The curriculum for a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Aeronautical Engineering typically includes a combination of theoretical and practical coursework. The subjects covered in the program can vary depending on the specific university or institution, but generally include the following topics:
Aerodynamics: Study of the principles of air and gas flow, including subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flow.
Aerospace materials and structures: Study of materials used in the aerospace industry, such as metals, composites, and ceramics, as well as the design and analysis of aerospace structures.
Propulsion: Study of the systems and technologies used to generate thrust in aircraft and spacecraft, including internal combustion engines, turbojets, turbofans, and rocket engines.
Flight mechanics and control: Study of the principles of aircraft and spacecraft stability and control, including flight dynamics, aircraft performance, and navigation.
Aerospace systems: Study of the systems and technologies used in aircraft and spacecraft, including avionics, navigation, and communications systems.
Aerospace manufacturing: Study of the methods and techniques used in the manufacturing of aerospace components and systems, including casting, welding, and machining.
Computational fluid dynamics: Study of the numerical methods used to simulate fluid flow and heat transfer.
Aerospace vehicle design: Study of the design and optimization of aerospace vehicles and systems, including aircraft, helicopters, and spacecraft.
Project work and practical training: Hands-on experience in aerospace design, manufacturing, and testing through laboratory work and projects.
Some universities may also include additional elective courses that allow students to specialize in specific areas of aeronautical engineering, such as aircraft design, propulsion systems, or aerospace materials.
