Karnataka State is the hub of various Aerospace industries. With the intensions to fulfil the increasing demands of skilled manpower in these industries and hence to serve the society, the Department of Aerospace Engineering was established in year 2017 with under Graduate Course in Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering under VTU, Belgaum. The course is approved by AICTE, New Delhi.
Aerospace Engineering curriculum consist of fundamental subjects like aerodynamics, structures and propulsion in lower semesters and in higher semesters specialized topics like Launch Vehicles design and analysis, Missile Design, Spacecraft design and analysis, Space dynamics, Intra planetary travels and Space environment. On successful completion of the course the student may get opportunities to join various Aerospace industries like ISRO, DRDO, GTRE, HAL, NAL, Boeing, Airbus, Honeywell, TCS, Goodrich, Mahindra Aerospace, Accord Systems, Data Patterns, Servo controls, Dassault – Reliance Aerospace, Safran Engineering Services, Aequs etc.
