We have been getting a lot of reports/ news about how companies are trying to develop aerial taxis, using drones for logistics and even giving life to the visionary thought of colonizing Mars.
All these technologies are possible due to the advancements in the aerospace and aeronautical engineering and it is not going to slow down anytime soon
Students pursuing aerospace/ aeronautical engineering have a lot of scope in these industries. But getting acquainted with these latest technologies will not be easy, as these are not included in the engineering curriculum.
So you should be on the constant look-out for opportunities that will let you work on these latest technologies. Attending training programs that deals with these latest technologies will help you learn them faster.
But you need relatively longer duration than conventional workshops to learn these technologies. Your winter vacation would be a right choice to learn and get skilled in the latest aeromodelling/ aerospace technologies
You can go for winter training programs that offer you the platform to get hands-on experience with the latest technologies. A week long duration will be ideal for you to learn. As if it is very short you will not have much time to practice the learning or if it is too long you will lose interest and it becomes boring for you.
Here are some of the winter training programs offered for aerospace/ aeronautical engineering students by Skyfi Labs which you can choose and do depending upon your area of interest.
UAV’s are gaining more popularity as much as robotics, mainly due to the varied applications that it offers for the industries. From assisting in military operations to making super fast logistics delivery, UAV’s has almost penetrated into all the industries.
An innovative technology such as this won’t come with easier mechanisms. The motors, electronics that it uses are quite complicated and you will not be able to understand this technology unless you get hands-on experience on them.
As part of this winter training program, you will understand the design concepts, calculations and fabricate your own UAV. Some of the highlights of this training program are:
This particular training program is your gateway to learn and get skilled in UAVs. By doing this course, you will not only understand the theoretical concepts of UAV’s but you will also use the concepts learned to make yourself one.
You will be designing and fabricating an RC aircraft & a quadrotor as part of this winter training program.
Internal combustion engine is a rich source example for almost every possible type of heat transfer. You can see IC engines everywhere, from the smaller ones that are installed in model airplanes to the larger ones that are installed in large rocket propulsions. Before the invention of IC engines, we would need large amounts of fuel to go somewhere, but now we are able to cover larger distance with a tank that is a fraction of the size of the vehicle.
With the invention of IC engines, we were able to produce aircraft with a lot of efficiencies and that is the importance of this technology. Knowing this technology from the core will definitely help you to acquire the much-needed industry knowledge on the IC engines.
Some of the highlights of this winter training program,
If you are an aerospace/ aeronautical engineer, interested to get acquainted with the automobile technology and wants to have a career in automobile industry then this winter training program is a must do for you. You will not only understand the concepts of IC engines but will also understand the other concepts of the automobile by making your own an RC car prototype.
For some reasons if you are unable to attend any winter training programs, you can still improve your skills by building projects hands-on. Although building projects is tough, you can ease of that by enrolling for some online courses/ project-based courses to get the initial guidance and support.
To help you in this, we at Skyfi Labs have developed some amazing online project-based courses that make learning by building projects super easy for you. You can simply select the course of your choice and register online and we will send you the hardware kits & provide online content/ support to help you complete the project within your winter vacation. It's that simple!
Kits shipped in 24 hours. Build using online tutorials
