Aerospace Engineering studies @ KITS
Aerospace Engineering is a specialized field of Engineering that involves the science & engineering of aircrafts and spacecraft including aeroplanes, helicopters, rockets, missiles, space stations, space-shuttles and other similar flying vehicles operating within and outside the earth’s atmosphere. It is one of the most important branches of engineering and has helped humankind to dominate the skies and space above.
The Department of Aerospace Engineering at Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences (KITS) was launched in the year 2009 with the primary objective of producing Aerospace Engineers to meet the growing demand and to serve the civilian aeronautical as well as the defense oriented sectors. Our budding engineers acquire skills in core domains like aerodynamics, stress engineering, materials and structures, aircraft design, Propulsion, Space dynamics, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, smart manufacturing that enables them to compete physical laws and cruise through time and space by being creative and innovative, thus opening-up the limitless opportunities in an endless Space.
The Department of Aerospace Engineering at KITS offers the following programs:
1. B.Tech – Aerospace Engineering (4 years Full-time)
2. Ph.D – Aerospace Engineering (Part-time & Full-time)
The students are trained in aero design and analysis software and offered value-added courses in digital manufacturing, Artificial intelligence in Aero manufacturing, Value engineering etc., to keep them abreast with the latest developments. Over these years, the department of Aerospace Engineering has groomed 500+ equipped-engineers who are occupying strategic positions at MNCs and research organizations like Quest Global, Capgemini, Agnikul Cosmos, Accenture, Infosys, GTRE, NAL to name a few. Moreover, one-in-four of our graduates have been to top universities like Cranfield, Coventry in UK; Purdue in USA, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Australia and Technion in Israel to continue their research and postgraduate studies.
With India’s remarkable achievements in space and the tremendous growth of air travel, the demand for trained professionals in Aerospace engineering across the globe is increasing like never before with a wide range of opportunities in research and higher studies.
