This programme offers a holistic view of aircraft design. An aircraft is a complex, integrated, closely connected system of various technologies and disciplines such as aerodynamics, structure, propulsion, actuation and other onboard 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 are close research and education collaborations between the university and the industry.... [-]
