Masters 2016/2017 in Forli Italy. Aerospace Engineering is a four-semester programme with core and elective courses. The core modules are applied aerodynamics, aerospace propulsion systems, atmospheric flight dynamics, aerospace structures, automatic flight control and design methods in the aerospace industry. From the second semester, students may take elective courses which are logically grouped in an Aeronautics track and in a Space track, but that can also be selected individually. Our list of elective courses expands year-after-year, check them out regularly!
Duration: 2 years (Full-time)
Number of places: 50
Start: September every year
Coordinator: Prof. Paolo Tortora
Fees: about 2,800€ per year
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.
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. The course curriculum, including the preparation of the dissertation, leaves space for autonomous learning activities, including workshops, allowing students to develop strong skills in the planning, design, manufacturing and assembly of highly complex systems.
2nd cycle graduates will be able to operate professionally in production innovation and development, advanced design, planning and programming, management of complex systems, both as freelance or employed in manufacturing and service industries and in civil service. 2nd cycle graduates may find employment in aircraft and aerospace industries; public and private aerospace research and development institutions; air transport companies; air traffic control authorities; the air force and aeronautical sectors of other corps; manufacturing industries which require skills in aerodynamics and light structures.
