Flight Performance Profile
The specialisation courses (14 ECTS in total) included in the Flight Performance profile deal with aerodynamic design of high subsonic transport aircraft, experimental simulations (including tutorials in the Faculty wind tunnel), aeroelasticity and knowledge-based engineering (digital design methods to support the development of complex systems). Some courses have a theoretical approach and aim to provide a fundamental understanding of the governing physics, whereas others are more applied and require good programming skills. Finally, students can choose a set of elective courses, for a minimum amount of 15 ECTS. The selection of these courses is made in consultation with the profile coordinator and enable students to deepen their knowledge in some specific areas, such as computational fluid dynamics, aircraft manufacturing and aviation sustainability aspects.
