MSc Aerospace Engineering Tracks

In the master Aerospace Engineering students can choose between six tracks. A track is a general field of Aerospace Engineering (discipline) and a profile is a refined direction within that field of expertise (specialisation). The master programme Aerospace Engineering has a common outline for all tracks. Each comprises core, profile and elective courses, literature study, an internship and the MSc thesis. The study load differs per track and profile.
