Aerospace Engineering in India

Aerospace Engineering.. Introduction and Scope.

Aerospace/ Aeronautical Engineering is one of the most challenging engineering fields. It broadly deals with the design and development of Aircrafts and spacecrafts. Aerospace Engineering has specialization in the field of Aerodynamics, Structures, Propulsion, Avionics, Flight Mechanics or Control Systems, Computational Fluid dynamics, etc...

Taking a course on Aerospace engineering is equivalent to be a Mechanical engineer, Civil engineer, Electrical Electronics and Telecommunication engineer, Computer engineer and above all a good knowledge about Designing and Developing Aircrafts and space crafts all at the same time. But after a Bachelor's course in Aerospace Engineering a specialization in a particular field is important in a Master's or Research course.

The opportunities are infinite for an Aerospace Engineer. Aerospace engineers can be employed with government organizations like DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organization), HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited), NAL (National Aeronautical Laboratories), ADA (Aeronautical Development Agency) and ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization). There are many more companies in India who recruit Aerospace Engineers. Few of them are Airbus, General Electric (GE), Infotech, Capgemini, Saffron Aerospace, and many more.


B.Tech in Aerospace or Aeronautical Engineering:

A pass in 10+2 or equivalent examination, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and minimum 50% Marks in each subject.

M.Tech in Aerospace Engineering:

A pass with first class in B.E. or B.Tech in any of the following courses.
Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering ( Only for Avionics ).

One also has to pass an entrance exam to secure an admission for both and courses.
