Course Introduction

RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying Module

RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying is an aeromodelling program that helps participants learn about the dynamics and design of an airplane. This program on aeromodelling would introduce the participants to the four pillars of Aerospace Engineering - Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Aircraft Propulsion and Structures, with stress on the first two topics. In this program, basics of electronics relevant to RC aeromodelling(radio controls, servo motors, brushless DC Motors, Electronic Speed Controllers, etc) would also be covered..

Automobile Design (RC Car)

"The Indian automotive industry has emerged as a 'sunrise sector' in the Indian economy" - Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce. April'13. With the automotive industry growing multi-fold every year, it is never a bad thought to think about securing a position in it. The program provides the participants with the much-required exposure to the concepts of Automobile Engineering and a hands-on experience to build your own RC Car replicating most of the systems present in an actual car!
