B.Tech Admission Advises

Aeronautical Engineering Course or Aerospace Engineering Course: Prospects, Future and Institutes in India

This is a specialized and improved branch of mechanical engineering that involve learning about design and construction of airplanes, aircraft and spacecrafts. This course needs a good understanding of basic mathematics and physics because lot of fundamental principles from physics and mathematics are extensively applied in flight technology. Speaking more practically, don’t have an expectation that you will visit all top Aerospace lab in the world and exposed to all space settles in B.Tech (bachelor degree in engineering) or M.Tech (master degree in engineering) course. This course will teach your basic principles of flight engineering with few individual experiments. For example, you may have a lab to experiment vibration, propulsion and thermodynamics. You will test all of them individually not in aircraft.

Frankly speaking big job opportunities are rare in the field of engineering. Usually students either move to software companies to got master of engineering in Aerospace Engineering. If you are aim is to work for NASA and you are from and in India then you need to be exceptionally talented, lucky, patient and persistent

Core companies: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, there are few private companies like Boeing, GE who offer job for aerospace engineering. Finding a job is core aerospace engineering is not easy.

Average salary
: 2 to 3 lakh Rupees

Institutes offering Aerospace Engineering Degrees:
Indian Institute of Science (IISc)
Almost all IITs (Indian Institute of Technology)
Hindustan Inst of Engineering Technology, Chennai
Indian Institute of Aeronautical Engineering, Dehradun
Academy of Aerospace and Aviation, Indore

    I had completed my diploma in electronic and communication engineering and i selected to write ecet and eamcet both are equal but
    . when i go to write ecet then i still continue with my ece branch & starting at 2nd year
    . When i go to write eamcet i choose the aerospace engineering because of my aim is isro scientist but my family is so poor now and whenever i will get a job my family is happy on today i.e, my problem is what to do i am? Go to ece branch with ecet or go to aerospace engineering with eamcet? Pleass sir/madam i kindly request you reply this message with my email id: rajutinku20@gmail.com it’s my carrier
    thank you for giving this chance for me

  9. saroj sah

    If I”ll complete btech from india and complete mtech from foreign countries such as usa, germany, canada, australia etc in aeronautical/aerospace engineering then there is greater possibility of getting jobs in that field or not in abroad?

  10. saroj sah

    Either in aerospace or aeronautical has easy to get job?

    Sir , right now I am going to finish my schooling and will joining to my UG course in College . Right now I am stuck between automobile and aeronautical engineering . My parent and relatives say go to automobile . I Want to take aeronautical. I dont know what to decide . So please suggest me what to take or give ur own Suggestions .Thank You

  14. RAHUL SANJAY GADE

    Raam sir,
    With due respect,i want to known your qualification and present profile,so that i can understand ,why you are less sure about jobs in aerospace

  15. Raam

    Beautifully said. However, thousands of young students all over India stillblindly take up a course in Aeronautical Engineering, dreaming of working at DRDO or ISRO, only to face disappointment at the state of their careers- even getting into a private company related to aerospace is rare.

    I wish people understood that very clearly before taking up this course.

    1. Gazel

      So, you’re saying it’s safer to do Mechanical Engineering instead? If I do that, how do I get back to the Aerospace field that I’m interested in? Please let me know…

  16. vicky

    i am computer science graduuate i want become flight engineer it is possible or not please suggest me…buy the way how many types of technical jobs in airport related to my course ..

    Sir
    Sorry for using this name i use it everywhere
    this is my virtual name
    My question is I am in CSE branch in GCELT (Hope you heard of it in WB) can i change my branch to Aerospace Engineering in my Masters Degree ??

    1. nishantt

      very sorry !!! you cant…you should have done your ug in mechanical to do p.g in aerospace!!!!!

  57. vishvaja

    sir, i wish to do aerospace engineering bt my relatives told me it doesnt hv scope in india. so m very confuse. should i do it??????????
    which is d best college in maharashatra for it??????

    1. Sooraj

      Sir. I like to do aeronautical engineering. But i ask lot persons. They told me. There is no scope to get the job. And the field is very dull. So i kindly requesting to u help me and tell a good collage in (comba) or in kerala.

    2. Raam

      Trust me, go for a BTech in mechanical. You can think of aerospace if you have any thoughts about maters. Limiting yourself to such a narrow stream right at the beginning of your engineering is a very bad option.

      By the way, I am an aeronautical engineer

  58. Abhishek Sheth

  64. deepti ahuja

    Very informative article. As the progress in aviation industry, aerospace engineers are highly in demand. It’s a high-tech job which demands some unique qualities. If you are not a skilled person there is no chance to get into this industry, thus it becomes mandatory to acquire proper training from an institute which is very important to this industry. UPES dehradun offers B.tech (aerospace engineering).The program has been designed to create industry-ready professionals by training students on a wide variety of technical issues involving Design, Analysis and Manufacturing of Airplanes, Rockets, Missiles, Space launch vehicles, UAVs and more.
    First of its kind in India, UPES dehradun in widely reputed for its unique academic programs, well qualified faculty and good placements.

  85. Ismail

    Sir,

    Thanks for your article on aerospace engineering. The content of the article is very frank and actual. I got call letter for admission from IIT Kharagpur in Aerospace engineering. Actually I am a fresh B.E.civil graduate. As far as my case is concerned, your article is discouraging me in joining Aerospace. Now I will have to rethink in joining in Aerospace engineering.

    Best regards,
    Ismail

    1. Zahid

      Ismail: Sorry for being too frank. I would like to say, though the start is a little risky but you go right way promotions are good. You may will see the higher pay soon. For you if you have alternatives let me know. Otherwise IIT KGP is a cool place to start a new life. You can plan for higher studies and make Boeing or other top companies as your destination.
      It think IITKGP will give you a great platform, and it all depends how big you think after joining there. Most of the student complain and screw too, because of too high expecations.
      Lets discuss if you have other alternatives. Good luck ahead.
