Aeronautical Engineering is one of the frontier branches of engineering dealing with the study of the principles and technology to design, manufacture and maintain highly sophisticated products such as aircraft, missiles and space satellites.
The branch also specializes in the evolution and research of commercial and military aircraft, missiles, spaceships etc. Eternal vigilance and mathematical precision happen to be the two watch words for this academic discipline.
The specializations in aeronautical engineering includes the areas like structural design, navigational guidance and control systems, instrumentation and communication or production methods or it can be in a particular product such as military aircrafts, passenger planes, helicopters, satellites, rockets etc.
The qualified professionals may work in areas like design, development, and maintenance as well as in the managerial and teaching posts in institutes. The demand for aeronautical engineers in airlines, aircraft manufacturing units, air turbine production plants is generally high.
Individuals aspiring for this field should be highly talented, self-motivated, excellent team players, innovative and lateral thinkers. They should also have the capacity for highly technical and analytical thinking.
The average start up salary in this field ranges from 1.5 lakh to 3.0 lakh per annum. The salary depends on academic excellence and skill set of individuals. The gross salary of a skilled and experienced aeronautical engineer varies between Rs 40,000-1.25 lakh per month.
