Aeronautical Engineering is a fascinating and high-technology discipline more than 110 years old, requiring much more contribution from engineers and scientists to broaden its scope and application to develop next generation Hypersonic Aircrafts, fast whisper- quite Helicopters, reusable space crafts, Launch vehicles etc.  My best wishes and greetings to all the students who are aspiring to become Aeronautical Engineers and take India to the forefront of developed nations.

Vision & Mission

Our Vision

To empower the students with subject knowledge of Aeronautical Engineering for serving the society in a challenging global environment.

Our Mission

• To provide quality technical education in tune with the challenges.
• To offer latest technological developments in the fields of Aeronautical Engineering.
• To integrate the intellectual, spiritual, ethical and social development of the students for becoming dynamic Aeronautical Engineers.
• To initiate desires for undertaking entrepreneurship and lifelong learning.

Programs Outcomes & Objective

Program Outcome describe the knowledge, skills and attitudes the students should have at the end of a four year engineering program.

Engineering Graduates will be able to:

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Program Specific Outcomes are statements that describe what the graduates of a specific engineering program should be able to do.

  1. Core skills:Identify, Formulate and Analyze Complex Engineering problems in aerodynamics, Propulsion, Aircraft Structures, aircraft Manufacturing and Maintenance domains.
  2. Interdisciplinary skills: Able to design and develop interdisciplinary and innovative systems.
  3. Personality Development:Able to inculcate effective communication skills, team work, ethics, leadership in preparation for a successful career in industry and R&D organizations.
