Aeronautical Engineering

The department was started in the year 1997 as a specialized department and grew in stature to be a pioneer in this part of the country. The department boasts a number of credits. Its UG program is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The Post Graduate program, called ‘Master of Engineering in Aeronautical Engineering’ was added in the year 2003. The Doctoral (Ph.D.) Program has commenced from April 2008 in collaboration with the Anna University. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the premier company in India, specializing in the manufacture of civilian and combat aircraft, has considered the department competent to train their management trainees and had been sending trainees continuously for over four years. So far, 460 trainees were trained by the department. The department is presently conducting a short term program, namely, ‘Master Diploma in Aircraft Design’ (6 months – 320 hours of training) with a student strength of 62. The department has been securing gold medals in UG programs for the past nine years. Majority of our students are placed at ISRO, DRDO, NAL, HAL, ADA, IAF and Other private industries like Quest Global, Satyam Mahindra, and InfoTech etc.
