The Thirty Second National Convention of Aerospace Engineers is being organized by The Institution of Engineers (India), Jharkhand State Centre in association with Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi at the Department of Space Engineering & Rocketry during October 27 — 28, 2018 with a Focal Theme:




Recent developments made towards the development of Indigenous Launch vehicles, Aircrafts, Missiles, Weapon Systems, Platforms and Allied Equipment for our Defence Services at leading organisations such as Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) calls for more active participation of Industries and Academic Institutions. The expertise available in our country is being utilized by several other nations as well. The progress in these areas can be well recognized by the successful flight tests of Tejas, GSLV, PSLV, NAG, Agni-V, SRE, RLV, micro aerial vehicles, Scramjet engine tests, etc.



The National Convention provides a forum for Engineers, Technologists, Scientists and Academicians to come together and discuss State-of-Art technologies on topics of Aerospace Engineering for possible collaboration and information sharing. Focussed discussion on the advances in the Aerospace Sciences and Technologies will be made. This is expected to motivate the young participants to assess the future perspective and contribute towards the technological challenges ahead. Key Note Address, Vikram Sarabhai Memorial Lecture, State-of-Art Lectures and Invited Talks will be delivered by eminent engineers / scientists.



The Institution of Engineers (India) or IEI is the largest multidisciplinary professional body that encompasses 15 engineering disciplines and gives engineers a global platform from which to share professional interest.
