Characteristics and objectives
Students should expect a challenging programme with a specific focus on the design, construction, maintenance, management and testing of space and aeronautical vehicles (both with rotary and fixed wings) with the relevant subsystems. The course synopsis is split into two different pathways: one for students with a deeper interest in aeronautics and the other for those with a preference for aerospace. Both pathways are made up of two components:
a) A broad understanding of a number of important modules in industrial engineering common to both pathways. These include aerospace structures, manufacturing technologies, on-board systems and structural dynamics;
b) A more pathway-specific focus on strictly aerospace or aeronautics-related modules. The former include astrodynamics, asset control, space propulsion and space measurements, the latter encompass aeronautical propulsion, flight dynamics, aeronautics systems and materials.

Occupational opportunities
Our MEng course aims at providing graduates with the skills required by national and international aerospace companies and with the right profile to match recruitment criteria for agencies as well as public and private bodies in the aerospace sector.
In detail, our aeronautic pathway aims at producing engineers highly skilled in the management, maintenance and conversion of aircraft.
Our aerospace pathway gives to graduates the capability to take part in space mission activities as the course provides them with the necessary toolkit to define the mission profile, the scientific and technical requirements and to translate mission objectives into the language of structural engineering, design and testing.
Our graduates can expect to find jobs around the world in the best companies and research centres, thanks to their acquired skills which enable them to thrive in the aerospace and aeronautics sectors.
