Overview : Aeronautical Engineering\Aviation Engineering is one of the most popular courses in engineering. Aeronautical Engineering is one of the most challenging fields of engineering with a wide scope for growth. This deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space exploration and defence systems. It specializes in the designing, construction, development, testing, operation and maintenance of both commercial and military aircraft, spacecrafts and their components as well as satellites and missiles.
As Aeronautical engineering involves design and manufacture of very high technology systems, the job requires manual, technical as well as mechanical aptitude. An aeronautical engineer needs to be physically fit and fully dedicated to his/her work. One needs to be alert, have an eye for detail and should have a high level of mathematical precision to be successful.
The specializations includes in areas like Structural Design, Navigational Guidance and Control Systems, Instrumentation and Communication or Production Methods or it can be in a particular product such as Military Aircrafts, Passenger Planes, Helicopters, Satellites, Rockets etc. Aeronautical Engineers may work in areas like design, development, and maintenance as well as in the managerial posts.Career training in aeronautical engineering can get you your dream job in a prestigious organization. In India aeronautical engineers are mostly employed by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) and the Defense Ministry. One can also look for jobs available with the Civil Aviation Department, National Aeronautical Laboratory, Defense Research and Development Laboratories (DRDO) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
