In 2020 the faculty of Aerospace Engineering is celebrating its 45th anniversary. On top of that, 80 years ago Prof. Van der Maas started the department of Aerospace Engineering at the faculty of Mechanical Engineering.


Innovation has always been a focus point within the faculty and we want to keep fulfilling the role of gamechangers. During our anniversary year, we therefore take a look at the future of our field of work. What are innovations within space instrumentation? What are we working on in the field of sustainable aviation? What are the latest developments for bio-inspired drones?


In the course of the year, the faculty will organise a range of activities to commemorate the lustrum. The theme is Gamechangers.
