Aeronautical Engineering (Accredited by NBA )

Introduction

Aeronautical Engineering is one of the fascinating areas in Engineering across the globe. The Aerospace & Defense technology enhances the nation’s technology target and achieves global recognition. The department of Aeronautical Engineering was established in 2011, affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University. The department has grown rapidly ever since its establishment. The goal of the department is to mentor the students into top-class aeronautical engineers, suitable for employment in the National and International scenarios and almost catering successful engineers into various aerospace organizations continuously.
In 2019 the Aeronautical department received NBA accreditation based on its outstanding academic achievement and quality of course delivery.

The Department offers a vibrant academic atmosphere that enables independent research and the free exchange of ideas among students and faculties. The department has continuous interaction with Aerospace and Defense organizations of international reputation like Dassault Systems, SIEMENS, Bosch Rexroth, and National Aerospace Laboratories, to help students build the required skill set. In 2020, the Aeronautical Dept. received a grants of Rs.15 Lakh from AICTE under Modernization and Removal of Obsolescence (MODROBS) for setting up of advanced Vibration analyzer setup at Aircraft Structures Lab to enhance research interest among UG & PG students and research scholars. In recognition of the work at “AIREINO”, a student club of Aeronautical department, AICTE has released a grant of Rs.1 Lakh under Scheme for Promoting Interests, Creativity, and Ethics among Students (SPICES) in 2020.
