The curriculum for a B.Tech in Aeronautical Engineering typically includes the following subjects:
Aerodynamics: This subject deals with the behavior of air and other gases in motion, and how this affects the performance of aircraft and other aerospace vehicles.
Propulsion Systems: This subject covers the different types of propulsion systems used in aircraft and spacecraft, including jet engines, rocket engines, and turbine engines.
Aircraft Design: This subject covers the design and development of aircraft and other aerospace vehicles, including the use of computer-aided design (CAD) and simulation tools.
Aerospace Materials: This subject covers the types of materials used in the construction of aircraft and spacecraft, including metals, composites, and ceramics, and how to select the appropriate materials for different applications.
Flight Mechanics: The subject is about how the aircraft behaves in flight, how to design it for stability and control and how to calculate the aircraft performance and how to design the control systems that help the aircraft maintain its intended flight path.
Avionics: This subject deals with the electronic systems used in aircraft and spacecraft, including navigation, communication, and flight control systems.
Aerospace Structures: This subject covers the design and analysis of the structural components of aircraft and spacecraft, including the use of finite element analysis (FEA) and other computational tools.
Aerospace Manufacturing: This subject covers the processes and techniques used to manufacture aerospace components and systems, including casting, forging, machining, and welding.
Aeronautical Engineering Lab: This subject covers the laboratory work related to all the above-mentioned subjects.
In addition to these core subjects, students may also take elective courses in areas such as aircraft systems, aircraft maintenance, and aerospace management.
