Does space tectonics captivate you? Do you wonder how flying machines work? Are you thrilled by the aeronautics technology? If you have ever desired to become a rocket scientist, then yes! Aerospace engineering is the career you should opt for! Aerospace engineering is concerned with the building and the development of aircraft and spacecraft. It basically deals with the designing and building of machines that hover. After the gradual arrival of technology, from this branch, two specializations have evolved - aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering.
Avionics engineering consists of the electrical side of aerospace engineering. As flight technology progressed, by including craft operating in outer space in it, the term "aerospace engineering" has now replaced it instead of astronautical engineering.
Both the branches have different significance in their own ways. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is often familiarly referred to as "rocket science", involves designing aircraft such as powered lighter-than-air craft, gliders, fixed-wing airplanes and jets, autogyros, and helicopters whereas, the astronautical engineering focuses on the design and development of spacecraft.

    Areas of Research

  • Space systems
  • Estimation and filtering
  • Data Handling




# 1

The candidate must pass the higher secondary school examination:Thisccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc is sofnkkdvnkdfvnkdv dkvdkv dkvdvdme text!
  • with science stream, i.e. Science (Physics, Chemistry, and Maths)
  • with a fairly high percentage of marks in the aggregate.

# 2

  • For IITs, it is mandatory to qualify the JEE mains and advance.
  • For other engineering colleges in different states have their respective qualifying examinations.
  • The duration of the course is 4 years although IITs and NITs offer five-year integrated Master’s degree.

# 3

If somebody wants to pursue master's program, then he/she needs to meet the following criterion:
  • The eligibility criteria for pursuing a master’s degree is holding a bachelor’s degree (B.E/B.Tech).
  • For premier institutes, you need to qualify GATE and for other international universities and IVY League colleges you need to appear for GRE and IELTS/TOEFL.



There are a number of opportunities in this field.
Aerospace engineers have the opportunity to develop technologies which can be used in aviation, defense systems, and spacecraft.
They can specialize themselves in areas such as aerodynamic fluid flow, structural design, guidance, navigation and control, instrumentation and communication, robotics and propulsion and combustion.
They can even specialize themselves in designing different types of aerospace products such as commercial and military airplanes, helicopters, remotely piloted aircraft and rotorcraft, spacecraft, including launch vehicles and satellites, and military missiles and rockets.


Engineers in this field can expertise in one or more related fields like aerodynamics, thermodynamics, celestial mechanics, flight mechanics, propulsion, acoustics, and guidance and control systems.
The importance of aerospace engineering has been rapidly increasing in the fields:

  • Aerospace engineering operations
  • Architectural and engineering managers
  • Computer hardware engineers
  • Passenger aircraft design
  • Spacecraft design
  • Industrial Management
  • Missile and Defense Research
  • Payload specialist

Salaries and Perks

The average pay of an aerospace engineer is within a range of Rs 7,00,000 to 9,00,000 per annum. In different countries, it varies like in the United States, Aerospace Engineers earn an average of $106,000 to $108,000 per year.

Top Institutes

Best Institutes of the country offering Aerospace Engineering include:


(Multiple Locations)
The top IITs offering aerospace engineering course are IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay. IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur. Admissions to these institutes are done through a two-tier Joint Entrance Examination test consisting of JEE mains and JEE advanced. These offer you a very high scope of research if you are really interested in Aerospace Engineering.


The Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs) are a group of science education and research institutes in India. These institutions have been declared by Act of Parliament as insituations of national importance, and are intended to be the IITs of basic sciences. These also provide a wide scope in aerospace engineering.


Indian Institute of Science (IISC) is a university for scientific research and higher education. IISC is widely regarded as India's best university. It is one of the best colleges in India for aerospace engineering with ample of research opportunities, no wonder you can land in an internship with NASA.

Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology(IIST)

The Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) is a government-aided Institute and deemed university for the study and research of space science . It is the first university in Asia to be solely dedicated to the study and research of Outer space. IIST was set up by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) under the Department of Space. IIST offers regular engineering undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate programs focusing mainly on space science, technology, and applications.

Defence Institute of Advanced Technology(DIAT/IAT)

Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT) is the premier deemed university under the Department of Defence Research & Development, Ministry of Defence, Government of India. It also provides with many opportunities in the same field.
