Department of Aeronautical Engineering
About The Department
The Department of Aeronautical Engineering was established in the Year 2014 with an intake of 60 students for undergraduate program. The Department has full pledged laboratories as per the norms of the university. The department has established and access to a wide range of industry-standard experimental facilities such as Low Speed Sub Sonic Wind Tunnel, well equipped Aircraft Propulsion, Structures, Energy Conversion, Fluid Mechanics, Measurement & Metrology and Material Testing Lab, Computer Labs with ANSYS, CATIA, SOLIDEDGE and MATLAB software which have been extensively used for research and consultancy for various sectors.
The prestigious department is focusing on conducting co-curricular activities like Seminars, Workshops, Project Exhibitions, Industrial Visits, Training Programs, Guest Lectures and Technical Talks to provide a platform for the budding engineers to interact with professionals from various industries. The department club “Pravega” (meaning acceleration) encourages students to participate in both college and intercollege competitions to design and flying of gliders, RC Planes, water rockets and aircraft models.
Job opportunities has increased exponentially during the last year in Aeronautical engineering field through Government sectors ( DRDO,IAF,IN,IA,OFB,Indian Airlines),PSUs (HAL,ADA,NAL) , multinational private companies like British Aerospace (BAE),Bell Helicopter, Boeing,Dassault Aviation,Sukhoi Aviation in addition to 50 plus small scale companies due to huge expansion of aviation sector. Join this branch for an exciting career.
Developing the department as a center of excellence to evolve Aeronautical Engineers with knowledge, skill and character for all relevant occupations.
To build a talent pool of Aeronautical Engineers with innovative problem solving capabilities.
Orientation of the students to state-of-the-art technologies and research for aerospace product development activities.
To groom Aeronautical Engineers to be responsible citizens with sensitivity to ethical, societal and environmental issues.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE
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.
