ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Aerospace industry is at the forefront of scientific and technological developments that make it one of the most diverse, technically advanced and exciting industries to work, today.

An Aeronautical degree can be your passport to a successful and rewarding career within the aerospace industry. An Aeronautical Engineering degree involves turning ideas into reality by applying the principles of science and technology to the research, design, manufacture and maintenance of highly sophisticated products such as aircrafts, Missiles and space satellites. As the Aeronautical Industry provides an environment for innovation, excellent career development along with technical and management routes, our programme is constantly updated with modern courseware and highly sophisticated lab facilities.

With the boom in air travel, the demand for highly sophisticated and skilled engineering professional far outstrips the demand. It is envisaged that this will continue far into the new millennium, ensuring that employment prospects remain buoyant.
