Aeronautical Engineers work on the design, construction and technology of the aircrafts, aeroplanes, missiles and spacecrafts. It is a branch of Aerospace Engineering. The video below will help you understand the various kinds of works and areas on which the Aeronautical Engineers.



The aeronautical engineers study the practices of aerodynamics and various technologies associated with aircrafts. They work on different technology platform to enable the unique functionalities and features.

They need to understand the basic dynamics of the aircraft and the physics behind that. A good understanding astrophysics is also required. While choosing your degree program in Aeronautical Engineering, please consider the reputation of the college as well. In India, there are only few colleges that offer a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. The opportunities for Aeronautical Engineers are huge both in India as well as abroad. It's a wonderful career option, very exciting and involves a lot of hardwork. Wish you all the best.

Structural analysis
This field entails the analysis of static and dynamic loads acting on an aircraft or flight vehicle, the design of a structure capable of withstanding these loads, the choice of construction materials and production methods and the performance of the completed airframe with regard to strength, fatigue and flutter testing before it is released for flight. Complex computer simulations are often used to perform these functions.
Aerodynamics
This is the study of airflow over an aircraft or flight vehicle to determine its configuration, stability, control, and performance and power requirements. This is often done with the aid of scale models, which are tested in a wind tunnel.
Propulsion
This field involves computational fluid dynamics (CFD), thermodynamics, gas dynamics and the strength of materials. It entails the choice of appropriate vehicle engines. Engineers in this field of study occupy themselves with the design, development, production, assembly and testing of aircraft engines that must meet certain power and performance requirements.

Systems
This field involves definition, stimulation, integration and evaluation of all subsystems of an aircraft/missile to ensure that it meets all requirements and functions well. System engineers or project managers are responsible for integrating all these fields.
Manufacture and production
Engineers in this field must ensure a product of high quality. Rigid standards and stringent quality control requirements are maintained throughout the production process.
Avionics
This field involves aspects such as flight instrumentation, radar, computers, navigation equipment, communication systems and censors (for height and airspeed). Mechanics and electronics are involved in this field of specialization.
Servo- and power systems
Advanced lightweight and compact servo-control and power systems are required for the stability and control of modem aircraft and missiles. Both hydraulic and electric systems are used.

Dear aspirant

Thanks for choosing CareerGuide.com!!!


An aeronautical engineering is a new branch of engineering science and it deals with design, development, manufacturing and testing of commercial air lines. Lots of students confuse between aero space engineering and aeronautical engineering and often think both degrees are the same. but the truth is they are entirely different. An aeronautical engineer can work in aerospace company too and the vice versa.

1. Air line manufacturing companies: Aeronautical engineers can work at air line manufacturing companies like the boeing, air bus and many more. At these companies you can work in designing of air crafts, body, wings, air pressure, transponders, electrical systems, gauges, and every other technicalities involved in the air craft. You will only work for commercial air lines like the passenger air line companies most often.
2. Air line engine manufacturing companies: You can also specialise in engine manufacturing sectors of aeronautical engineering. You will be specialised in design, manufacturing, research and development of engines and companies like the general electric, rolls royce employs aeronautical graduates. Even graduates with mechanical engineering, physics, maths and statistics can have jobs in aeronautical sector .
3. Research and development: You can also work for research and development with companies if you have a MTech aeronautical engineering or a PhD aeronautical engineering degree. These higher degrees will qualify you to work as a researcher or a scientist in aero companies. Lots of companies and universities employ phd candidates as post doctoral researcher or doctoral scientist where these candidates constantly research and develop new techniques for major air lines and solve their technical issues. Almost any university that has an aeronautical department can recruit you as a researcher for them.


4. ISRO: Even ISRO attracts aeronautical engineers to work for them. lots of students think these national space laboratory does not recruit these degree holders. Aeronautical students will understand the air pressure and study in depth about measuring air pressure and flying bodies. Therefore these candidates will be of a great potential in space science too as similar concepts can be applied in manufacturing of space vehicles too.

5. Aviation consultant: You can also work as an aviation consulatant. technically students should first complete a B.Tech aeronautical degree and then study MBA aviation management. After this you can work for any air line companies in their technical consulting division or corporate advisory division like the hr, marketing, operations and finance management.

All the best.
