Job fair Update from AeSIAA

Hi All

An update on Placement Drive.

Subject: "AeSIAA (Regd.)" Job fair Update

Dear Students and Alumnus,

It's very sad that we couldn't hold Job fair due to lack of responses from companies. It was very difficult to motivate companies in hiring for permanent position in current conditions. Our regular follow-up at least brought some interest as Intern/Temporary positions in few companies. Association will be passing the selected cv to those companies based on requirements.  Association would also communicate to candidate on the scheduled interview if required.

All the Very Best.

Best Regards,


President AeSIAA

FAQ : What should I do after AeSI exams ?

One of the most frequently asked question among AeSI Graduates is:

- What should I do after AeSI exams?

Though there are many posts in this group which can help you to get the answer of above question. However based on my industry experience, I would like to bring one very important point in everybody's kind considerations.

Yesterday somebody was asking me where should I go to learn Modeling & Simulation. 

- My answer is why do you want to go anywhere and invest your money when everything is available online.
- Take an example of MATLAB : There are so many video tutorials available which certainly are created to meet the requirements of students. Why don't you start spending one hour daily on learning MATLAB from such tutorials. Even you can download the trial version of such software.
- Most of such software organizations also develop their academic communities. Attend those communities and start discussing your projects worldwide.
- BUT does MATLAB means all about Modeling & Simulation ? or Is there any other way to do modeling & simulation. Google it ! and try to get the difference between Causal Vs. Acausal Modeling.
- Google and try to find out what is Modelica?

Examples of few Academic Communities:

1. CATIA V5 and V6 : Visit 3DS Academy at
2. Reliability : Learn about reliability. You can also download FREE MTBF Calculator (Reliability Software) at
3. MATLAB : Visit
4. Modeling & Simulation :
5. FEA Software :
6. ANSYS : 

All you need to have is a dedication. 

Dedication about spending two hours daily online to learn and to stay yourself updated about the latest technology. It will not only help you to get updated but will also help you to connect with industry experts worldwide. In fact you could also reference your project and showcase it to the world, invite others to join your project and even find sponsors for your project.
This project work will also help you to do the facial of your resume which indeed will help in million ways at the time of interview. 

In short, It's better to learn these software online rather than finding out a good training center in your community.

Happy Learning !

Nobody owes you a job

Nobody owes you a job

Received many résumés from graduates who has passed out a year ago but their resumes says nothing. It looks like the résumé of a freshly minted graduate.

No applied projects or demonstration of knowledge and skill? Just a mere listing of the subjects, software and skills.

No one owes you a job? Just because you graduated doesn't mean you will get a job.

The recipe to get a job is simple. Give something of value.

Skills + Knowledge = job

Your graduation gives you the latter but you need to acquire skills.

Skills just mentioned do not have the same value as the skills that have been applied.

Mention of an applied project related to ANSYS fairs far better than just the mention of ANSYS in the software known section.

Mention of Catia in the project related to uav modelling carries more weight than Catia mentioned in software known section of the résumé.

Projects, academics or professional, using varies softwares gets more attentions than the mere mention of their name.

Some might say, I learnt the software from an institute but didn't get an opportunity to use it. Who stopped you?

If the world doesn't give you an opportunity, if you are really interested, no one is stopping you to do an open source project or something on your own.

The web is an opportunity. Not many utilise it.

So if you are a fresher, instead of shooting "Can I get a job?" emails to 10 random seniors, survey the landscape where you want to work. Identify the technical skills that are sought by the industry.

Cook up a project related to those skills and start learning. And keep at it for 90 days and then send your resumes.

There is no other way.

On a side note, registration for the placement drive is still on. This is an excellent opportunity for freshers and experienced aeronautical engineers, so If you haven't registered yet, do so now.
