Aeronautical engineering branch is offered in quite a few colleges in our state. This branch is dealt only in JNTU affiliated colleges, there is no such type of course dealt in OU. It is easy to learn unlike other ones. The good thing about the syllabus is that it also includes subjects regarding Space. And there is also a proposal to rename Aeronautical Engineering to Aerospace Engineering. Till date, the course is called as Aeronautical Engineering only, applicants should make a note of it.

What is this branch about…?
In this course we deal with the airplane and rocket engineering. The course provides a strong base for the work involved in airplane industries. It gives an outer view of structure of the aircraft, and how does it fly.
The following aspects are dealt in the course:
What is an airplane.
How does it fly.
Study about various engines.
Development from one level to other.
Reaching higher speeds.
Development of engines to reach great speed.
Understanding about the control and stability.
Design of an aircraft all together.
And basic knowledge of space flight.
Basics of Intermediate:
The course requires some good knowledge in mathematics and physics. Also, student with zero knowledge in physics of intermediate can survive in this course but need to have good interest in the subject.
Flight vehicle design.
Practicals to be done:
Every subject mentioned is backed up with decent amount of practical work in the colleges. Except helicopters and rockets, all the practical works are present. Practical work does not mean that you are taken to an aircraft and you do some work, it only tells us how the airplane is practically flying, it is purely laboratory work.
There are only limited number of job oppurtunities, a student entering into this course should not wholly depend up on jobs but should opt for higher studies. There are only few companys which involve aero projects. these companies may involve projects on structures and propulsion.
