WHAT IS AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING ?

Aeronautical engineering is a study about the design and systems of an aircraft. It involves practical and theoretical understanding of materials, assembling parts, testing and maintenance of aircrafts. Professional engineers working in this domain have to be licensed aeronautical engineers. The course also enables students to attain knowledge of advanced technology used in aircrafts travelling in outer space. Aeronautical engineering also covers disciplines like aerodynamics, avionics and propulsion among others. Students pursuing aeronautical engineering can explore opportunities in defence organisations, government research centres, aircraft manufacturing organisations and NASA.
