HOD’s Message

Welcome to the Department of Aeronautical Engineering. The Department is committed to impart quality teaching and guiding the students to their projects, aircraft models and higher education. The students learning process is augmented by arranged lectures by experts in the field of aeronautical engineering through student’s forum in the Department known as ADLERZ AERO ASSOCIATION. Students are also encouraged to build Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) / DRONES through professional bodies like Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI) – Chennai Branch and Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) –SAE India, Southern Section.

A team of 7 Aeronautical Engineering Students of St.Peter’s College of Engineering and Technology, Avadi, Chennai participated in the “Aero Design Challenge – 2017” (ADC), a National Level Competition for designing and developing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAVs) organized by the SOCIETY of AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS – SAE India, Southern Section and Anna University’s Centre for Aerospace Research (CASR) held at CEG Campus- Anna University, Chennai from 8th June to 10th June 2017.93 teams had registered out of which 52 under the category of Regular Class participated in ADC 2017 across India. ‘ADLERZ’ the UAV modeled and built by our Aeronautical Engineering student’s team secured 22nd rank.For this academic year 2017-2018, our students have registered two team, each team consist of Seven student members from IV, III and II year Aeronautical have registered for participating in Aero Design Challenge 2018 Competition is to be held in the month of March 2018 will organize by SAE India and Dept of Aerospace Engg. M.I.T Campus, Anna University.I am sure in times to come many students from our department will make incredible mark nationally and internationally. We hold firm belief in our ability to succeed, practice human values, and show attitude of self-reliance, confidence and commitment. I am sure that the students of the department will show a high level of professional competence in their respective areas. I wish my students all the best for all their endeavours.
