Career Prospects

An aeronautical, or aerospace, engineer applies scientific and technological principles to research, design, develop, maintain and test the performance of civil and military aircraft, missiles, weapons systems, satellites and space vehicles. They also work on the different components that make up these aircraft and systems.

The role is focused on enhancing high-quality flight safety and standards as well as reducing system costs. Increasingly, the role addresses the environmental impact of air travel. Aeronautical engineering offers a wide range of roles in research, design, development, testing, manufacture and maintenance. Many engineers specialise in a particular area such as propulsion, computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics or materials and structures.

For Aeronautical engineer jobs are available with the national, international, public and private Airline Services, aircraft-manufacturing units, Defense services and research and development organizations. In the Indian context the Defense service particularly the Air Forces and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) happen to be two major employment providers for Aeronautical Engineers. Moreover, the Aeronautical Engineers often get employment in organizations such as Hindustan Aeronautical Ltd (HAL), Defense Research and Development Laboratories (DRDO), National Aeronautical Lab (NAL), Aeronautical Development Establishment.

Apart from these government organizations, a lot of software companies like Mahindra Satyam, L & T Infotech, Ramco System, Infosys and other Aeronautical development organizations also recruit Aero students.

A lot of job opportunities for aeronautical engineers are also available in countries like United States of America, France, UK and Germany.

Laboratories

Aircraft Structures Lab

The aircraft structures lab imparts practical knowledge on the unsymmetrical bending of beams, find the location of shear centre, obtain the stresses in circular discs and beams using photo elastic techniques, calibration of photo – elastic materials and study on vibration of beams. It also provides the students to study experimentally the load deflection characteristics in structural materials under different types of load.

Aero Engine Lab

To introduce the knowledge of the maintenance and repair of both piston and jet aero engines and the procedures followed for overhaul of aero engines. The lab is equipped with the following engines which are used in Aero Engines.

  1. Turbo Prop Engine
  2. Turbo Shaft Engine
  3. Turbo Jet Engine
  4. Piston Engine

Aircraft System Lab

To train the students on hand experience in maintenance of various airframe systems in aircraft and rectification of common snags. Learjet Aeroplane – 24D model with all systems serviceable and in ground running condition is available for this purpose. Also Cessna – 172 L model piston engine aircraft is also available in ground running condition.

Both the aircrafts are used to train the Aero students “ON HAND” experience for ‘Jacking up’ the a/c ‘Leveling’, ‘Rigging checks’ and ‘Symmetry Checks’, filter element checks, pressure test and functional checks of both fuel and hydraulic systems are covered. Brakes testing and rectification of snags in hydraulic & fuel systems are also covered.

Avionics Lab

This laboratory is divided into three parts to train the students to learn about basic digital electronics circuits, programming with microprocessors, design and implementation of data buses in avionics with MIL – Std. 1553B and remote terminal configuration and their importance in different applications in the field of Avionics.

Propulsion Lab

To understand the basic concepts and carryout experiments in Aerospace Propulsion.

Airframe Lab

To give training on riveting, welding, fabric patch repairs, sheet metal bending, pipe flaring and bending, so that Aero students are conversant with different materials and fabricating processes.
