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 transactions.

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. Aerospace industry traditionally has pushed technological boundaries in a bid to meet the ever increasing demand for faster, safer and cheaper travel. With the available experienced person, power and infrastructure in the areas of fluid mechanics, structural engineering, propulsion, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the University will be able to support their requirement for advanced products.

Aerosapce is a highly interdisciplinary programme where there is interaction between aerodynamicists, structural engineers, control system engineers, manufacturers and electronic engineers. In this situation, University gives an ideal platform for the students as they are exposed to different disciplines with artificial intelligence and machine learning, and thereby increase their breadth of knowledge in aerospace. 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 further development of Aerospace Engineering programme and compete with the best universities in the world and attract high quality graduates as well as teaching talent from all over the country and abroad.

Objective

  • Knowledge and understanding of the construction, working principles and functional requirements of aerospace systems with respect to their performance
  • Plan viable design specification according to customer requirements and evolve it to conceptual design
  • Develop, simulate, analyse and validate the aerospace conceptual design to meet operational requirements using commercially available tools
  • Demonstrate critical, analytical problem solving and research skill the domain of aerospace engineering
  • Develop a career in aerospace Engineering 
  • Practice Teamwork, lifelong learning and continuous improvement

Highlights

  • 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. 

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