Introduction to Aerospace Engineering
Commit to the understanding of the field of Aeronautical Engineering with Introduction to Aerospace Engineering programme.
Medium of instructions English
Mode of learning Self study
Mode of Delivery Video and Text Based
The Introduction to Aerospace Engineering programme contains four methods which are included in its teaching-learning Dynamic, to strengthen the understanding of the candidate and to ensure a complete understanding. The four methods are- Provision for PowerPoint Presentations and Video Lectures, Online Discussion Forum for doubt solving, Online Reading Material for reference, Tests and Quizzes for practice.
The programmes under Swayam are reviewed and implemented by Nine National Coordinators like UGC, NCERT, IGNOU, IIMB, NIOS, CEC, NITTTR, AICTE and NPTEL. The intention behind the campaign is to provide Higher Education its due importance. Keeping in mind the unavailability of Physical Resources, economical shortcomings and lack of an adequate platform, the Government has employed more than thousands of learned faculties, specially appointed for the job and is constantly making efforts to make the candidates digitally educated.
There are three main pillars of the Indian Education Policy; Access, Quality, and Equity, and Swayam has the objective of achieving it all through its Online Platform to provide free learning of the entire curriculum from Class 9 level up to Post-Graduation. The programme is named ‘Swayam’ to hint at the self-efficient and self-learning nature of the initiative. It promises to bridge the digital gap among the digitally unhinged masses of students, even those who’re underprivileged and deprived of digital exposure and knowledge.

Who it is for
This programme is recommended for Engineers of any discipline who are interested in the subject.
Certification Qualifying Details
The candidate will be eligible for certification only if:
- Average Assignment Score >= 10/25
- Exam Score >= 30/75
If any one of the two criteria is not met, a certificate will not be allotted even if the Final Score is >=40/100.
Only an E-certificate will be issued by NPTEL and IIT Bombay, having the Candidate’s Name, Photograph, and the Score in the Final Exam including the breakup.

How it helps
The Introduction to Aerospace Engineering programme provides a general overview of the field of Aeronautical Engineering. It consists of two lectures in each of its ten capsules of curriculum and each lecture has some specific concept covered in relevance to the subject. The instructors have planned to make the course interesting by using PowerPoint presentations, In-Class Interactions, quizzes, Innovative Hands on Assignments which will satiate their curiosity. The course will accentuate the desire to know more and also increase the student’s awareness.
A special focus is paid on Fluid Mechanics, Aerodynamics and Principles of Aircraft Performance and Propulsion and within 12 weeks of learning, an Engineer from any discipline will be able to have an overall hinge for Aeronautics. Another benefit of pursuing this course is the presence of an esteemed and renowned Faculty from IIT Bombay with vast knowledge and a lot of experience.
It must be noted that the certificate of this course holds special value as it will be issued not just by Swayam, but also by the logo of NPTEL and IIT Bombay. These reputable institutions also provide Industry Support along with this course from National Organisation like DRDO, NAL, IAF and HAL, which will be of great importance and will help increase the employability of the candidate.
