Sort by:

$$\text{2 vowels can be chosen in } \binom{5}{2} , \text{3 consonants can be chosen in } \binom{17}{3}$$

$$\text{Next we observe that order isn't important so the vowels arrange themselves in 2! ways, consonants in 3!}$$

$$\text{No of words = } \binom{5}{2}\binom{17}{3}2!.3! = 10.17.15.16.2 = 81600$$
