Aeronautical Engineering Department was started in 1998 in this institution and was the first of its kind among the self- financing Engineering Colleges in Tamil Nadu. The department was started with a strong mission to promote Aeronautical and Aero space related activities especially in the field of Aircraft design, Production and Maintenance Engineering. The department is at present encompassing Aerodynamics Lab, Aircraft structures Lab, Aircraft Structural Repair practices Lab, Propulsion Lab, Aero Engine Maintenance and Repair Lab, Design and Drafting Lab, Aircraft Design Project Lab, Aircraft systems Lab, Avionics Lab and CAD / CAM Lab etc., In addition to the related books available in the college main library, the department library also has adequate number of books on Aeronautical Engineering for reference to enlighten the staff and studying.
The department is also supported by other department laboratories such as Fluid Mechanics Production Process, Strength of Material and Thermodynamic Lab, Electrical Sciences and Computers etc., Real Aircraft systems, Electrical Systems, Landing gear and A/C Instrumentation Systems etc., are also available to provide hands on training to the students. The students learning process is augmented by arranged lectures by experts in the field of Aeronautical Engineering through the ‘students forum’ in the Department known as “Airfare Association”. Students are also encouraged to build aircraft models through “Aeromodelling Club” in the Department. Memorandum of Understanding is signed with software companies to train the students on software packages such as Ansys, Pro-E and CATIA.
Regular Industrial Visits / Seminars / In – Plant Training / Project work are arranged to HAL, NAL, DRDL, NAVAL, Air station, DRDO, TANEJA Aircraft & Aerospace Limited, CABS, Aeronautical establishment of Air force and Navy, Indian Air lines, JET Airways, DECCAN Airways etc. The Students are well placed in the leading Aeronautical Organizations. The department organizes National Level Conference every year invitees Research Scholars and budding aero engineers from other institutions and honour the best paper presenters. The department is headed by a well known senior professor and is maintaining its best position with respect to rank holders including Gold Medalists in Anna University, Chennai.
