About the course:

Aerospace engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the development of aircrafts and spacecrafts.

Many universities offer aerospace engineering at the advanced diploma, bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD levels in either aerospace engineering departments, or in mechanical engineering departments. A few departments offer degrees in space-focused astronautical engineering.

  1. Aerodynamics – This deals with the fundamental property of flight, the science you must know if you want a body to be aerodynamically significant.
  2. Propulsion – This involves the propulsion systems of an array of aircraft and rockets. It deals with chemical science and physical structure of the propulsive components in the plane.
  3. Avionics – This deals with electrical systems and electronic systems on the aircraft. From pilot display to navigation systems, everything comes under this specialisation.
  4. Structures – This deals with the structural perspective of an aircraft body. Weight, strength, density, corrosive resistance, tensile strength – all play a significant role here.
