The eligibility criteria for admission into the college for this course can be either diploma, 11th, and 12th or PUC. If you've done a diploma, then you get lateral entry into the second year of B.E. 

Of course, the entry into the college requires an entrance examination result such as CET, ComedK or the college's selection examination called DSAT. I had applied for CET and ComedK. I entered the course through my ComedK result.

The cutoffs for the course of aeronautical engineering are 60% and above in your 10+ or PUC courses. If you wish to enter through CET, you'll need to have a score of 6000 or less. If you wish to enter through ComedK, you will need to have a score of 13,000 or less. Of course, this score keeps changing every year based on the previous year's performances of the students in these entrance examinations.
