Propulsion and Power Profile

The specialisation courses in the Propulsion and Power profile (18 ECTS in total) cover relevant aspects in turbomachinery, combustion (including tutorials in the Faculty propulsion lab), internal flows, advanced heat transfer and methods for modelling, simulation and application of propulsion and power systems. As for the FP profile, some courses have a theoretical approach and aim to provide a deep understanding of the governing physics, while others are more applied and require programming skills. Students can also select a number of elective courses (for a minimum of 11 ECTS) to extend their knowledge, for example, in the areas of advanced aircraft design and environmental impact, or to deepen into the domain of thermodynamics and alternative energy systems.
