"I am very happy to inform that Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace is started in the year 2015. The first batch of students of Aerospace Engineering have proactively taken interest to start Team Antariksh to augment academics with expert lectures, visits, participating in national and international technical competitions. Above all these, they have initiated a project to design and build a nanosatellite to enhance technical knowledge in the field of space. Bengaluru has large number of aerospace organizations including ISRO and DRDO. Three to four years of discussions among various groups indicated the potential of this sector. Many multinationals have shown interest to start companies in Bengaluru. This provides opportunities apart from addressing research challenges. I wish the students best wishes for this great initiative."
