Aerospace Engineering

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur

The MS(Research) program in Aerospace Engineering is two years (4 semesters) program. The students admitted to this program are expected to complete 36 credits of courses (typical one semester load) and the rest of the duration is expected to be spent on research work leading to a thesis. This program is more research intensive than the M.Tech. program.

A student admitted to the MS(Research) program in Aerospace Engineering is associated with one of the four groups:

  1. Aerodynamics
  2. Flight Mechanics and Control
  3. Propulsion
  4. Structures, Structural Dynamics & Aeroelasticity

The details of the areas encompassed by each group and IDS can be found in “Research Areas”.

Eligibility

Candidates with B.E./B.Tech. degree in Aerospace / Aeronautical, Mechanical, Automobile, Production, Civil, Chemical, Naval Architecture, Electrical, Electronics / Electronics and Communication, Metallurgy / Metallurgy & Material Science, Instrumentation, Mechatronics; four year BS degree in Physics, Mathematics or MSc degree in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering Physics with valid GATE score can apply to the M.S. (Research) program.

Candidates working on research projects in the department for 2 years or more are eligible without a GATE score.

Admissions

Announcements for admission to the MS(Research) program are made twice a year typically around April or May and October or November. Please check the institute website (https://iitk.ac.in) for the announcement and details of the admission procedure.

During application every candidate has to mention the choice of specialization out of the 4 groups

The department specific procedures for admission to the M.S. (Research) program are as follows:

Non-sponsored candidates are required to appear in a written test based on mathematics and basic subjects related to Undergraduate Engineering Program. Typically the candidates are required to answer five questions that include two compulsory mathematics questions and any three out of eight subject questions. The shortlisted candidates are then called for a panel interview in their choice of group.

Sponsored (By Industry / Govt. Labs) may be asked to appear for a panel interview in their choice of group.

Typically the details of the department specific procedure are shared with the applicants over email or announced on our website after the advertisement for admissions is made.
