Department of Aerospace Engineering was established in year of 2019 with an intake of 60, affiliated under VTU with AICTE recognition to meet the intensifying needs for Aerospace Industries.
Aerospace Engineering is the primary field of Engineering concerned with the design and development of aircraft and spacecraft launch vehicle, defense missiles and satellites for different applications.
Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering is the 2 sub domains of Aerospace Engineering. Aerospace Engineering curriculum consists of the four-year study culminating into eight (odd and even) semesters, covering 64 subjects are taught by well capable, qualified and industry experienced staff. Necessary infrastructure via laboratories, library books, necessary computer software’s have already been set up to enable students gain extensive knowledge and expertise in their subject of study.
Satellite Design, Missile Design, Artificial Intelligence, Cryogenics, Robotics, Spacecraft Systems, Space Vehicle Design are some of the technologically advanced subjects which student’s study in the undergraduate programme and these subjects have huge employment potential.
ISRO, BEL, GE Aviation, Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), Lock Heed Martin, Rockwell Collins, Rolls Royce, Accord, Mach Aero parts, Mahindra Aerospace are some of theMultinational giants who seek B.E (Aerospace Engineering) graduates and offers hefty pay package.
Developing the Department as a Centre of Excellence to Evolve Aerospace Engineers with Knowledge, Skill and Character For all Relevant Occupations.
Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
Computer Labs with software which are extensively used for product development, research and consultancy by various sectorsis the need of the hour. Accordingly, Computer Labs with industry centric requirements has been set up with the latest versions of both hardware and software. Software Programs such as ANSYS, CATIA, SOLIDEDGE and MATLAB areinstalled so that the students, in particular, can gain excellent handson experience and are confident enough to face industry’s multitude requirement. Asplendid, fabulous and a mammothbuilding have been recently constructed purely to house Aeronautical department keeping in view future requirementvis – a -vis expansion.
As on date approximately 2000 Aeronautical books has been procured to take care of the curriculum and students requirement. The department has embarked on various knowledge expansion programme and as a sequel to this the department through concerted and sustained effort with Indian Air Forcewill shortlyacquire Aero Engine and anAircraft. Further, towards achieving excellence, the department with the assistance of private industry, envisages setting up of Computational Fluid Lab, Drone Lab, a Research and Development center consisting of Aerospace computing lab, Aerospace Design lab, Aerospace Robotics lab, Autonomous Systems lab, Aeroacoustics lab, Structures and composites lab and GPS Lab as part of centre of excellence.
