Course Description

The MSc in Aerospace Engineering aims to form graduates that will be able to design and implement aerospace projects, focusing on more productive but environmentally friendly technologies; so as to respond to the today’s challenge of a cleaner sky and less noisy and non-polluted environment, as well as to develop safer, faster and cheaper transportation for a growing society. This Master course objective is to provide to the graduates the skills required by national and international aerospace companies and with the right profile to match recruitment criteria for agencies as well as public and private bodies in the aerospace sector and also other engineering sectors, for example Automotive. In detail, MCAST highly targeted learning aerospace pathway aims at developing career-enhancing skills for aerospace professional in the aviation sector and in the expanding civilian space business in fields such as the management, maintenance and conversion of aircraft, R&D of technologies for new generations of aircrafts, and civilian applications for smart satellites and sub-orbital spacecrafts. The course offers the students the possibility to specialize in one of three most highly-demanded fields, such as: Structures and Measurements for Aerospace; Aerodynamics; Space Technologies.
