MVJCE is one of the colleges which offers Aerospace Engineering course in Bangalore that provides unmatched learning experiences to students.

The B.E Aerospace program was started in MVJ College, in the year 2018-19, with an intake of sixty students. The program is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University and is approved by AICTE.

  • Approved by the AICTE
  • Affiliated to VTU

There is a growing interest world over, in taking off into the trans-atmospheric region and into space. The future is going to be space stations and robotic probes. Manned missions to other planets and moon outposts are distinct future possibilities. India too has leading space programs.

Considering the growing demand for current and future requirements in the field of Aerospace Engineering, MVJ College of Engineering has founded the B.Eprogram in Aerospace Engineering. This field deals with the technology in aviation, space exploration, and defence systems. It provides specialisation in design, development, manufacture, testing, operation and maintenance of flight vehicles. OurB.E Aerospace program provides studies in space vehicle design, aerospace structural mechanics, aerospace propulsion, air and missile defence systems, space mechanics, satellite design, and spacecraft systems. Aerodynamics, rarefied gas dynamics, materials, guidance, navigation, control and flight simulation, among other topics, are taught in this branch of engineering. unmanned aerial vehicles and space stations are also covered.

A wide variety of aerospace career fields offers opportunities for high job satisfaction and excellent compensation. Scope of employment for aerospace engineers ranges from design, manufacturing, operations, and maintenance of aerospace vehicles. It opens the door to employment in ISRO, HAL, and DRDO, for their space and missile-related programs. Job opportunities abound in Defence and private sectors.
