The discipline of Aeronautical Engineering was introduced in SVIT in the year 2003. Aeronautical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering is one of the highly challenging and exciting fields of engineering and technology with a broad range for career opportunities. Aeronautical Engineering has been very important discipline of engineering as it plays a vital role in the field of transportation and defense of the country. Aeronautical Engineering Course imparts knowledge to the students in areas of manufacturing and development of aircrafts, helicopters and missiles. This is the reason why an Aeronautical engineer has wide scope of employment in design, development and testing in the field of defense and space science. This course offers specializations in designing and planning, building, testing and operation of both commercial and military aircraft, ballistic capsules and space vehicles, as well as satellites and missiles. Thrust areas in the field of Aeronautical Engineering are Aerodynamics, Aircraft Design, Aircraft Structures, Aircraft Propulsion, Helicopter Engineering, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Avionics. The main objective of the department is to give students a broad exposure to all areas of Aeronautical Engineering and make them competent Aeronautical Engineers acceptable world over.
The department regularly arranges seminars, workshops, expert lectures to expose the students to new developments in the field of aeronautics. The department also arranges for industry visits and internships in companies like HAL-Bangaluru, Air India and Pratt & Whitney-Hyderabad to make the students have practical experience.
The department works to mould the students to become future engineers and innovators and make substantial contributions in the field of Aeronautical Engineering and be the noble world citizens.
