  • 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics

To be eligible for admission to an aeronautical engineering bachelor's degree programme in India, potential candidates must have finished their 10+2 schooling, or its equivalent, with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as their main courses.

Course Overview

A specific area of engineering focused on the design, development, and manufacturing of aircraft and spacecraft is known as aeronautical engineering. It is a dynamic and challenging discipline that requires a deep understanding of basic concepts in mathematics, physics, and materials science. Aeronautical engineering is a field that attracts a lot of attention from prospective engineers in India, where there are several educational institutes offering undergraduate and graduate programmes in this field.

The four-year undergraduate aeronautical engineering programme aims to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills for the design and manufacture of aircraft and spacecraft. Aerodynamics, propulsion systems, structural design, materials science, and control mechanisms are only a few of the topics covered in the programme.

This extensive curriculum has been carefully designed to provide students with a strong foundation in fundamental engineering concepts as well as real-world experience building, testing, and assessing aircraft and spacecraft. It consists of many lab and hands-on activities where students work on projects such as building wind tunnels, designing airfoil patterns, and analysing propulsion systems.

Career Scope

Aeronautical engineering bachelor's degree holders have a wide range of employment opportunities in the aerospace industry. The fascinating and difficult field of aeronautical engineering necessitates a deep understanding of basic physics, mathematics, and materials science concepts. Many universities in India provide undergraduate and graduate programmes in this area, enabling students to develop advanced skills and knowledge in aeronautical engineering. This programme is highly sought after by aspiring engineers since graduates have access to a wide range of job choices in both the public and commercial sectors.

After completing an aeronautical engineering bachelor's degree programme, graduates can look for jobs in the public and commercial sectors. Leading employers in this field include the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

Some of the career pathways available comprise:
