Career training in aeronautical engineering can get you your dream job in a prestigious organization.

Courses in Aeronautical engineering

The basic degree required for becoming an aeronautical engineer is a B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) or a B. Tech (Bachelor of Technology). One can also acquire a diploma in Aeronautical Engineering. Most of the reputed engineering colleges and the Indian Institute of Technology's (IIT) in India offer degree and post-graduate degree courses in Aeronautical Engineering. Students can also look for admission in the polytechnic institutes which have diploma courses on offer.

Eligibility Criteria for Aeronautical Engineering Courses

In order to pursue a B.E. or B.Tech Course in Aeronautical Engineering, one needs to qualify the higher secondary examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with a good aggregate percentage. It is also mandatory to qualify in the Joint Entrance Examinations (J.E.E.) which the IIT's conduct in January and May every year. Besides the IITs there are some other institutes which also conduct entrance examinations for the admission of students.
