Department of Aerospace Engineering


Aerospace Engineering deals with design and development of aircrafts, launch vehicles, and spacecrafts. Unlike most traditional ground based systems, optimality and reliability are of paramount importance in such systems. This necessitates accurate theoretical and experimental analyzes of a variety of phenomena, and performance predictions of a variety of complex systems. Aerospace Engineering is the discipline which is closest to what is popularly known as “Rocket Science”.

Four broad sub-disciplines under Aerospace Engineering are (a) Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics, (b) Thermal and Propulsion, (c) Design and Structures, and (d) Materials and Manufacturing. Faculties of Aerospace Engineering at IIST are graduates of reputed Institutions. They are supported by experienced and competent Technical staff. Aerospace Engineering Department is in the process of setting up several instructional and research Labs. We believe that engineering education is incomplete without exposure to real life phenomena and without developing the ability to experimentally investigate the performance of actual systems.

Aerospace Engineering Department has close links with related groups in ISRO, and plans to develop collaborations with groups working in similar areas in other industries and academic institutions. Faculty, students and staff of Aerospace Department, hope to create new ideas and new systems and processes through their research and development activities. Our goal is to use such R&D activities and the formal learning process to transform bright youngsters into creative and competent Aerospace Engineers.
