Department of Aeronautical Engineering was started in the academic year 2006-07. This is an undergraduate course of 4-year. It is ranked No 1 by Anna University & the AICTE among Chenn
ai’s engineering colleges in an evaluation done in 2009. Industrial placements ensure that students get hands-on experience in an actual workplace. The B.E., Aeronautical Engineering Programme envisaged will have its accent on the Research and Development aspects of Aerospace activities in our country and abroad. Equal stress is laid on aircraft structures, aerodynamics and aircraft propulsion. Students are taught the importance of airplane design and projects are related to maintenance of these machines. Field visits are organized by the college in aeronautical and space establishments. Training is given in special areas such as CFD a3. CESSNA AIRCRAFT_copynd FEM. An aero modeling club has been formed to create awareness about the practical aspects of design and flying. Based on the student’s academic performance, airplane flight laboratory training in gliders and powered aircraft is made available in the pre-final year.

PG Program-Master of Aeronautical Engineering was added in 2012 with an intake of 18 per year.

Five batches of Aeronautical Engineers had graduated from this department.

 

The department has produced University Rank holders since its inception

  • A CESSNA 150 Two seater Metal airplane in the airframe laboratory.
  • An open circuit subsonic wind tunnel of 0.6m x 0.6m (2ft x 2ft) test section with a speed of 200 kmph in the aerodynamics laboratory.
  • Accessories like manometers, wind tunnel balances and models.
  • A water flow channel and Hele-Shaw apparatus for flow visualization studies.
  • A subsonic Ramjet engine, Free and Wall Jet Equipments in the propulsion laboratory.
  • A miniature supersonic wind tunnel in the high- speed aerodynamics laboratory.
  • Beam testing, column testing set up and Photo elastic test equipment in the structures laboratory.
  • Axial flow and centrifugal flow jet engines and piston engines.
  • A large number of books on different aspects of Aerospace Engineering in the library.

 

In India aeronautical engineers are mostly employed by

  • ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization)
  • Civil Aviation Department,
  • National Aeronautical Laboratory,
  • Defense Research and Development Laboratories (DRDO) and
  • Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
