Aerospace

Overview

Aerospace sector in India has seen robust growth and most big OEMs and service sector giants can be found in here. India is home to government organisations like Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), and private enterprises like Boeing, Airbus, General Electric, Pratt and Whitney, SNECMA, Honeywell, Goodrich Aerospace. Some are involved in Aerospace research and development, while others provide engineering services. Their already high annual average growth rate is likely to be boosted by the off-set’ clause included by Government of India in all major aerospace transaction. High competitiveness in the airline sector has forced the manufacturers to not only continuously improve their product but also introduce cutting edge technology in their products. With the available experienced person power and infrastructure in the areas of fluid mechanics, structural engineering and propulsion, the University will be able to support their requirement for advanced products.

Aerospace is a highly interdisciplinary subject where there is interaction between aerodynamicists, structural engineers, manufacturers and electronic engineers. In this situation, University gives an ideal platform for the students as they are exposed to different disciplines and thereby increase their breadth of knowledge in aeronautics. The department is staffed with professors with extensive experience in national aerospace projects, excellent infrastructure and has developed a reputation amongst students, parents, industry and research sponsors. The faculty of engineering and technology plans for producing Aerospace engineers who can compete with students from the best universities in the world.


Objective

  • To impart knowledge on aerospace systems and their sub-systems
  • To facilitate the understanding of underlying engineering principles of aerospace systems to explain their construction and working
  • To model, simulate and analyze the behavior of aerospace sub-systems systems to predict and improve their performance
  • To design and develop prototypes of aerospace sub-systems to meet the specific needs
  • To instrument and test of aerospace sub-systems for validation
  • To train students on commercial software tools to design, model, simulate aerospace sub-systems
  • To train students on design and fabrication of aerospace sub-systems
  • To provide opportunities for personal development and strengthening interactive skills with a feel for society and to pursue a long lasting career.

Highlights

  • Minor Programme

    An additional program in which students can pursue a study of choice alongside the main degree. Students can register for this in consultation with faculty. This program is for aspirational candidates. Our program offers Electric Vehicles as a minor program and is open to all the engineering students in RUAS. 

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors. 

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents.

  • Open Electives

    Students can choose from a multitude of open electives across faculties for credits. These are specially designed courses which offer a basic introduction for a holistic development.

  • Uses application-based learning.
  • Offers research opportunities.
  • Includes internship, training, and placement support with various universities worldwide.
  • Provides state of the art facilities in Aerodynamics, Micro Air Vehicles, Propulsion, and Aircraft Structures. 
  • Includes expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.

  • We offer accommodation in student hostels on our campus, and even offer third-party off-campus hotels where necessary to ensure students can focus on what matters the most. 
  • Our on-campus facilities include WiFi any time of the day, 24/7.
  • From a host of eateries and laundry facilities, we ensure that students have access to all facilities.
  • We encourage students to participate in co-curricular activities on campus which include sports and cultural events, both at a university level and a faculty level.
  • We help students focus on independent and sponsored research with projects and a dissertation.
