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
