Why choose this field?
The global aerospace industry contributes hundreds of billions of dollars to the world economy. The UAE intends to spend US$ 136 billion on the aviation industry, with plans to become one of the global aerospace hubs. Technologies developed by aerospace engineers are used in aviation, defense and space exploration, giving you various career paths to choose from.
The B. Tech (Aerospace Engineering) course at Amity University Dubai gives students a sound understanding of the design, construction, and study of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) rockets and flying crafts. With access to one of the most advanced high-tech Aerospace labs equipped with a turbo jet engine, Armfield c15-10 wind tunnel and fully functional scaled models of aircraft reciprocating engines our students gain first-hand experience of what they can expect in their careers
Our various labs provide students with great insight into the field of Aerospace Engineering by giving them first-hand experience of what they can expect in their future careers.
