B. Tech. in Aerospace Engineering is a four year professional undergraduate program offered by Amrita School of Engineering. Aerospace engineering deals with the design, construction, and study of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft. The prescribed courses of study and syllabi cover areas like, design, structures, propulsion, aerodynamics and systems. The laboratories and workshops, detailed in the curriculum, have been framed to take up the challenges in Industry and focus themselves on research and development. The student has access to the latest versions of many analysis and design packages.

Tie-ups with the pioneering institutions like National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Indian Space Research Organizations (ISRO) etc., have served as eye-openers on the complexities of real life problems, both for the students and faculty members.


To be the best Department of Aerospace Engineering,known for its teaching, research, applied engineeringand service to society.


To achieve the stated vision, our mission is to ensure continuous improvement in each of the following:


By updating the curriculum and continuously improving the pedagogy to keep up pace with advances in the field of Aerospace Engineering, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of this technology domain.


By inculcating research interest in students by offeringstate of the art and multidisciplinary topics as projects.


Applied Engineering

By including lab courses and design projects,whichinvolve open-ended problems, in the curriculum;therebydemandinginnovative approaches.

Service to Society

By imparting knowledge on environmental issues related to Aerospace Engineering and including value based programs to ensure that the student appreciates societal needs.

Program Educational Objectives

Aerospace Engineering graduates will be able to:

  • Confidently pursue higher studies and research.
  • Work in core aerospace industry, which covers diverse technology domains
  • Become an entrepreneur confidently.
  • Meet societal/national requirements.
  • Perform well in any field allied to fundamentals of Aerospace engineering.

Program Specific Outcomes

After successful completion of the program, the graduates will be able to:

  • Understand governing principles and apply them in the fundamental disciplines of Aerospace Engineering (aerodynamics, guidance & control, propulsion and structures).
  • Use methodology and tools pertaining to fundamental design of aircraft and rockets.
  • Functionin multidisciplinary teams in the Aerospace Engineering domain.
