Admission Notices

    Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur carries out original research of significance and technology development at the cutting edge. It imparts training for students to make them competent, motivated engineers and scientists. The Institute not only celebrates freedom of thought, cultivates vision and encourages growth, but also inculcates human values and concern for the environment and the society. A premier teaching and research centre today, engaged in engineering science instruction, in-flight laboratory work, aerodynamic testing, and indigenous design and fabrication of advanced facilities and instruments. This department was inaugurated in 1964. The department specializes in aerodynamics, flight mechanics, propulsion, and aerospace structures. It has a unique flight laboratory with four powered aircrafts, four gliders and a 1000 m runway. All other academic institutions in the country make use of this facility. The Gliding and Soaring centre attached to the department has significantly contributed to the aviation awareness amongst the young through its glider pilot training program.

This department was inagurated in 1964. The department specializes in aerodynamics, flight mechanics, propulsion, and aerospace structures. It has a unique flight laboratory with three powered aircrafts, four gliders and a 1000 m runway. All other academic institutions in the country make use of this facility. The Gliding and Soaring centre attached to the department has significantly contributed to the aviation awareness amongst the young through its glider pilot training programme. The department has completed a large number of sponsored and consultancy projects for the ARDB, ISRO, DST, AICTE and ADA. The expert faculty has designed and developed high-speed and low-speed wind tunnels, measurement methods using hot wire and laser Doppler anemometry, industrial and wind energy aerodynamics, subsonic and transonic flow computations, hypersonic flow computations for re-entry vehicles, and the design and optimization of the fibre-reinforced composite structures for static, dynamic and random loadings.

    The M.Tech. program is designed to acquaint the student with the various aspects of Aerospace engineering through several courses, both introductory and in the specialized area followed by research, leading to a thesis on a topic in the area. A student in the M.Tech. program is required to complete at a satisfactory level, a minimum of 8 courses and 32 units (two semester load) of research leading to a thesis. In the first and second semester, a student in the M.Tech. program will be registered for 8 courses (4 courses in each semester). Towards the end of the second semester he will be assigned to a field of specialization on the basis of his aptitude, background, and availability of the faculty. A thesis supervisor will also be assigned about the same time. In the third and fourth semester he will continue research work towards completion of his thesis. The Ph.D. program is aimed at helping the student acquire proficiency in the chosen area through course work, followed by doctoral research. A Ph.D. student is required to complete a minimum of 4 courses and 32 units (two semester load) of research subject to a minimum total academic load of 4 semesters. He is also required to pass the Ph.D. comprehensive examination held on completion of his course work. A student in the Ph.D. program will register for four elective courses, as advised by DPGC member belonging to his area of specialization, if thesis supervisor has not been decided at the time of registration. In other cases, he may register for thesis on the advice of supervisor. In the subsequent semester he registers for research and courses as advised by his supervisor. At the end of the course work the student will appear for the Ph.D. comprehensive examination, and continue his research towards completion of his Doctoral Thesis.
