B. Tech – Aerospace Engineering
The Department of Aerospace Engineering (ASE) commenced in the year of 2015, in order to meet the needs and trends of the current requirements in the Aerospace industries. The Department is committed to establish, maintain and advance a broad understanding of Aerospace Engineering to fulfil academic and professional objectives. Aerospace Engineering is a wide area and we should not think that being an Aerospace Engineer means working in field of aerodynamics or flight dynamics or working in airports. There are lot of vocations like Airport Management, Aircraft Manufacturing and Management, companies dealing with Aircraft Systems, quality management @component manufacture (viz AS 9001), and plethora of government players are ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited), NAL (National Aerospace Laboratories), a few DRDO labs like GTRE, ADA, and DRDL to name a few. A few private sector companies like Tata, Larsen and Tourbo, Mahindra, Taneja Aerospace too have aerospace divisions, which basically cater to the Indian Government companies.
In GNA University and the Aviation Wing, laboratories and workshops are detailed in the curriculum and have been framed to take up the challenges in Industry and focus themselves on research and development. The Aerospace department has created a Club called “Aero modelling” under the aegis of which the students have successfully conducted the events like Quad-copter manufacturing, fabrication of RC Aircrafts, Technical Quizzes to quote a few.The purchase of a MiG-21 Tumansky R-25 Engine from the Indian Air Force is also intended for providing students a greater insight into flight mechanisms. This department has also set up a low speed wind tunnel for aerodynamic studies.
Student’s education is organized in such a way that they will be the pioneers of tomorrow. University adds to the industrial development and economic growth of the country by preparing a cadre of engineers and scientists, who provide both man power and bolster R&D work for ventures.
