The Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), located at Valiamala, Thiruvananthapuram-695547, under the Department of Space, Government of India, the first Space University of Asia, offering courses from Undergraduate to Doctoral level in Space Science Technology will hold the IIST Admission Test (ISAT) 2012, for admission to the B Tech Programmes in Aerospace Engineering, Avionics and Physical Sciences, offered by the Institute, from 9 am to 12 noon on 21st April, 2012 (Saturday) at Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Calicut, Chandigarh, Chennai, Dehradun, Delhi, Dispur, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Port Blair, Ranchi, Thiruvananthapuram, Varanasi & Vishakapatnam.
The Online Registration for ISAT 2012 will commence on 1st November, 2011.
Assistance is provided to all B Tech students to cover the cot of education, boarding, lodging and health care. On successful completion of the course, with prescribed academic standards, the students will be absorbed as Scientists/Engineers in ISRO.
ISAT is an All India Admission Test, open to all eligible students who have completed the prescribed qualifiying examination under the (10+2) pattern from a recognised board or pre-university. Question Paper framed for ISAT is of objective type and consist of three separate sections on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
1. B.Tech. (AEROSPACE ENGINEERING) : is a 4-year under-graduate degree programme oriented towards the needs of space technology, and has significant overlap with Mechanical Engineering, including Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Sciences, and Space Dynamics. This is similar to programmes of the same title available in many reputed Institutions in India and abroad.
People with B.Tech. degree in Aerospace Engineering can further specialize in Flight Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Thermal and Propulsion, Structure and Design, and Manufacturing Science...
2. B.Tech. (AVIONICS) : is a 4-year under-graduate degree programme comprising of subjects of study in Electronics and Communications Engineering programmes, in addition to study of Advanced Electronics in Digital Communication, Control Systems and Computer Systems used in Aerospace Systems.
People with B.Tech. degree in Avionics can later specialize in areas like DSP, RF & Communication, Antenna, Power Electronics, Micro Electronics, Control Systems etc.
3. B.Tech. (PHYSICAL SCIENCES) : is a 4-year under-graduate degree programme oriented towards application of basic sciences in Space Science and Technology. The programme lays a strong foundation in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and gives exposure to important applications of space technology such as Remote Sensing and GIS, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Earth System Sciences.
People with B.Tech. degree in Physical Sciences can later specialize in areas like Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, Solid Earth Science, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Remote Sensing & GIS, and Chemical Systems ….
