The Department of Aeronautical Engineering was started in the year 2008. The department offers 4-year undergraduate programme, B.E. in Aeronautical Engineering. The department has a team of highly qualified, dedicated and motivated faculty and well-equipped laboratories. An independent Aeronautical Engineering block called Centre for Aero science with a built-up area of 72000 sq ft was inaugurated by former President of India, Bharat Ratna, Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on July 16th, 2010. Aero Science Centre houses laboratories, classrooms, faculty rooms, sophisticated Modeling and Simulation lab, Aero science Museum, Seminar hall, conference hall and Department library. The department has a wide range of teaching activities, grouped under broad areas, namely 1. Aerodynamics and CFD 2. Aircraft Structures 3. Aircraft and Rocket Propulsion 4. Avionics 5. High Temperatures materials and composites 6. Aircraft systems and Instrumentation 7. Airframe and Engine maintenance. The department prepares the graduates to undertake design, research and maintenance activities as their careers in aeronautical and aerospace engineering.
The Department of Aeronautical Engineering aims to be the leader in aeronautical and space engineering through quality education and research in emerging areas with a high degree of interpersonal skills and ethical responsibilities.
BIT Aero encourages the students to enable themselves with fundamental and advanced knowledge in aeronautical engineering and interdisciplinary subjects by strategically aligning teaching, research, and service missions to prepare for their successful professional careers through
i. An appropriate balance of classroom, design, laboratory, and research experience.
ii. Collaboration with the aerospace industry through directed research, internships, and professional mentoring for recognition and recruitment.
iii. The habits of life long learning instilled by aeronautical knowledge base as well as strong written and oral communication with a sense of the importance of professional and ethical responsibilities.
