Overview

How does a bird fly, so effortlessly? How do those monster machines at airports take off from the ground and disappear into the sky, before you can blink? How can something that could be heavier than a huge ship, traveling faster than sound, lift off and soar across the sky, carrying the weight of so many human beings? If you have ever asked such questions and fantasized about such matters, then Aeronautical Engineering is the course for you!

Since the time human beings inhabited this earth, the desire for flying like a bird has been a very intense one. A flying bird has always intrigued man. So, the development of flying machines indeed marked a pathbreaking epoch in human life. And in modern times, the Aviation industry has taken a giant leap. Hence, whilea studenthas several options for his Engineering course – Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Computer science and so on - the niche area of Engineering would certainly be Aeronautical Engineering, hands down! It’s not very ‘mainstream’ – it’s a specialized field and looked upon as the very symbol of emerging technology.

Aeronautical Engineering is the branch of study that deals with the design, testing, manufacture, maintenance and research of air-borne vehicles like airplanes, jet planes, helicopters, drones etc. An Aeronautical Engineer plays a big role in improving flight safety, fuel efficiency and he has a social responsibility too, as he is also concerned with the impact of air travel on the environment.

A Sneak Peek into your Future

There is an exponential increase in the job opportunities, both in government and private sectors, for Aeronautical Engineers. Airlines are constantly increasing their fleet size, as air travel becomes more and more affordable to more people. Government, defence services, space agencies and private companies are constantly on the lookout for skilled Aeronautical Engineers to develop systems and flying machines.

An Aeronautical Engineer can get jobs relating to design, manufacture, maintenance, overhauling and repair of aircrafts and aircraft parts. Public sector organizations like HAL, DRDO, ISRO, NAL, Helicopter Corporation of India, ADA etc. and private companies like Capgemini, Airbus, GE, Honeywell, Rolls Royce, Tata Motors, and flight clubsand commercial airlines offer lucrative jobs. An Aeronautical Engineer can find positions in space missions, or with the Airports Authority of India, or in the Indian Air Force.

The work areas of an Aeronautical Engineer are becoming broader, with growing technology. After completing Aeronautical Engineering, you will be eligible in the design and manufacture of not only aircrafts and space crafts, but also turbines, bullet trains etc. An Aeronautical Engineer can design products in areas such as car racing, he can carry his skills into the defence sector to design missiles, fighter planes rockets or satellites. There is a lot of scope for research too, in this field – there is a constant endeavor to improve the existing fleet, produce aircrafts which are less noisy and more fuel-efficient. Aeronautical engineers can also apply for roles that require Mechanical Engineers.

If you are the kind who is innovative, brimming with a passion to create something new, you can even set up your own start-up to cater to areas such as aeromodelling, drones, UAVs etc. And on a lighter note, as an Aeronautical Engineer, you can travel a lot and see the world! With the growth in air travel and the demand for high-speed and safe travel on the rise, the opportunity to revolutionize the next generation of aircrafts is all yours.
