Aeronautical engineering is one of the most challenging fields of engineering with a wide scope of growth. This discipline specializes in research, design development performance testing, maintenance of commercial and military airplanes, weapon systems. Aeronautical engineers improve flight safety & fuel efficiency, develop control systems, analyse new materials and use advanced technologies to meet customer needs and reduce the environmental impact of air commute.
Prospects after Aeronautical Engineering
- Maintenance of Aircraft – Aerospace Engineers test new aerodynamic and aviation systems, and maintain them.
- Aircraft Designer – Aerospace Engineers specializing in this field deal with designing, analysis, constructing, and testing aircraft.
After completing a degree in Aeronautical engineering, you can work in government sectors — with ISRO, HAL, DRDO labs like GTRE, ADA, DRDL and NAL, etc. or in private sectors such as L & T, Godrej Aerospace, Boeing, Airbus, Mahindra, etc. You can also go for Indian Air force and Indian Navy.
