The Department of Aeronautical Engineering is the youngest and most dynamic department at NMIT (Nitte Meenakshi Institue of Technology). The department was started in the academic year 2011-12 with the approval of AICTE. It has grown into a reputed department offering a 4-Year Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program in Aeronautical Engineering. The goal of the department is to mould students into top class aeronautical engineers suitable for employment on a global scale.
Students are encouraged to take up internship and project work at reputed organizations such as the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), and Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
The faculty of the department comprises of highly qualified and experienced professors who were formerly working with reputed organizations such as NAL and the IAF (Indian Air Force). The faculty also comprises of young, motivated and dynamic Assistant Professors, four of whom are pursuing their Ph.D. Faculty members mentor students to help them to grow into outstanding Aeronautical Engineers.
Aeronautical Engineering is a challenging field of engineering with a wide scope for growth. This field includes the study of new technology in the fields of aviation, space exploration and defense systems. Aeronautical engineering trains students in designing, construction, development, testing, operation and maintenance of both commercial & military aircraft and space-crafts. Aeronautical Engineering Courses impart multi-faceted training to students in areas such as manufacturing and aeronautics.
