B.Tech. (Aerospace Engineering) - Structures

DETAILS

B.Tech Aerospace Engineering with specialization in Structures program was started with an objective to create industry – ready professionals by training students in wide variety of areas involving aeronautical, avionics and space technology. Structures specialization program is nourished with experienced faculty from nationally recognized institutions and foreign universities. There is a dedicated Research Center with high performance computational facilities. 

The Aerospace Engineering is combination of Aeronautical Engineering and Space Technology. Aeronautical Engineering has sub domains like, Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Structures and propulsion. Also, application-orientated courses such as Aircraft Design, Helicopter Engineering, Rockets and Missiles, etc. are taught.   

Structures specialization includes courses like Aircraft Structures I & II, Aeroelasticity, Composites. 

As new aircrafts are being manufactured with composite structures to reduce their weight. There are two main activities in this course. The first is lectures which emphasize the fundamentals of structural mechanics and analytical approaches for analysis and design of aircraft structures.

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.
