What is Aerospace Engineering?

Aerospace Engineering is the branch of engineering behind the design, construction and science of aircraft and spacecrafts.  Aerospace engineering is largely about artefacts that fly including airplanes, rockets, satellites or helicopters. It is also about fluid flow, control systems and strength of materials and improving strength. It also deals with how to design things so that they can be reliably built and maintained. 

Aerospace engineering deals with design, development and test aircraft, spacecraft or missiles and supervise their manufacturers. Aerospace Engineering deals with the development of new technologies for use in aviation, defence systems and space exploration and sometimes specialise in areas like structures, vehicle movement and control propulsion systems, communications and overall vehicle design.

Few Lines about B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineering

The B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineering is an undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course elaborates about the basic components of an aircraft such as its design and the science behind it. The course deals with the aircraft within the atmosphere of earth and also with those that operate outside the earth’s atmosphere. It is an applied discipline of engineering dealing with making, designing, manufacturing, functioning and maintenance of vehicles as aircraft, spacecraft and missiles.

The course deals with the study and practice of areas of specialisation like aerodynamics, thermodynamics, control systems, propulsion celestial mechanics and electronics.

Eligibility for B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineering

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join B.Tech/BE courses. The students interested in joining B.Tech/BE courses are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2. 

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). 

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes. 

Direct Admission  

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineering course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.

Placement Opportunities

Some of the placement opportunities are:

Aerospace Engineer: As an aerospace engineer, you will have to work with a team, where you will be designing, testing and assembling spacecraft and aircraft. They are required to maintain the aircrafts on a regular basis and look for any problems and ensure that the aircraft is safe for flying.

Flight Technician: The definition of the work done by technicians in the aerospace industry depends on the field chosen by the technician. There are different kinds of technicians in the aerospace industry, namely aircraft mechanics, aeronautical and aerospace technicians and avionics technicians. They are in charge of the maintenance, construction, testing and operation of spacecraft, aircraft and control systems.

Aircraft Designer: The aircraft designers are responsible to design new and efficient aircrafts and spacecrafts. The commercial air travel and the beginnings of private space flights have led to more demand for designers of state-of-the-art machines that will be safer and more efficient with each passing year.

Military Aerospace Engineer: Military aerospace engineers are required to develop military technologies like laser-guided weapons systems and combat droids to aid soldiers. They design and manufacture military grade aircrafts like fighter jets, combat aircrafts, heavy lifting aircrafts, etc.

Aerospace Technician: The Aerospace technicians are hands-on members of an aerospace team that may install, maintain, test and repair equipment that is being used in the field or developed for use. Technicians are needed as part of research teams and by aerospace and aviation manufacturers and airlines.

Final Lines

There is huge scope for skilled B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineers. They are hired in airline industries and airline manufacturers. The skilled B.Tech/BE Aerospace Engineers are paid with handsome salaries and can expect an excellent career growth in the field. The students with a passion towards aircrafts and spacecraft can join this course.
