Key Details Duration: 2 years (Full-time) ECTS: 120 Number of places: 50 Start: September every year Language: English Coordinator: Prof. Paolo Tortora Location: Forlì Fees: about 2,800€ per year Admission requirements For a successful attendance to the course, the enrolling student must have acquired basic knowledge in mathematics, physics and engineering. To access the Master Degree course in Aerospace Engineering the student must have earned a Bachelor's (First cycle) degree, or another five-year laurea degree (Italian) or another equivalent qualification obtained abroad. The Master Degree course admits a planned number of students each year, in relation to the available resources. The number of admitted students and the selection methods are published yearly in the relative “Call for applications”. Admission to the restricted access degree programme is subject to demonstration of the required knowledge and skills, by passing the exam with a minimum score indicated in the “call for applications”. Students must also provide proof of knowledge of English language of at least B2 Level, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If the aforementioned certification, issued by a “Centro Linguistico di Ateneo” (CLA) or an equivalent certifying entity, is missing, the AEROSPACE ENGINEERING Degree Programme Board can verify that the candidate's English language competence is at least sufficient for a correct understanding of the classes and for the examinations to be carried out in English. This entry requirement will be evaluated on the basis of the candidate's curriculum vitae and, if necessary, by means of an interview with a specifically nominated Board, so as to enable the student to enrol on the course anyhow. In that case, a certification of English language of at least B2 level has to be obtained anyway by the end of the first year of enrollment. Only nationals from the USA, U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are exempt from the proof of English language proficiency requirement. Applicants who obtained a Bachelor's degree in one of the mentioned countries, or a Bachelor's degree taught in English are also exempt from the proof of English language proficiency requirement. Programme profile The 2nd cycle degree programme produces professionals with a high level of preparation and specialization, able to fill technical and management positions in working contexts which require specific skills in basic science and industrial engineering, with a specific focus in aerospace engineering. Graduates must be able to apply analytical tools, numerical simulation techniques and experimental laboratory methods. Professionally, graduates will be able to produce physical/mathematical models to analyse aircraft and spacecraft requirements and performance and the physical environment they move in. They may also study advanced methods for air traffic monitoring and control using information processing and telecommunication systems in aerospace environments. These learning outcomes are achieved through a learning programme which, based on a solid background in physics and mathematics is completed in this 2nd cycle degree programme by some specific course units, the acquisition of professional and operative skills in all specific disciplines of Aerospace Engineering, and in particular aerodynamics, flight mechanics, aerospace structures and materials, propulsion and aerospace systems.

Special Masters Degree in Aerospace Engineering

Sapienza University of Rome
Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Italy Rome

The Special Degree in Aerospace Engineering (Code LM-28400) aims to develop experts that can be employed in advanced research and aerospace development centres. Students experience a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering [+]

The Special Degree in Aerospace Engineering (Code LM-28400) aims to develop experts that can be employed in advanced research and aerospace development centres. Students experience a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering that is not common in the industry as the complexity of each subsystem drives engineers to focus on single aspects. The Special Master of Aerospace Engineering is a two-year programme designed for students holding an Italian masters degree (Laurea Magistrale) in any engineering discipline, earned after 5 years of studies, or an equivalent degree earned abroad. However, it may be reduced to one year for students with an Aerospace Engineering degree obtained at the end of 5 years of university-level study programmes. Learning Objectives The learning objective of the Special Master of Aerospace Engineering is training experts that can be employed in advanced research and development centers in aerospace engineering. An important aspect of the program consists in giving students a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering. The capability of having a system-oriented and global vision of a space mission is not common in the industry because complexity of each subsystem pushes engineers to focus on single aspects. The design of the general architecture is assigned to the system engineer who is a long-experienced engineer that is able to have a global understanding of the project due to their experience acquired in various subsystems. System engineers are increasingly more difficult to find due to discontinuities that occur over time in the development of large space projects. Master programs in aerospace engineering tend to provide students with at most a basic education in one of the areas of aerospace engineering because of the continuous technological advancement. On the other hand, complexity of current space programs asks for professionals capable of having an insight in extremely various technical aspects. Thus, education offered by the Special Master is extremely important in the industry since it trains system engineers in astronautics. Educational Project The Special Master of Aerospace Engineering is a two-year program. However, it reduces to a one-year program for students with a master degree (or an equivalent degree) in the area of aerospace engineering . All courses are taught in English. The educational project of the Special Master of Aerospace Engineering pushes students towards practical projects. In fact, students get trained in research and development activities through an education that covers both theoretical and practical aspects. As a matter of fact, courses usually include lab activities; in the School of Aerospace Engineering the following labs are active AerosPower - Power Systems for Aerospace Lab ARCA - Automation Robotics and Control for Aerospace Lab EOSIAL - Earth Observation Satellite Images Applications Lab Flight Mechanics Lab Guidance and Navigation Lab Electronics Lab Structure and Material Lab Technologies for Aerospace Lab Thermo-acoustic Lab Thermo-vacuum and Optics Lab The School's facilities include a ground station for tracking and commanding satellites, a space simulator (thermo-vacuum, magnetic field, sun simulator), and a clean room for assembling microsatellites. Career Opportunities The Special Master of Aerospace Engineering leads to the following career opportunities in the industry system engineer for industrial aerospace projects engineer for automatic and robotic systems operator of systems for remote sensing, observation, and surveillance supervisor of space missions, including launch operations and ground operations for tracking, remote control, remote sensing, and data processing expert for engineering aspects of the effects of space environment on human beings and on parts of aerospace systems consultant for strategic and decisional processes of space agencies in research centers researcher in space systems researcher in the development of innovative materials for astronautics researcher in astrodynamics and control of aerospace systems expert for scientific missions for exploration of solar system in the area of education and cultural activities instructor for industry and military staff disseminator of aerospace culture [-]
