Aerospace Engineering department started functioning in the year 2009. During the year, the department of Aerospace Engineering  made steady progress in terms of academic programme. Aerospace Engineering department has been started with the aim of educating and training young aspiring students in the field of Aeronautical sciences and Space technology.

Year of Establishment: Academic year of 2009 - 2010

Courses Offered: B.E. Aerospace Engineering.

The program is designed to prepare students to serve the nation in meeting the challenging requirements envisaged in the broad areas of Design, Analysis and testing related to Aircraft, Launch vehicles, Missiles and Space Missions.

Aerospace engineering is a highly specialized, yet it has various widely diverse fields.  Aerospace engineers are involved in such varied and exciting activities such as enabling hypersonic flight, sending a spacecraft to Mars, designing an artificial heart, and improving tomorrow’s automobiles.All the students of the department became members of the Aero-modelling club started in the University campus and have shown good interest in its activities. A number of students have undergone training on Aero-Engines course as part of summer training programe.

The department has an association of Aerospace Engineering students ASTERA (Aerospace Technical Engineers Regal Association). The chief guest for the inagural function was Sri.Ganesan, LPSC / ISRO, a well known expert in Liquid Propulsion.A number of students from department have won prizes in essay and quiz competitions held in the University. The number of blood donors also has increased.

The primary responsibility of Reliability and Quality Assurance lies with our department and the resposibility for mission related activities is shared with the Aeronautical Engineering Department.Industrial visits were arranged  for Aerospace Engineering department students to

·        Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC)

·        Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., (HAL)

·        ISRO Propulsion Complex (IPRC)

·        Taneja Aerospace & Aviation Ltd., (TAAL)  and

·        Indian Air Force Station, Bangalore

            These visits helped them gather knowledge about rockets, satellites, launch vehicles etc. Students learned a lot about india’s recent advancements in space technology and students were given demonstrations with the help of scaled models and videos. Many motivational talks are being given to make the students work more on space technology

Department Facilities (highlights):

 

Lear Jet Aircraft:

The Department of Aerospace Engineering has a Lear jet 8 seated VIP aircraft with ground run condition. It is located in hanger number:3 with all necessary ground power unit.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) LAB:

 

Computational fluid dynamicsis a branch of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze problems that involve fluid flows. Computers are used to perform the calculations required to simulate the interaction of liquids and gases with surfaces defined by boundary conditions. With high-speed supercomputers, better solutions can be achieved. Ongoing research, however, yields software that improves the accuracy and speed of complex simulation scenarios such as transonic or turbulent flows. Initial validation of such software is performed using a wind tunnel with the final validation coming in flight tests. The CFD is also used as an analysis tool in the areas of launch vehicle dynamics , reentry dynamics and high speed heat transfer. It saves the time and money of the aerospace engineers by realtime simulations.

 

The CFD Lab serve as a basic  computational Platform for Design, Research and Educational  activities.The main Computational Platform consists of a 40 Node Linux OS based Cluster. The basic unit is a Xeon  GHz Quad pro processor and a ten such units make up the total system and one of these units constitutes as the main server. The Software installed is ANSYS 12 CFD Version. The Investment Amount for this Lab is 15,000,00 INR
