Symposium: Design/Synthesis Exercise

23 June 2022 09:00 till 18:00 - By: Webredactie-LR | Add to my calendar

Join us on June 23rd for the closing of the Design/Synthesis Exercise!

To finalise their bachelor programme third-year bachelor’s students at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering are required to collaborate in groups of ten students in a period of ten weeks to make a design in the field of aviation, space, earth observation or related field. During the project, students go through the complete design process, from drawing up a program of demands, concept analysis and design, concept selection to the presentation of the final design.

During this one-day symposium all design groups will present their results and the presentations will be judged by a jury of national and international experts. The presentations will also be live-streamed.

The program for the symposium is as follows:
