Market up for aircraft engineers

Coimbatore:A predicted shortfall of 5,000 aircraft engineers in the next few years will stand any graduate of aircraft engineering in good stead in terms of starting their career, said Dr P.R. Balaji, dean, academic affairs, Nehru College of Aeronautical and Applied Sciences.

With the explosion in air travel and the need for tightly controlled safety regulations supplemented by the ongoing demands for better, more efficient and more economic aircraft, aviation graduates find themselves with a strong choice of options, he said.

“Every year, around 210 aeronautical engineers graduate from our institution in addition to the 75 aircraft maintenance engineers. As air transport is growing and at the same time aircraft and engine components are undergoing continuous improvement in terms of efficiency, material, processes and as fighter aircraft, helicopters and gas turbines for power sectors and marine require regular improvement, overhaul and maintenance, they would be in great demand,” he said.

A lot of job opportunities for aeronautical engineers are also available in countries like United States of America, France, the UK and Germany. Therefore, aeronautical or aviation engineers from India and all other parts of the world flock to these countries, he said.
