Who would have thought that we can reuse a rocket or have rockets as a commercial automobile?
The thought as such will alone give you shivering. But now it is no more a fantasy.
SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket became the first reusable rocket in the world. Unlike the traditional way of launching where the rockets will fall into the ocean, SpaceX rockets use a thruster controlled launching and it is also powered by more liquid-oxygen propellant for increased thrust.
This event had opened up the doors to an entirely new industry in aerospace engineering. Where even colonizing in other planets is now possible.
Such rapid innovations happening in the aerospace/ aeronautical industry have opened up new opportunities for engineering students pursuing them. The need for good and skilled aerospace/ aeronautical engineers is on the rise and all the industries will be craving to recruit them in the near future.
So from an engineering college perspective, how can you improve your student’s skills to work on these industries?Read more..

As part of their orientation at IIT Kanpur this year, AerotriX - a division of Skyfi Labs - organized a Glider making workshop for fresher students. Mechanical engineering fresher Lakshya Gangwar, participant from the workshop, was just as curious as the others to know what his first experience at IIT Kanpur would be like. After successfully making his first working glider, he says with a sparkle in his eyes ‘It was an amazing thought and initiative to organize such a knowledge enriched workshop. I really had not thought that the first workshop in IIT Kanpur would be such interesting. Thank You AerotriX and Skyfi Labs.
