Field of study

Millions of people travel by plane each year. We depend on satellites on a daily basis for communication, meteorology, Earth observation and navigation. Social developments, such as climate change, or economic motives, continually require new technology in the field of aerospace. What will the sustainable, quiet and affordable aeroplane of the future look like, for example?  In this degree programme, you will study disciplines such as aerodynamics, lightweight materials and structures, aircraft and rocket propulsion, the operation of aircraft, satellites and drones, and satellite orbital mechanics, and you will combine these disciplines in the design of aircraft, satellites and wind turbines. You will also learn to work together in teams.
