B. Tech. Aerospace Engineering with minor Engineering

Keeping in view the interests of the student, we at GNA University, offer the student to choose multiple domains in engineering. Students may opt for a secondary field of engineering as Minor Engineering from 3rd semester, along with their primary chosen field. In order to have an additional Minor Engineering, a student must earn additional minimum 20 credits in the chosen field of minor engineering.

B. Tech. Honors

A student will be eligible to get Engineering degree with Honours, if he/she completes an additional 20 credits. These could be acquired through MOOCs/NPTEL courses subject to approval by the Dean/Head of the Faculty of Engineering Design and Automation.

Career Opportunities

Aerospace engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the design, development, testing, and production of aircraft, spacecraft, and related systems and equipment. The foundation level courses are Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Materials Science.
