All the faculty of the department qualified in Aeronautical Engineering with different specializations are involved in continuously upgrading their skill. The activities of the department are governed by various committees such as Board of Studies, Department Advisory Board etc .in which the external expert members are drawn from well reputed educational institutions, industries and research centres. The curriculum is periodically reviewed in pace with the global industrial scenario utilizing the services of resource persons. Introduction of the choice based credit system enables the students to select the courses of his/her choice in various inter disciplinary areas of engineering. The department has state of the art infrastructure and laboratory facilities providing conducive learning environment to the students and faculty . The ongoing industry consultancy services and research projects are the motivation to the students learn beyond the curriculum and carry out innovative projects. Various Associations and professional bodies are actively involved in promoting co-curricular and extracurricular activities, aimed to improve the leadership qualities of the students. Internship in the leading industries and research centres such as HAL, NAL, ADA, ADE, DRDO etc are the good opportunities to understand the latest developments in the field of Aeronautical Engineering. The students are successful in pursuing higher studies in the leading institutions such as IITs, in India and leading universities in abroad. Well structured placement training enables the students to get placement in Government and Private sectors.
