Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering
26-year-old Nandakishore MM from Kochi, Kerala, who has a BTech in Aerospace Engineering from IIT Madras, thinks, “India has excellent opportunities in space research. As more companies establish and expand their engineering centres in India, opportunities will increase”.
In a country where aerospace hasn't opened up as well for the private sector, the placement for Aerospace engineers from IIT Bombay isnât all that bad. Graduates from IIT Bombay are placed all over the world, and the alumni network is immensely widespread - preferred destinations ranging from companies like Boeing, Airbus, GE, Honeywell etc. to Indian space organizations / aircraft laboratories like ISRO, NAL, HAL and DRDO. For a subject as research oriented as aerospace, higher studies ends up being a choice for a lot of students. 23-year-old Naman Rawal from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, who has been studying Aerospace Engineering at IIT Kanpur, says, “India can provide something different to the industry. It lacks infrastructure; but that seems to be changing”.
