Broad areas of on-going research are:
Aerospace department has 127 international journals in last 11 years published in various peer-reviewed, Scopus-indexed and well reputed journals in their respective fields. The faculty and students have attended/published their works in 59 international conferences and 16 national conferences.
A low cost Hybrid Aerostat was fabricated by the students of Aerospace Engineering guided by faculty and lab technicians. This unique low cost Aerostat has a maximum payload capacity of 0.25 kg, can reach up to 150m altitude and can stay up continuously for 5 hours. It has great potential in the area of surveillance like live video transmission, atmospheric studies, etc.
Quadrotor, or flight with four rotors, was developed as a part of undergraduate project. This 0.75 kg weighing quadrotor can carry a maximum payload of 0.1 kg, fly up to an altitude of 30m and stay in the air continuously for 5 minutes. This device finds application in aerial photography for surveillance and can be used for disaster management.
Unmanned Aerial vehicle (UAV) is fabricated in-house in Aerospace labs for carrying out experiments in flight testing laboratory. This is a unique set-up by Aerospace lab to study the flight dynamics characteristics of an aircraft by taking the measurements of various flight parameters when aircraft is in flight.
The UAV used for experiment with a tricycle-type landing gear has a wing span of 1.6 m with all-up weight of 2.25 kg. It is powered by 1000 kV motor and can stay up continuously for 5 minutes.

Students of Aerospace department, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham have successfully started their career in Airbus, Rolls Royce Engine division, TUM Germany and Indian Armed Forces as officers.
Students from this department have been successfully completed their part of course work at various foreign universities like KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, University of California, Davis and San Diego through the foreign exchange program.
Hydraulic Compression Moulding Press is used to develop high strength composites.
The specimen used in the press can be subjected to a maximum load of 500 tons and a temperature up to 500 degree Celsius simultaneously.
Kamov 25 is part of the Aircraft Design Lab. This anti-submarine, shipboard helicopter developed by the Kamov Bureau of Russia. The Kamov- 25 acquired by Amrita was operated by the Indian Navy.
MiG- 23 is part of the Aircraft Design Lab. Students are given On- Job Training (OJT) by faculty and lab technician specialized in aircraft maintenance. The MiG- 23, manufactured by the Soviet Union in the 1970s, used to be a prized possession of the Indian Air Force.
Rolls Royce AVON is a Turbo Jet Engine that has a claim of being the most successful engine post World War II. It was in production till 1974 and used in military as well as civil aircrafts. The engine in Aerospace lab was procured by Amrita from Indian Air Force for students to better understand the working of Jet engines.
Pratt & Whitney JT8D is a Turbo- Fan Engine majorly used by Boeing, McDonnell Douglas for their aircrafts. This engine was procured by Aerospace department from Blue Dart aviation to give hands-on experience in understanding aircraft engines.
The Suction- type Wind Tunnel is used as a part of Aerodynamics lab and for carrying out various projects related to Aerodynamics. This 900X 600mm cross section low speed wind-tunnel has a maximum speed capacity of 35 m/s with an option to have multiple pressure taping points along the chord or span of the aerofoil.
Provides hands-on experience to students for their flight testing, aero-design and controller design studies.
