Programme

Master's Degree in Space and Aeronautical Engineering

Course Structure

The course is divided into two semesters (Sept. to January, and Feb. to June), organized as follows:

  5 ECTS 25 ECTS
1st Period 205001 Computational Engineering Elective Courses
  10 ECTS 6 ECTS 14 ECTS
2nd Period Research Management and Aerospace Projects  Elective Courses* Master's Thesis

*This is the recommended structure for elective courses. However, the student can decide to change the distribution of this elective courses along the academic year as long as the total amount of credits is equal to 31 ECTS or higher.

Core Courses (compulsory)

1st Period – Computational Engineering

Practical advanced, experimental and computational Aerodynamics. Advanced Fluid Mechanics, focusing on computational Fluid Mechanics and Turbulence. Application of Aeroelasticity and Aircraft Structural Dynamics.

2nd Period – Research Management and Aerospace Projects 

This course has a common Group of Research Seminar (2.5 ECTS). Besides, the students can develop either an Individual Research Project (7.5 ECTS) that will be linked to their Master's Thesis OR a Group Research Project (7.5 ECTS), aimed at developing a real European Union Horizon 2020 Project in the Space Sector.

*Elective Courses

Depending on the chosen elective courses, the student can follow one of the four following tracks:

plane Air Transport and Airport Management

turbofan Propulsion and Thermal Systems Engineering

rocket Aerospace Vehicles Engineering

satellite Spacecrafts and Space Systems Engineering
