Admission Procedure For B.Tech. in Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST )
Hyderabad, 9 January 2015: Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology -IIST currently offers B.Tech Programmes in Aerospace Engineering, Avionics and Physical Sciences. Admission Procedure For B.Tech. in Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST ) also available in IIST’s official site.
- B.Tech. (AEROSPACE ENGINEERING) : is a 4-year undergraduate degree programme oriented towards the needs of space technology, and has significant overlap with Mechanical Engineering, including Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Sciences and Space Dynamics. This is similar to Programmes of the same title available in many reputed Institutions in India and abroad.
Candidates with B.Tech. degree in Aerospace Engineering can further specialize in Flight Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Thermal and Propulsion, Structure and Design, and Manufacturing Science.
- B.Tech. (AVIONICS) : is a four year undergraduate degree programme comprising of subjects of study in Electronics and Communications Engineering programmes, in addition to study of Advanced Electronics in Digital Communication, Control Systems and Computer Systems used in Aerospace Systems.
Candidates with B.Tech. degree in Avionics can later specialize in areas like DSP, RF & Communication, Antenna, Power Electronics, Micro Electronics and Control Systems etc.
- B.Tech. (PHYSICAL SCIENCES) : is a 4-year undergraduate degree programme oriented towards application of basic sciences in Space Science and Technology. The programme lays a strong foundation in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and gives exposure to important applications of space technology such as Remote Sensing and GIS, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Earth System Sciences.
People with B.Tech. degree in Physical Sciences can later specialize in areas like Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, Solid Earth Science, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Remote Sensing & GIS, and Chemical Systems.
