Description

The main objective of the Master’s programme in Aerospace Engineering is to educate skilled engineers for the European aerospace sector. Graduates of the programme will possess solid theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as the ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks, and the experience of working in a team. They will also be adept at communicating effectively and working within an international environment – skills that translate to global career opportunities.

Career prospects

The employment market for European aerospace engineers is strong and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Airbus is the main European aerospace company in the civil sector, however a large part of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and also worldwide.

Government spending in the space sector is also increasing with major projects such as the Galileo navigation satellite project.

Contents

The first semester consists of a set of courses to enhance basic skills, as well as give an introduction to various aspects of aerospace engineering. The basic courses are compulsory and constitute almost one third of the course work.

The student then chooses one of four tracks for further specialisation – Aeronautics, Space, Systems or Lightweight Structures. Each track has a few compulsory courses, but most are optional out of a set of recommended courses. There are many possibilities to combine courses between the tracks.

Degree Project

The fourth semester is spent on a five month thesis project, where the student has the opportunity to investigate a problem in-depth. The project is performed either in industry or at a university department, in Sweden or abroad. The results are presented in a Master's thesis and in a seminar.

A Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) of at least 180 ECTS. Specific requirements as specified by each Master’s programme.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
