Aeronautical Engineering

The Department offers a 4-Year full time B.Tech Degree programme in Aeronautical Engineering under APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University. Aeronautical engineering, as popularly quoted, is mechanical engineering done better.

The B. Tech curriculum envisages five elective courses in addition to the courses on basic science, humanities, basic engineering and core aeronautical Engineering. The prescribed core courses cover important and exciting areas of Aeronautical Engineering including Aerodynamics, Aircraft Structures, Flight Dynamics, Propulsion, Avionics, Aircraft Design, Rockets and Missiles, Aircraft Systems and Instrumentations, and Aircraft Maintenance. As a part of the curriculum, the students are given the best possible training in the modeling & simulation software packages that are widely used in Aerospace Industries such as CATIA, ANSYS and FLUENT.

The students will also be undergoing practical classes in Laboratory Facilities of the department including Experimental Stress Analysis Lab, Aircraft Structures Laboratory, Aerodynamics Laboratory, Fluid & Flight Mechanics Lab, Simulation Laboratory and Avionics Laboratory.
