Aeronautical Engineering

Engineering [Bachelor of Technology]

Aeronautical engineering is the branch of engineering to be precise branch of mechanical engineering that deals with research and development of aircraft. It covers all the key aspects of aeronautics from design to development and construction to testing. The field also includes the investigation into aerodynamic characteristics of aircraft, including behaviors and related factors such as airfoil, control surfaces, lift and drag. In recent years, aeronautical engineering has become one of two major and overlapping branches of aerospace engineering, with astronautical engineering being the second.

 
If you're fascinated by the feel of flying and crossing the barriers of speed and history of flight from - from Leonardo Da Vinci's early conceptual sketches to the Wright brothers' famous flight of 1903 through to the sophistication and progress of modern jets – aeronautical engineering could be the degree for you Aeronautical engineering is the branch of engineering to be precise branch of mechanical engineering that deals with research and development of aircraft.

Application of Stream

Aeronautical engineering is the finest branches of engineering. It is emerging as one of the sought after branches to opt for engineering students. For getting admission in any course for aeronautical engineering students should have good command over mathematics, physics, and chemistry. They can choose this stream after 10th class.

 

Generally, the students can get admission in below three courses if he/she wants to pursue their career in aeronautical engineering:

 

  1. First one is the Polytechnic diploma course of 3 years duration which you can pursue after 10 or 10+2 examination.
  2. Second course if engineering (BE/B.Tech) of 4 years duration just after 10+2 examination.
  3. Third one is the post graduate course ME/M.Tech of 2 years duration after the completion of Under Graduate degree in engineering.
  4. Ph.D. degree courses leading to the Ph.D. domain with the duration of 1-2 years after the completion of PG degree in AE.

Specialization

The specializations of aeronautical engineering are as the following:

Electronic Systems

Aerospace Propulsion

Ground Vehicle Systems

Aircraft Structures and Materials

Structural Analysis

Transportation Systems

Aerodynamics and Fluid Dynamics

Structural Design and Engineering

Instrumentation And Communication

Navigational Guidance and Control Systems

Eligibility

The eligibility and admission process for the courses mentioned above are:

 

For B.E/B.tech

 

Candidates have to appear for JEE Main exam in order to get admission in IIT and NIT. Other Exams are also conducted by the different authority like OJEE and different other exams.

Some other state universities or private university have their own entrance exam.

 

For M.E/Mech

 

Candidates have to appear for GATE exam in order to get admission in IIT and NIT. Some other state universities or private university have their own entrance exam.

 

For Diploma/Polytechnic 

 

Some state universities or private university have their own entrance exam.
