Department Club Activities

Aeromodelling Club:

Aeromodelling is the design, construction and flying of model airplanes, helicopters and rockets. It is both a Hobby and an International Sport Model aviation’s power to excite the imagination and generate enthusiasm has made it a truly international activity with many thousands of participants and hundreds of ongoing activities worldwide. Aeromodelling helps to under Physics, improve hand and eye coordination, understand the importance of team work, learn to cope with success and failure, create 3D objects, learn to work with plans, use hand tools etc. Aeromodelling is a wonderful form of self-expression that gradually leads you to a successful career as a Pilot, Aircraft Designer, Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Aero-Space Engineer etc.


Three hours of Aeromodelling every week for Session 1. (First half of the semester)
Flight test for Session 2. (Second half of the semester)

(First Person View RC aircraft)(Quad Rotor with high stability)
