After the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2 and hiring a new milestone in the global aerospace arena, the Human Resource and Development Ministry recently made a surprising initiative by empowering and encouraging students to choose careers in aerospace engineering and said its ‘Swayam’ portal will provide online courses on the subject from July 29, 2019.
India on 22 July 2019 had successfully launched its second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 onboard its powerful rocket GSLV-MkIII-M1 from the Sriharikota spaceport to explore the unexplored territory of the south pole of the celestial body by landing a rover.
“Indian Space Research Organisation will finally land on Moon today. Get a chance to educate yourself for Aerospace Engineering with Swayam, you never know, you can be a part of the space journey the next time,” the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry tweeted.
The ministry’s ‘Swayam’ portal had launched six online courses in aerospace engineering and these will enable and support students to acquire skills and knowledge on designing, manufacturing, and maintenance of spacecraft, aircraft, missiles and weapons systems.
Currently, the courses are available on the portal consists of 3 months ‘Aircraft stability and control’ course and ‘Design of fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles’ course of 2 months.

Both courses will be conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur.
Both courses will be directed by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur.
IIT Kanpur is directing two additional courses ‘Introduction to ancient Indian technology’ (8 weeks) and ‘Introduction to rocket propulsion’ (3 months).
While IIT Bombay is offering a 12-week course in ‘Introduction to aerospace engineering/flight’, IIT Kharagpur is offering a two-month course in ‘Vibration and structural dynamics’.

Propelled in 2016, the HRD service’s ‘Swayam’ stage has Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
The geosynchronous satellite dispatch vehicle lifted-off from the Satish Dhawan Space Center at 2.43 pm and effectively set the 3,850-kg Chandrayaan-2 into the earth circle around 16 minutes after the fact.
The mission’s prosperity got tremendous help for ISRO researchers after the July 15 dispatch was canceled pretty much an hour left after an unpredictable technical issue in the rocket.
