Hi yar. . This is sarath,now doing Aerospace technology in anna university(MIT-Campus). this semester we ve two specialization to proceed further 1) Launching technology (specially for Mech stream) 2) Satellite technology (specially for electronic stream) syllabus are formed with ISRO guidance syllabus as follows: satellite tech- (Elements of satellite, satellite communication,spacecraft power system, Rocketry&space mech, spacecraft navigation systems, mathematical modelling & simulation) launching tech- ( CFD, Launch vehicle Aerodynamic , missile guidance &control, finite element method, composite material & struct. Rocketry & space launch vehicle) we are from electronic stream in UG(B. E. ECE). Kindly suggest us which specialization we can take. For future point of view & can electronics students study launching tech . which one has more scope, regards -sarathkumar. From what I can tell… Satellite technology is good for you and transition smooth from UG (with ECE). It will be an uphill task if you choose Launching tecnology. With Sat. Tech. Your range of employment will be broad and unrestricted like in Launch Tech. Nowadays all communication is Satcom. The advances in communication technology became so much that it needs a course in itself. You’ll crack it at MIT. You’ll find yourself more useful there. With Launch technology either you have to go to ISRO (or NASA if you really make a mark) or DRDO’s DRDL cluster where Dr. Abdul Kalam was director during 1990s. I feel the choice is not as much as it is with the former. No point taking up a course in space vehicle launch and not able to go anywhere near it. Whereas with Satcom degree you’ll find more opportunity as this subject has permeated all Communications field.
