B. Tech. 2014-18

B. Tech. in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering has emerged as a field that focuses on using materials, structures, thermodynamics and control towards enhancing human mobility. Aerospace engineers, who specialize in areas such as structural design, propulsion, navigation and control, instrumentation, and propulsion communication—develop new technologies used in aviation, space exploration and defense systems. The B. Tech. degree course in Aerospace Engineering at the Alliance College of Engineering and Design, ensures that its graduates not only have a strong theoretical foundation but receive relevant practical experience through its advanced testing, simulation, and workshop and laboratory based learning. Aligning to industry demands, the course also offers emerging subjects such as satellite communication, hardware-software integration and the use of computer-based tools that assist in solving engineering problems.
