Aerospace engineering field deals with construction, testing and operation of flight vehicles aircrafts, helicopters, rockets and spacecrafts. The courses are based on the fluid dynamics, materials sciences, structural analysis, propulsion, automatic control and guidance and development of computer software. aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. The former deals with craft that stay within Earth's atmosphere, and the latter deals with craft that operate outside of Earth's atmosphere. Aerospace engineering is not to be confused with the various other fields of engineering that go into designing these complex craft. For example, the design of aircraft avionics, while certainly part of the system as a whole, would rather be considered electrical engineering, or perhaps computer engineering.
A number of electives are also available for specialization in areas related to the field. The department offers specializations in the areas of Aerodynamics, Dynamics and Control, Propulsion, Structures and Systems Design and Engineering.
While Aeronautical Engineering was the original term, the broader "aerospace" has superseded it in usage, as flight technology advanced to include craft operating in outer space.Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is referred to colloquially as "rocket science".
