Aeronautical Engineering

About the Department

The Department of Aeronautical Engineering was established in the year 2005. It offers a UG Course namely B.E. Aeronautical Engineering, which was started in the same year with a sanctioned intake of 60 seats. The department has a wide range of teaching activities with practical exposure grouped under broad areas namely Aerodynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics, Aircraft Structures, Aircraft and Rocket Propulsion, Avionics, High Temperature materials & composites, Aircraft Systems & Instrumentation, a Piper Cherokee Aircraft with instrument bay and Airframe & engine maintenance areas.

The department offers theoretical and practical classes as per Anna University syllabus through excellent and well qualified faculty and staff. The department has well equipped laboratory facilities and equips students to meet the requirements in the field of aeronautics.

Our Aeronautical Engineering Department has produced many Gold Medalists and University Rank holders since its inception.


To promote the Department of Aeronautical Engineering as a Centre of Excellence for Creative Education of highest quality and disseminate ideas and knowledge with moral ethics through self discipline and professionalism to fulfill the social expectations.


  1. Develop high quality, state-of-the-art research facilities appropriate to enabling globally significant basic and applied research.
  2. Perpetual acquisition of knowledge with time consciousness and quick response through better academic practices.
  3. Provide the students with education that combines diligent study and innovation, and achieve it by preserving intrinsic dexterity of the students.
  4. Provide immersive, experiential learning opportunities integrated across the curriculum.
  5. Transform the students as the professional competent engineer to succeed in the field of Aeronautical Engineering.


The performance of any programme is evaluated based on the outcome of the graduates rather than outputs. The programme educational objectives are listed below.

  1. Graduates will have obtained the employment appropriate to the background, interests, education and advancement in the chosen area of specialization.
  2. Graduates can demonstrate the technical competence for planning and execution of designing a product in the industry and participate in the multidisciplinary projects by identifying, formulating, analyzing, and creating engineering support through skills, and tools within global, societal, and environmental contexts.
  3. Graduates will continuously improve the sustained interest to learn and adapt new technology developments to meet the changing industrial scenarios in the Aviation Industry.
  4. Graduates will work successfully in various industrial, research and development (R & D), educational organizations, both in national and international levels, with professional competence and ethical administrative acumen.
  5. Graduates will attain an attitude of independent learning and communication skills as well as ability to critically analyze and carry out innovative and independent research.


The students should be able to acquire the following outcomes by fulfilling the objectives (POs) after successful completion of the courses.

  • To design and develop an aircraft and its component, as per specifications to meet the desired needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, culture, society and environment.
  • To function both individually and on multi-disciplinary teams, to manage projects and accomplish a common goal. Acquire sufficient Knowledge in the field of Management principles, financial management, professional and ethical responsibilities.
  • Able to formulate, analyze, and creatively participate in the solution of multidisciplinary technical problems through the use of modern engineering tools, be they experimental, analytical, or computational.
  • Exhibit the awareness of contemporary issues focusing on the necessity to develop new materials, design and testing methods for the solution of problems related to aircraft industry.
  • Firm scientific, technological and communication base that helps the students to find a placement in the aircraft industry and Research & Development organizations related to Aeronautical Engineering and other professional fields.
  • Possess the skills necessary to fulfill their professional duties and responsibilities in teamwork, collegiality, ethics, technical leadership, business acumen, and lifelong learning. Participate and succeed in competitive examinations.
  • Show an understanding of the impact of engineering solutions on the society and also to be aware of contemporary issues. Demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • About the course

    The Aeronautical Engineering world is changing at high velocity. For an industry once characterized by the phrase ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, the incentive to change was practically non-existent unless forced in some way from dire necessity. This sudden transformation means a huge departure in the way things are getting done. The era where OEMs done (airframe manufacturers) did almost everything themselves, bearing all of the associated costs, is long gone. Now they are moving into a phase where sharing the workload with the suppliers, including associated cost (the Non-Recurring Engineering “NRE costs”) and risks (as well as rewards) is common place. The OEM should act as the aircraft’s ‘Concept-Creator’ and ‘Super-Integrator’ in the future, letting their suppliers do pretty much everything else along the way.
    This Aerospace industry transformation has also lead to the evolution of aerospace supply chain. New players are emerging in the regions (Brazil, China, India and Mexico), while the old players from long established regions (USA, Canada, France, Germany, UK, Spain and Italy) are facing challenges that sometimes threaten their very survival. India is hearing the talk and seeing a lot of action relating to huge potential for aerospace goods and services. Until recently, the Indian aerospace industry was dominated by the Government owned R & D organizations and aircraft development and manufacturing units, which are primarily focused on domestic defense needs. Not a lot of work has been done in India for the aerospace industry outside India, and the private sector has likewise done little for the Indian aerospace. Yet the opportunity for the India is huge-various estimates for aerospace engineering and manufacturing prognosticate figures of between US $ 8 billion to 15 US $ 8 billion over next 10 years. Enormous progress have been made towards indigenous Design, Development and Production of Aircrafts, Missiles and Launch Vehicles at premier Organizations, like Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) along with active participation of Industries and Academic Institutions. Many multinationals are having their base in this country to utilize the expertise available in this specialized field.
    Successful Flights of Aircrafts, like LCA, HANSA and SARAS, Missiles, like PRITHVI, AG-NI, BRAHMOS, SAGARIKA and Launch Vehicles, like PSLV, GSLV and their variants used for launching national and international satellites, Space Recovery Experiments (SRE), Moon Mission, etc. are the testimony of the laudable progress. Further, the design and development of future Advanced Aircrafts, Tactical and Intercepting Missiles, Underwater operation of BRAHMOS, Reusable Aerospace Vehicles, Hypersonic Research Vehicles, Manned Missions, Micro Air vehicles, Air Breathing Engines for rockets and missiles, etc. are planned; and progress is being made to realize in near future.
