Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautic is a word which discovered by the combination of two different Geek Words " Aer + Nautike". Meaning of "Aer" is the " Air "And meaning of the "Nautike" is "Navigation Of The Air".Aeronautical Engineering is a division of Aerospace Engineering, Aerospace Engineering is an engineering course that mainly deals with the field of engineering and related to the development of aircraft and spacecraft. It consists of two major and overlapping branches: Aeronautical engineering and Astronautical Engineering.

Aeronautical Engineering is a course that primarily deals with the Airplanes, Jet Planes, Aircraft, Space Shuttle etc. Aeronautical Is also considered as " Sailing The Sky ". Those students who choose Aeronautical Engineering have to study Manufacturing of flight-capable machines or the techniques of operating aircraft. They work with the theory, technology, and practice of flight within the Earth's atmosphere. It supports development of new technologies in aviation and defense systems. So those students who are interested in jet planes, spacecraft etc. they can apply for Aeronautical Engineering.
