F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions)

Answers to some FAQs from Prospective Students

To whom the programme is mainly addressed to?

The course is mainly thought for students who want to achieve an advanced knowledge in the Aerospace Engineering area, in an international cultural environment.

The programme, targeted to students with a sound technical background, decision-making and leadership potential, will equip students with skills for the management of complex aerospace engineering projects, design and analysis of aeronautical and space systems, including their dynamics and control, materials and technologies, processes and propulsion needs.

It is particularly indicated for those students who want to spend a period of study abroad with the international programs offered by the University of Bologna (Erasmus+, Overseas, Double Degree programmes and others).

May I ask to be transferred from a master degree course I'm already attending in another University?
