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.

Eligibility Criteria

For UG: Class XII pass-out from a recognised school.

For PG: B.Tech degree in the given areas: Aerospace, Aeronautical, Mechanical, Automobile, Chemical, Naval Architecture, Electrical, Electronics, Metallurgy & Material Science, Instrumentation, Mechatronics etc.

Scope of Aeronautical Engineering

  • There is a lot of scope in government organisations including defence.
  • Aeronautical engineers can have earned well in private MNCs
  • There are opportunities to work with NASA after completing higher studies in this stream.

Hi there,

Aeronautical engineering is a branch of engineering which basically deals with the aerodynamics principals. And it's trajectory in space.

If you are to be a pilot Or space scientists then this branch would be a stepping stone in your ambition.apart from this there are also lots of application of aeronautical engineering.

I hope this help


Where can i get aeronautical coaching during 11&12 in banglore

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 7th Apr, 2020

If you want to pursue aeronautical engineering after 12th, you do not need separate coaching for that. Simply take coaching (if you are interested) for JEE mains/advance.You will get admission in colleges offering Aeronautical engineering course through JEE mains and other engineering examinations.

I hope this helps.

is it any way to go for aeronautical engineering from mit Chennai after bsc .

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 7th Apr, 2020

The eligibility for admission in B.E in Aeronautical engineering atis Madras Institute of Technology is that a candidates should have passed 10+2 or its equivalent examination wih Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.Admission is based on TNEA counseling where your 12th marks in taken into consideration and there is cut throat competition for that.You will not get admission so you should better go for M.Sc through IIT JAM examination,that's a good option in my opinion.

I hope this helps.

Hey there

Yes you can take PCMB in your 10+2 or pre-university  and then after pre university you can go for engineering courses like  engineering in aeronautics etc

Actually for the engineering courses and their entrance examination , the requirement is that you should have studied physics and maths along with other chemistry or biology etc.

For example to be eligible for JEE mains, criteria is that you should have passed your class 12th board examination with

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject),

Thus,  you will be eligible for aeronautical engineering after your pre- university with pcmb.
