Department of Aeronautical Engineering
About Aeronautical Department
Department of Aeronautical Engineering was established in 2008 and has, thereafter, acquired resources consistently in order to build up a good academic environment. The Lab facilities provided to students in this aeronautical engineering college include a subsonic, open circuit wind tunnel along with its measurement accessories, a 3-component Balance, a water-table, a hot-wire anemometry system, a 32-channel electronic pressure scanner, propeller test set up, flame propagation apparatus, experimental set up for measuring shear centre, torsion and bending stresses, and diffused light Polariscope for stress analysis. The department also has aircraft assemblies, components, and aircraft instruments of a frontline fighter aircraft, and models of various aircraft and jet-engine. The computational facility in the department has specialized software like ANSYS and lab courses are also conducted on the use of modeling simulation software’s like, GAMBIT/ FLUENT, MATLAB, CATIA, and CREO.
The co-curricular activities include educational visits to Air Force bases, industry and academic institutions. The department conducts aero-modelling workshops & organizes guest lectures by experts from industry/academic institutions.
Our Aeronautical students have been placed in DRDO labs, like ADE, Bangalore; in organizations like Mechartes and Zeus Numerix which is engaged in application and development of Computational Fluid Dynamics; and in private companies like TCS and companies engaged in design and maintenance.
