Aeronautical Engineering

About The Department

Aeronautical Engineering is taken as one of the most fascinating subjects in applied science and engineering around the Globe. On the other hand, the improvement of our nation can happen if we develop aerospace technology, which will facilitate for other technologies update proportionally. Aerospace engineers incubate new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and Aerospace exploration, often specializing in areas such as aerodynamics, aerospace propulsion, aerospace structures, guidance, navigation and control, instrumentation and communication, or production methods.

The Department offers a vibrant academic atmosphere which enables independent research and free exchange of ideas. The department has continuous interaction with R & D organizations of international reputation in the field of aerospace engineering that lead to mutually beneficial research activities.


To mould the aeronautical students to achieve the excellence in the field of technical education, research, innovation, entrepreneurship and industry related development to meet the challenges in society.


MD1:  To impart high quality technical education and unique interdisciplinary experiences.

MD2: To promote research, innovation and entrepreneurship culture among students for the benefits of society.

MD3: To collaborate with industry and institute for technology up-gradation.



With Extreme gladness, I welcome you all to the Department of Aeronautical Engineering established in the year of 2008 with a vision to produce technically competent engineers for serving the nation. The Department is Longstanding in the institute by crossing a decade and becomes a primary identity of the institution through the laurels it has attained so far.

The Department has produced many university rank holders in end semester examinations through knowledge dissemination in a well structured academic module in par with universal standards. The Department caters the technical demand of every student during course duration through detailed lecture and practical sessions, thought provoking technical workshops, seminars, conferences and activity based competitions.

The Department has a very strong industry tie up with many leading industries and startups to have an enriched knowledge about the discipline for preparing the student community to meet the swifty changes in the industry under all aspects. The student community actively participates in sessions about the latest developments of the discipline to understand the changes through expert talks from premier institutions such as IIT, NIT and top notch industries. The rigorous and vibrant faculty team represents the department by contributing high value research articles to journals, book chapters and conference proceedings. The faculty team deliberately involves them in molding the student for transition to be a notable entrepreneur or an outstanding skilled professional. UG degree in Aeronautical Engineering opens up favorable opportunities for high studies and careers with leading government organizations such as ISRO, NASA, DRDO, HAL, NAL and MRO with a bright future.

I assure the success of every student joining B.E., Aeronautical Engineering at NIT to foresee a career with abundant academic prospects and professional values.
