About the mini-MOOC
This course is based on material taught to first year bachelor's students at the faculty. The course is designed to highlight some important aspects of the coursework and showcase the expected level of academic rigor for first year bachelor’s students. We’ve selected only a few topics to cover during this mini-MOOC, including a basic history of flight, the atmosphere and how aircraft fly. We’ve chosen these sections because they are fundamental to the understanding of aerospace engineering and its more advanced concepts.
The mini-MOOC takes around three hours to complete and is designed to be completed in a single sitting.
Please note: There is a bug in the mini-mooc: the question is about the pioneers of aviation. We are working really hard to solve this problem
You can ask questions about the mini-MOOC and give feedback year round to study-AE@tudelft.nl or by placing a message in the discussion forum on the Edge platform. In December and January senior students are available on the discussion forum to help with the lessons and assignments.
The mini-MOOC is there to help you choose the right study programme. Any prospective student is welcome to participate without any obligation to actually enrol in the BSc Aerospace Engineering. Participating in the mini-MOOC is free of charge.
For prospective students who want to enrol in the BSc, participation in the mini-MOOC is a compulsory part of the decentralised selection procedure. You must register for the course using the same email address you plan to use for the official enrolment via Studielink.
The mini-MOOC is hosted on the Edge platform, a part of the online education platform Edx.
Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering
This course is a shortened version of the full scale MOOC Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering. For a more thorough preparation for the BSc programme, we recommend prospective students to participate in this course as well.
The mini-MOOC is available 12 months per year. In December 2016 and January 2017 teaching assistants are available on the discussion forum.
