The Department of Aeronautical Engineering at M.A.M. School of Engineering was started in the year 2010. The present faculty strength is Eight and is headed by Dr.P.V.K. Perumal who has 38 years of experience in defence research, aircraft design and development, academic teaching which includes two years of post Doctoral research at NASA Ames research centre. The Department laboratories are furnished with highly relevant equipments.
Aerodynamics laboratory, Aircraft structures laboratory –I and II, Propulsion Laboratory, Aero Engine and Airframe Laboratory and Aircraft System Laboratory are well established.
The Aerodynamics laboratory consists of 300 x 300mm subsonic open circuit wind tunnel, water flow channel, Hele-shaw apparatus, blower with force balance and models of various kinds. The Aircraft structures laboratory consists of electrical strain gauge, strain indicator, hinged bar suspended by two wires, beam test setup, column test setup.
Also well equipped production technology laboratory, strength of materials laboratory, Fluid mechanics and machinery laboratory and Thermodynamics laboratories are available. Spacious and well furnished class rooms exist in sufficient numbers. A modern digital library with sufficient collection of books and journals caters to the students' needs. Guest Lectures have been arranged for all subjects periodically . The students association was started in August 2011 named as "FLYGARE". Association office bearers are selected from students to conduct and fulfill the needs of the students through this association. Industrial visit to reputed organizations was arranged for each and Every semester.
Aeronautical Engineering is one of the most challenging fields of engineering with a wide scope of growth. This field deals with the development of new technology in the field of aviation, space exploration and defense systems. It specializes in designing, construction, development, testing, operation and maintenance of both commercial and military aircraft and their components as well as missiles. Aeronautical industry is at the forefront of scientific and technological developments that make it one of the most technically advanced and exciting industries to work with.
It deals with all the technical details and mechanisms behind all flying bodies. It specializes in the designing, construction, development, testing, operation and maintenance of both commercial and military aircrafts, spacecrafts and their components as well as satellites and missiles. Aeronautical Industry provides an environment for innovation and excellent career development.
A lot of companies hire Aeronautical Engineers to do the following work
The companies which hire Aeronautical Engineers are commercial aviation companies, space research agencies, civil aviation, research centers (industrial, government and academic). Few of the top companies which employ Aeronautical Engineers are
The job of an Aeronautical Engineer is a very prestigious one and the pay is very good. It should be every engineers dream to get into NASA. A lot of Indian Aeronautical Engineers has accomplished their dream of getting into NASA.
The Principal, HOD and staff of aero Department are extremely pleased to congratulate and appreciated the following students of Aero went for in-plant training in various industries.
