International Institute for Aerospace Engineering and Management (IIAEM) which is a collaboration between Jain University and Society of Indian Aerospace Technologies & Industries (SIATI) offers engineering courses in the field of Aerospace. IIAEM works with JU-SET to prepare the students in Aerospace Engineering for research oriented profession as well as careers related to industrial designing, problem solving and innovation in aeronautics sector.
Other than graduate and postgraduate courses in Aerospace Engineering, IIAEM also have Ph.D. programs and specialized M.Tech programs for working professionals. With an aim to train students in acquiring skills required to undertake industrial tasks with minimum on-the-job training and workplace orientation, these courses provide relevant training in the areas of Aerospace Engineering. IIAEM focuses on grooming students professionally and personally to become Aerospace Engineers who are exposed to theory, associated laboratory based practical experiments, and project work as a part of Activity Based Learning (ABL). The specialization details of various programs are as follows:
Existing five tracks (Aerospace Structures, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Propulsion, Avionics and Manufacturing and Management) continue with improvisation in the syllabus content which is further tuned to industry needs and practice. The Institute also offers a special program (Aerospace Engineering Degree) for working professionals (3 years) leading to achieve M. Tech degree subject to satisfactory completion of course work and a research project in the above areas of specialization.
In order to enhance the educational experience of the students, it is being proposed to establish a design laboratory for skill development in aerospace beyond confines of the syllabus. As important as final assessment and theoretical fundamentals, design is best understood as a process that involves research, collaboration, problem solving, and exploration of theoretical and practical standpoint, precisely the essential learning outcomes that are highly valued by the industry.
At present, the following Value Added Programs are being conducted at IIAEM:
Flight Lab training at IIT Kanpur or at Taneja Aerospace Aviation Limited, Hosur – Experiments conducted in Flight lab for B.Tech/M.Tech Students. This will expose the students to various aspects of the aircraft like flying, aircraft systems, navigation, and ground operations and also involve them in learning the basics of aircraft performance evaluation.
Short term courses are conducted by IIAEM for scientists and engineers who belong to other organizations and are held in the area of their specializations or related fields to enhance their knowledge and to connect with their peers.
