Profile of the programme The objective of the Aeronautical Engineering PhD Program is the training of highly qualified researchers in the field of Aeronautical Engineering, capable to develop autonomous work on fundamental or applied research, that can contribute to the extension of the frontiers of knowledge in this area and aimed either at the university or business environments
Key learning outcomes At the end of the course, the student should be able to design, adapt and conduct scientific research autonomously. He should also be able to pass on this knowledge to others through presentations and scientific communications
Occupational profiles of graduates Positions in academia, industry and commerce, where they can teach and / or develop new knowledge through research and technological development
Learning facilities The DCA has a set of laboratories, complemented by a technical support office, a tool shop, a materials room and a specialized workshop where it is possible to build components and prototypes. FabLab is also available, where it is possible to manufacture advanced components for the development of prototypes, thus complementing the already existing capabilities in the Department.
- Aerodynamics and Propulsion
- Anemometry
- Avionics and Control
- Structures and Vibrations
- Computational Fluid Mechanics
- Materials
- Research in Transportation
Each DCA research group has its own current computing capability. This capability allows both the use of various commercial analysis and simulation programs and the development of software for specific applications.
