Specialization in Composites
- Specialization in Composites
About the Course
New aircraft and other challenging engineering applications are becoming increasingly dependent upon the unique capabilities of high performance composite materials. This course addresses the broad field of advanced composites and is designed by experts from the college, other universities, major aerospace companies and government research organizations. The course appeals to graduates of engineering, materials science, physics or chemistry. Students develop an outstanding knowledge of composite technology allowing them to take up specialist roles in industry and research.
The course is designed for students who have interest in Aeronautical Structure, Aerodynamics and Computation Fluid Dynamics. Aeronautical engineering prepares students for exciting and rewarding careers with the required technical expertise.
- Aircraft structures
- Aerospace propulsion
- Rocketry and Space Mechanics
- Theory of vibrations
- Finite element method
- Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Aero elasticity
- Helicopter Aerodynamics
- Industrial Aerodynamics
- Fatigue & Fracture Mechanics
By the end of the course the students are exposed to expert knowledge in Aeronautical Engineering subjects and they apply innovative ideas to their final year projects.
The lectures that are delivered during the course is arranged in a series of modules. Modules include:
- Analytical techniques, fractography, electrical characteristics
- Composite systems (polymer, metal, ceramic)
- Design, joining, finite element analysis
- Detection of defects, non-destructive evaluation
- Fibre/matrix interfaces
- Introduction to composites, fibres
- Laminate analysis
- Manufacturing science
- Mechanical testing; fracture
- Stiffness and strength
- Stress analysis
The students after completing their course get placed in top aeronautical industries and government agencies in India, such as, the following;
Indian defence organizations such DRDO, DRDL, NAL, ISRO, etc.
Private organisations such as L&T, Mahindra Satyam, HCL, Saffron, Taneja Aerospace Limited, etc.
Overseas organizations such as Boeing, Airbus, MRO, GE, etc.
The candidates must have passed Bachelor’s in Aeronautical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or its equivalent with first class.
Every student is required to undergo summer training during the vacation period to get exposure to the latest technology in the field.
For project work, Aeronautical department encourages students to concentrate on reseach areas and introduce innovative ideas for the development of their knowledge.
Duration : 2 Years
