Profile of the programme
The main objective of the Integrated Master’s Degree Curriculum in aeronautical engineering is to provide sufficiently high standard qualifications for the aeronautical engineering profession that is characterized by carrying out research activities, design, analysis, project, manufacturing, construction, production, inspection, quality control and management in the aeronautics sector. Furthermore, this curriculum is also intended to enable qualified individuals to access advanced doctoral research programs (PhD) which are often required by some companies and business areas of the European aeronautics industry.
Key learning outcomes The skills to be developed by the students are:

- To possess knowledge and understanding capacity at a level sufficiently high to be the basis of development and/or allow new original applications, in research context;
- To Know how to apply their knowledge and their ability to understand and solve problems in new situations, in broad and multidiscipline contexts related to the aeronautical engineering field;
- To be able to integrate knowledge, handle complex issues, develop solutions and make judgments in situations with limited or incomplete information, including reflections on the implications and ethical and social responsibilities that result from those solutions and judgments or that sustain them;
- To be able to communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and reasoning underlying them, to either specialists or non-specialists in a clear form and without ambiguities;
- To gain skills to a life-long learning in a way that is fundamentally self-oriented or autonomous.

Occupational profiles of graduates
- Design, manufacture and operation of aircraft;
- Maintenance and operation of aeronautical facilities;
- Management systems related to aircraft and their operations;
- Research activities and development in the aerospace field.
Learning facilities
The students that are enrolled in this curriculum can complement their theoretical knowledge using facilities offered by the Department, mainly laboratories adequately equipped to prepare modern experimental and computing systems: Aerodynamics and Propulsion Laboratory, Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Avionics and Control Laboratory, Laboratory for Structures and Vibrations, Laboratory of anemometry, Materials Laboratory, Computer Laboratory, and Transport Research Laboratory.
