The Master of Science Degree in Aeronautical Engineering offers the student an advanced scientific and professional education and gives them specific engineering skills that enable them to deal with complex problems associated with the analysis, development, simulation, and optimization of the components of a fixed or rotating wing aircraft. This Master Course focuses mainly on learning how to develop more advanced investigative and design tools, and on the nature of innovation in the aeronautics industry with particular reference to improving efficiency, reducing weight, and minimizing chemical and noise pollution. Two curricula are available.
Aerodynamics, propulsion and structures This curriculum trains engineers who are specialized in the numeric, theoretical, and experimental analysis of aeronautical materials and structures and who are provided with the technical skills associated with fixed and rotating-wing aircraft. Moreover, it provide the students with the criteria and techniques of engine design, and with the tools to predict and verify the engine performance. The skills acquired enable the student to use theoretical, numerical, and experimental methodologies to carry out the aerodynamic analysis and design problems of a complete aircraft and/or of its components.
Flight systems and air transport This curriculum covers a range of disciplines (aerodynamics, flight mechanics, automatics, robotics, electronics, and communications) that provide methodological tools for facing problems related to air transport systems. It trains system engineers in the ability to deploy integrated knowledge in telecommunications, guidance and navigation, on-board systems, flight simulation, and technical airport services, and to deal with all technological aspects of aircraft management and air traffic control.
The applicant is required to hold a three-year Bachelor Degree, possibly in Aerospace Engineering. Each candidate’s curriculum and personal background are verified. Applicants who do not meet all the curricular requirements to pass specific examinations before they can enroll.
Recipient: Sapienza University of Rome
