The master´s programme in Aeronautical Engineering at Linköping University offers a holistic view on aircraft design. An aircraft is a complex, integrated, closely connected system of various technologies and disciplines such as: aerodynamics, structure, propulsion, actuation systems and other on-board systems.
All these disciplines need to be optimised in order to achieve the functionality and efficiency required of an aircraft. The latter part of the programme involves a project in which these disciplines come together and challenge students to design, build and fly an aircraft, or a subscale version.
Linköping is the aviation capital of Sweden and one of few aviation cities in the world. Saab Aeronautics, the producer of the highly successful Gripen fighter aircraft, is a major actor in the region. Other related companies and military aviation establishments that reinforce Linköping’s aviation character are located in or near the city. The Aeronautical Engineering programme benefits from this, as some of the teachers have affiliations to the industry. Moreover, there is close research and education collaborations between the university and the industry.
The first year of the programme deals with the fundamentals of aeronautics, such as aircraft design, aerodynamics, engineering system design, product modelling, and aircraft systems and installation. Throughout the programme, special attention is given to a thorough progression with significant use of contemporary engineering design tools. A mix of elective and mandatory courses prepares you for your master’s thesis durign the final semester. There is a possibility to specialise within Aerodynamics, Aircraft System Design or Aircraft Structure.
Created in partnership with companies such as the Ford Motor Company and Jaguar Land Rover, the programme is also aimed at existing or prospective product development engineers and those working in manufacturing, particularly those working alongside product design personnel in the context of cross-functional teams and simultaneous working practice.
Students study three compulsory modules and a further three modules from a choice of five. In addition, full-time students undertake a university-based project and part-time students undertake an industry-based project.
An online study support system provides additional information and materials to facilitate student discussion.
The programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (towards Chartered status).
This course is aimed at engineers working in the automotive industry who wish to extend and deepen their skills and understanding of the field, as well as recent graduates who intend to start a career in the industry.
Though primarily aimed at product development engineers, the course offers significant value to those working in the manufacturing side of the industry and those who work alongside colleagues from product design in the context of cross-functional teams. Individual modules of this MSc can be studied as short courses.
The programme is very much one of technical engineering content, sitting in a systems engineering framework.
Students study three compulsory modules, three optional taught modules and carry out an individual project. In total the course comprises 180 modular credits, made up from 6 taught modules valued at 20 credits each, plus the project which is valued at 60 credits.
The course is mostly delivered as a series of block taught modules. An online study support system provides additional information and materials to facilitate learning and discussion. Full time students undertake a University based project and part time students undertake an industry based project.
