineering is the science involved with the study, design, and manufacture of flight-capable machines, or the techniques of operating aircraft. This course trains an engineer in designing, constructing, analyzing and testing of commercial or military aircrafts, missiles, and spacecraft’s. Aerospace engineers are responsible for the research, design and production of aircraft, spacecraft, aerospace equipment, satellites and missiles. They also develop new technologies in commercial aviation, defense systems, and space exploration. An aeronautical engineer can also design, test and contributed to the development of advanced technologies in the field of defense and space science.

The following are the Course subjects are involved in this aeronautical engineering:

  • Design & Dynamics of Autonomous Micro & Mini Air Vehicles
  • Fluid-Structure Interactions
  • High Speed Jets & Acoustics
  • Intake Aerodynamics
  • Missile Guidance and Control
  • Structural Design & Optimization
  • Transition and Turbulence
  • Unmanned and Autonomous Air Vehicle.
