If you are one who is looking for a career in space explorations done by many space research organisation around the world, then a career in aerospace engineering will get you there. Aerospace engineering is one of the latest addition in the engineering domain which deals with the study of research, construction and maintenance of aircraft, spacecraft missiles and weapon systems.

Aerospace Engineering

The branch aerospace engineering is further divided into two, which are aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Aerospace engineering covers properties of aerodynamic characteristics of an aircraft and hence it is the most demanding and yet challenging branch of engineering.

How to join

Students who want to join and study aerospace engineering are required to attend the entrance examination after completing the qualifying examination (10+2). Appearing and securing a fair rank in the Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE-Main) will get you a seat in Aerospace engineering in a reputed college in India. You can also appear for Joint Entrance Examination Advanced to get into any IITs in India. Apart from this, top engineering universities and colleges in India conduct individual entrance examination to admit students to available seats based on merit.

Aerospace engineering colleges

Apart from securing a good rank in the entrance examination, aerospace engineering students should have good command over Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Some of the best aerospace engineering colleges in India are IITs, BIT Mersa, SRM IST, IIEST, MIT Chennai, BMS College of Engineering etc.

On choosing an institution to study aerospace engineering, one must look up to the infrastructure and other facilities available there to bring out the best in oneself. The candidates should have a clear criteria in selecting a college for aerospace, aeronautical and aviation engineering. It is clear that not everyone can get into the IITs in India. One must be aware that there are many other reputed engineering universities and colleges in India which offers good quality education. The most important things a candidate should look into on selecting an institution is its accreditation and exceptional job placement rates along with its reputation for engineering excellence among other institutions. On looking up to the faculty, choose a college or institution having a faculty who are active in research and engineering. And it is good to consider the possibilities and chances of engineering fellowship or internships specifically for aerospace engineering students from the organisations which are active in space research studies.

Future

Securing a degree in aerospace engineering from a reputed institution will get you into a profession involved in research and construction of aircraft or spacecraft. In today’s technologically advanced world where nations are actively participating in space studies and research requires a fair number of aerospace engineers each year. Aerospace engineers are a vital part of major space technology advancements happening worldwide. The demand for these people who can develop and improve the technology with various organisations is on the rise.

If you are sure you can help the country and the world in building new space technologies or a defence system for a safer world, you are one of the elite categories. Join today!
