Masters in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering embodies mechanical, electrical as well as computer engineering elements and studies the entire process of an aircraft manufacturing, from the initial stage of design to its testing and releasing on the market. Aerospace engineering also covers investigation into aerodynamic characteristics of aircraft, including behaviours and related factors such as air foil and control surfaces. Sub-disciplines of aerospace engineering include: aerodynamics, flight dynamics, propulsion, structures, and aerospace design.

Studying aerospace engineering requires very good knowledge of physics, but also fluid mechanics, propulsion, statics and dynamics control engineering, and many others.

Students enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in aerospace engineering will develop analytical, critical thinking and problem solving skills, required in order to identify design elements that may not be functional and then formulate alternatives to improve the performance of those elements and also not exceed the initial deadline of the project. They will also learn how to evaluate if products meet engineering principles, customer requirements, and environmental challenges.

Aerospace engineering graduates can work for companies and corporations that make airplanes, helicopters, missiles, defence systems. The main career prospects are: aerospace engineer, maintenance engineer, manufacturing systems engineer, materials engineer, mechanical engineer, spacecraft designer, aerospace system drafter.
