B.Tech. Aerospace Engineering - Defence Technology

Details

The Aerospace Engineering program was started with the objective to create industry-ready professionals by training students in a wide variety of areas involving Avionics, Space Technology and Defence Technology. The program is taught by experienced faculty from nationally recognised institutions and foreign universities. There is a dedicated Research Centre with high-performance computational facilities.

Aerospace Engineering is an amalgamation of Aeronautical Engineering and three specialisations: Space TechnologyAvionics, and Defence Technology. The sub-domains include Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Structures, and Propulsion. 

Defence Technology includes courses like Warfare Simulations & Strategies, Defence Control & Navigation, and Rockets & Missiles Fundamentals. The main objective of these courses is to emphasise on fundamentals of Control and Navigation of Defence Systems and analytical approaches for analysis of Rockets and Missiles with application to warfare strategies. ft and Satellite systems.

DESIGN YOUR OWN DEGREE


upes

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
