History and Growth of the department:

The Department of Aerospace Engineering (earlier known as The Faculty of Guided Missiles) was established in 1960 to impart knowledge to Scientists of DRDO and Officers of Armed Forces to take up the challenges in design, development, and use of guided missiles. The later scope was widened to Air Armaments & UAVs. The department is engaged in teaching and research in broad areas of Aerospace Engineering. The department endeavors to produce quality students, undertake project/consultancy work, conduct seminars, symposia, and workshops, update knowledge of working scientists/defence officers through continuing education/short term programs, tailor-made courses, and conduct/guide quality research work to meet the mission of DIAT. Currently, the department offers M.Tech. in Aerospace Engineering with a specialization Guided Missiles, Air Armaments and UAVs. Department also offers a Ph.D. program in different areas of Aerospace Engineering. Apart from the degree programs, the department also regularly conducts several short-term/tailor-made courses for DRDO, Armed Forces, PSUs, and other organizations as per the users’ requirements.
