Aeronautical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at Jawaharlal College of Engineering & Technology.


Aeronautical Engineers design, construct and test aircrafts, missiles, satellites, rockets, spacecrafts and anything that flies. Besides this, they are also involved in researching new materials, engines, body shapes and structures. An Aeronautical engineer applies scientific and technological principles to research, design, develop, maintain and test the performance of civil and military aircrafts, missiles, weapons systems, satellites and space vehicles. They also work on the different components that make up the aircraft and associated systems. The role is focused on enhancing high-quality flight safety and standards as well as reducing overall design, operation and maintenance costs. Increasingly, the role addresses the environmental impact of air travel.
Higher order specialization in the Aeronautical Engineering involves core subjects such as propulsion, computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, avionics, rockets & missiles, material science and aircraft structures.
