Other useful information

Important Aeronautical multinationals and the Apulian Regional Aeronautics District are located in Brindisi, where the Course is held. The Aerospace Engineering provides all theoretical and practical knowledge on the whole set of topics relating to the Aerospace field, i.e. Flight Mechanics (both Atmospheric and Spatial), Aerospace Structures and Constructions; Aerospace Systems and Installations, Fluid Dynamics, Aerospace Propulsion and Industrial Engineering Design and Methods. The Course is organised to offer its students the choice among three tracks: Aerospace Design, Aerospace Technology and Aerospace Systems each providing a high-level of interdisciplinary teaching.

 

Course description

Important Aeronautical multinationals and a specialised Aerospace ecosystem of SMEs are present in University’s neighbourhood such as Leonardo’s Aircrafts and Helicopters divisions and AVIO GE. The Apulian Regional Aeronautics District is located at the same premises in which the Course is held. The Aerospace Engineering provides all theoretical and practical knowledge on the whole set of topics relating to the Aerospace field, i.e. Flight Mechanics (both Atmospheric and Spatial), Aerospace Structures and Constructions; Aerospace Systems and Installations, Fluid Dynamics, Aerospace Propulsion and Industrial Engineering Design and Methods. The Course is organised to offer its students the choice among three tracks: Aerospace Design, Aerospace Technology and Aerospace Systems.
A minimum GPA of 70% and a certified B2-level mastery of English will be considered as highly preferential by the interview committee. In addition, the consistency of the Bachelor’s degree and the courses taken relating to the key subjects characterising the Master in Aerospace Engineering will be checked upon and evaluated.
Our Aerospace Engineers can find a job in big multinationals active in the design and production of aircrafts and/or propulsions, SMEs providers of components and services, firms active into the maintenances and logistics of aircrafts, airports’ management companies or bodies, public bodies for the certification of civil aviation and flight assistants, armed air forces.
The final exam consists in the writing of a dissertation on a subject chosen by the student among the topics of the Programme. The thesis, produced under the guidance of one or more supervisor/s, is of two kinds: 1) related to a project or an experimentation in university labs or other external organisations; 2) related to basic or applied research theme.
