Programme aims

Second Cycle Degree/two-year Master graduates must acquire a level of preparation and specialisation that enables them to assume technical and organisational roles in professional contexts that require knowledge of the fundamental methodological and operational aspects of engineering, prioritising the aspects specific to the field of aerospace engineering but without neglecting the general aspects of industrial engineering. Graduates must be able to apply analytical, and numerical simulation tools and experimental laboratory methods. Aerospace and astronautical engineers must be able to produce physical/mathematical models to analyse the performance characteristics of aircraft and satellites as well as the structure of their physical environment. They may also be involved in the study of advanced methods to manage aircraft mission scenarios and to plan satellite missions using information and processing systems in aerospace environments. These objectives are achieved through study plan that offers a sound foundation in physics and mathematics, gained through specific modules of the master's degree programme, followed by the acquisition of professional and operational skills in the aerospace disciplines, focusing in particular on aerodynamics, flight mechanics and dynamics and aerospace structures. Moreover, thanks to the two tracks offered by the programme, students will acquire specific skills in the fields of atmospheric and space flight technologies through the study of disciplines related to the design of aircraft, helicopters and remotely piloted aircraft and those related to the design of satellite platforms and space missions. The study plan concludes with an internship and a substantial dissertation project, with ample opportunity given to students to carry out autonomous activities. Indeed, by carrying out laboratory work, students will develop the skills necessary to plan, implement and analyse project results, including those with a high level of complexity.
