Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.
Aviation studies the practical aspects of machine-based flight. Students of this subject may study airplane design, flight test protocols or other aspects of heavier-than-air aircraft. Later jobs in this field include airline pilot, aircraft engineer and safety inspector.
There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Master in Aerospace Engineering The main objective of the Master’s programme in Aerospace Engineering is to educate skilled engineers for the European aerospace sector. Gra degree holder,graduates of the programme will possess solid theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as the ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks, and the experience of working within a team. They will also be adept at communicating effectively and working within an international environment – skills that translate tooffer potential global career opportunities.Programme outlineThe first semester consists of a set of courses to enhance basic skills, as well as give an introduction to various aspects of aerospace engineering. The basic courses are compulsory and constitute almost one third of the course work. The student then chooses one ofout our four tracks for further specialisation: sLightweight Structures, A Spalightweight structures,lightweight S Each track has severala few compulsory courses, but most are optional out of a set of recommended courses. There are many possibilities to combine courses between the tracks. The student then chooses one ofout our four tracks for further specialisation – in the direction of Aeronautics, Space, Systems or Lightweight Structures. Each track has a few compulsory courses, but most are optional out of a set of recommended courses. There are many possibilities to combine courses between the tracks. Degree ProjectThe fourth semester is spent on a five month (30 ECTS) thesis project, where the student has the opportunity to investigate a problem in- depth. The thesis project is performed either in industry or at a university department, in Sweden or abroad. The results are presented in a Mmaster's thesis ands as well as in a seminar.Career prospectsThe employment market for European aerospace engineers is strong and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Airbus is the main European aerospace company in the civil sector, however a large part of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and also worldwide.Government spending in tThe space sector is dynamic and also increasingevolving, with major projects such as the Galileo navigation satellite project and challenging scientific missions.
