Post graduate Program in Aerospace Engineering

The M.Tech. program is designed to acquaint the student with the various aspects of Aerospace engineering through several courses, both introductory and in the specialized area followed by research, leading to a thesis on a topic in the area. A student in the M.Tech. program is required to complete a minimum of 8 courses and 32 units (two semester load) of research leading to a thesis.

In the first and second semester, a student in the M.Tech. program will be registered for 8 courses (4 courses in each semester). Towards the end of the first semester he will be assigned a thesis supervisor based on his / her field of specialization and availability of the faculty. In the third and fourth semester he will continue research work towards completion of his thesis.

Guidelines for Admission of Foreign Students in PG Program

  1. The applicants should send the applications (on plain paper) together with all supporting documents directly to the Dean of Academic Affairs (DOAA).
  2. The DOAA will send the applications to the concerned Departments and try to identify the mentors (adviser) for the candidates. Together with this, the Department committee (DPGC) will find out the suitability of the candidate. The committee has to be convinced that the candidate has a reasonably good background to earn 7.5 CPI every semester.
  3. On the basis of the recommendations of the Department, DOAA and the Chairman-SPGC will prepare the documents and get the approval of the Chairman-Senate for admission.
  4. At this stage, the offer letters (admission only) will be sent to the candidates and they will be advised to contact the HRD ministry of their own countries for formal permission etc.
  5. The selected candidates will also be suggested to find out the sponsorship. For the students from the European/North American countries, the problem may be trivial. However, we shall help the students, who will not be able to find out a sponsorship from elsewhere. We shall try for their support through ICCR .
  6. Once all these are settled, the student will be asked to fill out a form (basically, name, passport number etc.) and submit it to the local Indian Embassy. This is in addition to his/her application for obtaining visa. In India, we shall also send requests to our home ministry through MHRD for the approval of a long-term stay.
