The programme provides a preparation particularly focused on issues of design, operation and maintenance of aircraft and their on-board systems. The objective is to prepare highly culturally and professionally qualified technicians able to carry out and manage activities related to research and design in the fields of aerodynamics, materials, lightweight structures, aircraft systems and aerospace propulsion in national and international contexts, both in autonomy or in cooperation.



Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics and Systems, Propulsion, Structures, Rotary-wing Aircrafts.

Mandatory courses

Aerodynamics, Flight Dynamics, Aerospace Structures, Dynamics and Control of Flexible Aircraft.

Other courses

Fundamentals of Aeroelasticity, Nonlinear Analysis of Aerospace Structures, Fundamentals of Combustion Processes in Thermochemical Propulsion, Management of Aerospace Projects, Gasdynamics, Aircraft Instrumentation & Integrated Systems, Aircraft Design, Heat Transfer and Thermal Analysis, Numerical Modelling of Differential Problems, Rotorcraft Design, Aircraft Engines, Airport and Air Traffic Management, Aerospace Technologies and Materials, Communication Skills.

Final Thesis


The graduate finds employment in aeronautical and space industries; in public and private bodies for experimentation in the aerospace field; in aircraft fleet management and maintenance companies; in air-traffic control agencies; in the airforce; in industries producing machinery and equipment in which aerodynamics and lightweight structures play a significant role. Aeronautical engineers are particularly sought after in related fields. In fact, they may be involved in the design of terrestrial or nautical vehicles or large buildings or bridges or even in the design of power plants. Graduates are also in demand in the lightweight constructions industry, in the motor industry in the areas of monitoring the mechanical behaviour of structures subject to stress.
