Aerospace Engineering is a highly specialized technical field that requires overall excellence in mathematical, calculative and observational skills and also exposes students to advanced applications of this field. Aerospace engineering involves aircraft design, spacecraft, satellites, and missiles. In addition, it also involves testing, designing the components and subassemblies for these crafts; including engines, airframes, wings, landing gear, control systems, and instruments.
The foundation level courses are Engineering Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Materials Science. These lead to a set of applied courses in Aerodynamics, Gas Dynamics, Propulsion, Flight Mechanics, Theory of Machines, Aerospace Structures, Manufacturing Processes, Automatic Control etc.
