MVJ College of Engineering Streaming into Aerospace Engineering
by Shrutee K/DNS
Bangalore: MVJ College of Engineering best known for its quality education, creating environment for progressive learning and development is initiating a new B.E. program in ‘Aerospace Engineering’ from this academic year 2018-19.
The program will be alongside the existing Aeronautical Engineering curriculum. The first year of the program is common with Mechanical Engineering, and it is from the second year onwards that varied curriculum will be initiated from Aeronautical program, while the third and final year are exclusive to space related subjects.
In this branch of engineering, a student goes through hypersonic aerodynamics, space structures, space propulsion, spacecraft systems, launch vehicles, orbital mechanics, satellite designs, satellite communications, and space robotics. There are many more subjects e.g., space flight mechanics, space related avionics, satellite navigation and control, aero acoustics that a student learns apart from familiarization with aeronautical subjects in the second year. Aeronautical and Aerospace related labs are part of the curriculum. In the Aerospace Industry a huge scope and need would arise because of emerging newer concepts in this dimension. The new program in Aerospace is envisaged to meet the demanding and challenging role in this domain. There are vast job opportunities for an Aerospace Engineer in Aerospace Companies, Aerospace Laboratories, Defense sector and many more.
Prof. S.C Gupta, HOD –Aerospace Engineering Department, MVJCE shared his thoughts that the Aerospace Engineering is one of the most challenging areas which majorly deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space and defense systems. It is a very interesting subject for the students to learn as it focuses on design, development, testing and production of Aerospace Vehicles and launch Platforms. We at MVJ College of Engineering are very glad to start this new program and wish to produce the best of Aerospace Engineers in the country.
