About this program

Master of Engineering Sciences in Aeronautical Engineering

Curiosity, desire to construct, freedom to put your personal ideas into practice and develop a start-up - all these features fit under this master-degree study program. It is like a two-year long hackathon, where the science-based design of a prototype will become the major source of future skills.

We see innovation in aeronautics as an interdisciplinary product, thereby your knowledge in the fields of electronics, mechanics, IT, transportation, aeronautics and any other branch of engineering will facilitate your team and provide the competitive advantage over the others.

Everyone who seeks their education at the aeronautical engineering Master’s level should have background knowledge in aerodynamics, aircraft structures, mechanics and aircraft engine types. These courses are available online before the study process begins. All were prepared by the best technical universities in world including MIT, and TU Delft.

The students of the current study program will develop the prototypes in teams, therefore individuals who seek like-minded partners or the groups with a unified idea are welcome to apply.

The teams will be provided with the consultations by the experienced businesspeople, light on the start-up development will be shed by qualified mentors and the „Futurepreneurs“ program.

The aim of the study program is to prepare highly qualified specialists who have acquired interdisciplinary and novel knowledge in the field of aeronautical engineering. These specialists are capable of constructing satellite systems and their elements, overcoming engineering challenges while developing industrial UAVs, conducting interdisciplinary research and applying the obtained results to prototype and innovation development.

Degree: Master of Engineering Sciences

Aeronautical Engineering Master’s degree study program is aimed at developing the following skills:

  • Understanding of principles of aeronautical engineering; Planning and conducting analytical, modelling and experimental research, critical evaluation of the obtained data and result application in manufacturing of the prototype
  • The ability to apply new research methods for aeronautical engineering problem investigation;
  • The ability to resolve Non-standard, vaguely described problems, identify and define standard and non-standard aeronautical engineering problems and therefore apply novel methods for specific problem solution and decision implementation
  • Innovative facilitation of novel and original ideas in the field of aeronautical engineering as well as methods applied to provide engineering solutions in multi-faced, technically undefined and not precisely described problems
  • Unified understanding the effects of aeronautical engineering on general public and the environment; Project management, team work, commercialisation and business aspects of the start-ups
  • Understanding how the technological solutions are linked to economic consequences.

Career paths

  • Establish the start-up on the basis of the prototype
  • Obtain employment in the fields of aeronautical and aerospace industries
  • Obtain employment in defence and public security institutions, energy, agriculture, transportation, logistics and other institutions where you will foster drone-based innovation
  • Design satellites, aircraft and their systems
  • Seek academic career
  • Continue your studies on a third - doctoral study cycle.
