B.Tech - Aerospace Engineering
The ability to fly off the ground is one of the highest achievements of Mankind. Be it in the sky or in outer space, the Aerospace Engineer is the one who makes it all possible.
Aerospace Engineering is the most demanding and interesting career option. Students interested in learning about missiles, satellites and aircrafts, generally opt for Aerospace Engineering.
An Aerospace Engineer designs, tests, constructs and maintains aircrafts and spacecrafts. Aerospace Engineering is divided into two branches - Aeronautical Engineering specializes in aircrafts, missiles, helicopters; basically everything that flies within the limits of Earth's atmosphere while Astronautical Engineering includes satellites, rockets, space stations, space shuttles and spacecrafts that fly beyond Earth's atmosphere.

One of the most challenging areas of engineering, Aerospace Engineering deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space and defense systems. Aerospace Engineering involves design and manufacturing of hi-tech systems.
This discipline specializes in designing, construction, development, testing and maintenance of commercial and military aircrafts and spacecrafts. Aerospace Engineering is categorized into two branches – Aeronautical Engineering and Astronautical Engineering.
The work profile or duties of an Aerospace Engineer typically involves research, design, construction and maintenance of aircrafts and spacecrafts. An Aerospace Engineer is expected to undertake following duties:
- Researching ways to make fuel-efficient parts and engines
- Carrying out ground-level flight testing
- Collecting and analyzing test data
- Estimating project costs and timescales.
