Aeronautical Engineering 

What is it about?

Aeronautical engineering is the specialized branch of engineering for the aviation industry. This discipline involves studying, construction,designing,and science of the airplanes and other space crafts. Aeronautics branch uses the Aeronautical Engineeringscience of propulsion and aerodynamics. To become a successful engineer in Aeronautics, you must be alert, must have an eye for detail, and possess a high level of mathematical precision for success. This is so because the development and manufacturing of a flight vehicle is extremely complex and demands a careful balance and compromise between abilities, available technology,design, and costs involved. This branch mainly deals with the business, technology, and other aspects related to aircraft. A significant part in aeronautics engineering is a branch of physical science called aerodynamics, which deals with motion of air and the way in which it interacts with objects in motion, like an aircraft.
