The admissions to the Undergraduate Programmes ( B.Tech) at IIST are made through the Space Institute Admission Test (ISAT). A brief information about ISAT – 2010 is given below. The detailed information is included in the ISAT – 2010 Brochure. The Brochure will be available to download from ISAT webpage from 21st December, 2009.
1. B.Tech Avionics: The programme covers what is covered in typical Electronics and Communications programmes and in addition, provides exposure to Advanced Electronics in digital and communication, control systems and computer systems used in aerospace systems. People with B.Tech Avionics degree can later specialize in areas like DSP, RF & Communication, Antenna, Power electronics, micro electronics, control system etc.
2. B.Tech Physical Sciences: This programme is oriented towards application of basic sciences in Space Science, Space Technology and Space Application. The programme lays a strong foundation in Physics, Chemistry, 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 Science can later specialize in areas like Atmospheric and Ocean sciences, Solid Earth Science, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Remote Sensing & GIS, and Chemical Systems. The curriculum will have the best blend of basic science and engineering.
3. B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering: It is similar to programmes of the same title available in many reputed Institutions in India and abroad. The programme in IIST is oriented towards the needs of space technology, and has significant overlap with Mechanical Engineering including Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Science and Space Dynamics. People with B.Tech degree in Aerospace Engineering can further specialize in Flight Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Thermal and Propulsion, Structure and Design, and Manufacturing Science.
