Program Description

MSc in Aeronautical Engineering

Linköping University

This programme offers a holistic view on aircraft design. An aircraft is a complex, integrated, closely connected system of various technologies and disciplines such as aerodynamics, structure, propulsion, actuation and other on-board systems.

All these disciplines need to be optimised in order to achieve the functionality and efficiency required of an aircraft. The latter part of the programme involves a project in which these disciplines come together and challenge students to design, build and fly an aircraft, or a subscale version.

Industry affiliations

Linköping is the aviation capital of Sweden and one of few aviation cities in the world. Saab Aeronautics, the producer of the highly successful Gripen fighter aircraft, is a major actor in the region. Other related companies and military aviation establishments that reinforce Linköping’s aviation character are located in or near the city. The Aeronautical Engineering programme benefits from this, as some of the teachers have affiliations to the industry. Moreover, there is close research and education collaborations between the university and the industry.

Contemporary tools

The first year of the programme deals with the fundamentals of aeronautics, such as aircraft design, aerodynamics, engineering system design, product modelling, and aircraft systems and installation. Throughout the programme, special attention is given to a thorough progression with significant use of contemporary engineering design tools. A mix of elective and mandatory courses prepares you for your master’s thesis durign the final semester. There is a possibility to specialise within Aerodynamics, Aircraft System Design or Aircraft Structure.

Career opportunities

This programme prepares you for a career in the aerospace industry, ranging from conceptual aircraft design and aircraft engineering to related fields such as vehicle engineering or wind turbine engineering. Students will also be prepared for a research career.
