M.Tech Aeronautical Engineering (AE)

How do you help decide what is best for your child? We are here to guide you!


The success of a student both academically and also later on in his career depends upon the Institution where he studies and the facilities that are available to him. MVJCE spares no efforts in this regard. We provide our students all the advanced features and facilities that will shape them into ace Aeronautical Engineers.

Some of the Labs in the Aeronautical Engineering department:

Aerospace Propulsion Lab

The Propulsion Laboratory houses experimental facilities for the under graduate and post graduate programs. It also has equipment for research activities. Lab has a R-25 jet engine and a piston engine. Students can study the fuel and lubrication related systems. Thermal related experiments include forced convective heat transfer over a flat plate, determination of heat of combustion of aviation fuel, measurement of burning velocity of a premixed flame and study of the flame lift up and fall back phenomenon for varied Air/Fuel ratio.

Lab is equipped with a Cascade testing tunnel for testing of axial compressor or turbine blade rows, and there is an axial flow fan unit for testing axial compression. The propulsion lab is well equipped with all the facilities suitable for undergraduate studies and research. Students will learn the basic working principles of jet engines, reciprocating engines, flame properties, flame stabilization etc. The impact of different fuel properties like HCV and LCV can be done and it is open to external members. Preparation solid propellant, burning rate of the propellant, specific impulse of a solid motor and hybrid motor using a thrust stand are various experimental facilities related to rocket propulsion available in the lab.

The Structural Engineering Laboratory at MVJ college of engineering serves a wide spectrum of activities covering those related to teaching, research, development, and consultancy. The primary activities include experimental studies on model/prototype of structural elements and assemblies under various static and dynamic loading conditions. In addition to the regular academic and research the structure lab is open to the public for testing of their module, they can have both static and dynamic tests in our laboratory.

The Flight Simulation Laboratory has MATLAB software for stability and control analysis of aircraft, missiles, satellites, and spacecraft. Mathematical modelling and simulation of aircraft and spacecraft can be carried out. Performance work can also be carried out like estimation of runway roll during take-off and landing with modelling of hazardous conditions. In addition to the modelling software, the lab is equipped with flight simulator where students have real time experience of piloting, students can be able to change the environment’s condition and study the conditions of the flight. The simulator will be open to the public for practice, the external member will be allowed with batches having capacity of minimum 10 people.

Specifically designated for project activities, is available for these students, equipped with cutting-edge PC configurations and software such as ANSYS. Students are motivated to extend their working hours beyond regular college time in the lab. Having experienced faculties and researcher in modelling and analysis and it is open for consultancy projects.

The objective of Aerodynamic Laboratory is to make students understand the nature of flow past various models at different attitudes, and thereby providing a source for engineering testing and flow analysis. The nature of pressure distribution over various aerofoil and body shapes is explained. Experiment related to wake and boundary layer survey provide information on the momentum thickness and displacement thickness.

The Aerodynamics Laboratory houses a subsonic wind tunnel that is used to perform curriculum-based experiments and research activities. The wind tunnel test section has cross section of 600x600mm and length of test section is 2000mm. It has several related accessories like wake rake, pressure transducers, boundary layer rake and model support system etc. The lab has advanced equipment for R&D related activity; namely- three-component internal strain gage balance, six components external stain gauge balance, and hot wire constant temperature anemometer (HWCTA). Several advanced experiments related to estimation of stability derivatives of various configurations can be done using external strain gauge balance. Through HWCTA, the turbulence related experiments can be performed.

Aerodynamics is the subject which deals with objects move through air. Objects that moves through air is affected by aerodynamic forces. To make students aware of the concepts of lift and drag, this laboratory is equipped subsonic wind tunnel facilities with smoke flow testing. Students can do the experiments as wells the projects. In addition to the academic, consultancy work also will be carried out for external members with nominal cost.
