Aeronautical engineering deals with the study of flying of objects in the Earth's atmosphere Aeronautical. Engineering is used in designing and building of aircraft and missiles. This branch is derived from the aerospace engineering. Astronautical Engineering is another field related to the Aerospace Engineering, which deals with is the study of astronomical flights. Aeronautical engineering uses the concepts of mathematics, electronics, and physics in the research, development and maintenance of aircrafts. Main focus areas of Aeronautical Engineering are:
To pursue an undergraduate course in aeronautical engineering, the candidate must pass 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics from a recognized Board.
To pursue a postgraduate course in automobile engineering, the candidate must have Bachelor’s (B.E. or B.Tech.) degree in automobile engineering from recognized University.
Aeronautical engineers have the opportunity to work with the companies like Airbus, Boeing and NASA. In India aeronautical engineers are hired by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), Air India, Pawan Hans, Helicopter Corporation of India, Civil Aviation Department, National Aeronautical Laboratory, Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). The initial income of Aeronautical Engineers is between INR 20, 000 to Rs. 40,000 per month.
