Careers in Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical Engineering deals with the study of the principles and technology to design, manufacture and maintain highly sophisticated products such as aircraft, missiles and space satellites. Aeronautical Engineering also specializes in the evolution and research of commercial and military aircraft, missiles, spaceships etc.
An aeronautical engineer can specialize in navigational guidance and control systems, structural design, instrumentation and communication or production methods or it can be in a particular product such as passenger planes, military aircraft, helicopters, satellites, rockets etc. An aeronautical engineer may work in areas like design, development, and maintenance as well as in the managerial and teaching posts in institutes. The demand for aeronautical engineers in airlines, aircraft manufacturing units, air turbine production plants is quite high.

The basic eligibility criteria for BE / B.Tech program is 10+2 (with Physics, Chemistry and Maths) or equivalent examination with a fairly high percentage of marks in the aggregate.
For M.Tech program in aeronautical engineering one should have completed degree in (BE/BTech) aeronautical engineering or any other equivalent branches of engineering.

Job Prospects
Good job opportunities are  available with aircraft-manufacturing units. In India, the defence service and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are two major employment providers. Other than these two, Hindustan Aeronautical Ltd, National Aeronautical Lab, Defence Research and Development Laboratories, Aeronautical Development Establishment, Civil Aviation Department provides good employment opportunities.
