Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical engineering represents the branch of engineering that deals with the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft. The field also covers investigation into aerodynamic characteristics of aircraft, including behaviors and related factors like airfoil, control surfaces, lift and drag.

  • In recent years, aeronautical engineering has become one of two major and overlapping branches of Aeronautical Engineering, with Astronautical Engineering being the second.
  • If you’re fascinated by the history and methodology behind flying machines – from Leonardo Da Vinci’s early conceptual sketches and the Wright Brothers’ famous flight of 1903 through to the sophistication and progress of modern jets – aeronautical engineering could be the degree for you.
  • You’ll need being highly competent in mathematics and physics to apply – expect your competency in these two subjects to be rigorously tested.

What is Bachelor of Engineering [B.E] (Aeronautical Engineering)?

  • The B.E Aeronautical Engineering course duration is Four-years, which basically involves certain aspects of Aeronautics and its wider applications in Engineering.
  • Aeronautical engineering is the primary branch of engineering behind the design, construction, and science of aircraft and spacecraft.
  • Aeronautical Engineering course duration is 4-years, which completely revolves around specific planets named as Astronomy and Aeronautical Engineering.
  • Aerospace engineering field also covers:
    • Aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors
    • Airfoil
    • Control surfaces
    • Lift
  • The B.E Aeronautical Engineering aspirants mostly will be educated in the field of Designing of Aerospace, Understanding the culture of the materials and its other Engineering aspects related to the aerospace engineering.
  • These Individuals can also work in the Defense in the forum related to Research and Analysis, Exchange programs with other nations in terms of focusing on the enhancement of the Defense.
  • The B.E Aeronautical Engineering subjects include elements of aeronautics, basics of aerospace, aircraft structures, electrical technology, and machines, etc.
  • The keen aspirants towards acquiring an in-depth knowledge about aeronautics can opt for higher studies in Master of Technology [M.Tech](Aeronautical Engineering).
  • The course is very valuable and career rising in the space technology field.

Why Choose Aeronautical Engineering:
