What does the Aerospace Engineering programme teach?

Aerospace engineering programme

The development of aerospace engineering objects makes use of the most advanced achievements of science and technology in the field of energy, aerospace engineering programs, creation of new materials, creation of new computational mathematical methods and in other areas. Masters of the educational programme are taught modern methods of development, design and creation of advanced aircrafts for various purposes. Information and communication technologies are widely used in the training process.

What professional skills and knowledge are taught in this programme?

Mastery of directional management of large organisational and technical systems.

Possess competencies in designing and building highly efficient and reliable erospace systems to operate under a wide variety of operating conditions.

Mastery of modern scientific methods and information and communication technologies.

What are the special features of this programme?

The programme aims to train specialists in promising areas of aerospace technology development.

Graduates have a broad set of competencies in modern areas of science and technology.

What disciplines are included in the curriculum?

General design and management of spacecraft development.

Design and dynamic analysis of spacecraft operation.

System engineering of space rocket engineering
Thermal design of space vehicles.

In the Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering (Bachelor of Engineering) you will not only learn the practical fundamentals of engineering but also learn all about the design, construction and technology of aircraft, engines and spacecraft.

A wide range of competencies with specialisations in aircraft, flight technology, space technology and engine technology are explored. Your qualification qualifies you not only for the aerospace engineering profession, but also for many other fields.

In addition to the basic question: "Why does aircraft fly?", you are also interested, for example, in how to improve aircraft consumption and environmental impact through advanced design, or how can modern satellites help to monitor the Earth's climate? How can flight times be improved through optimal routes, or how can passengers be better served at the airport? How do engines become quieter and less polluting?

These and many other questions are discussed in the research areas of aeronautics, space technology, engine engineering and flight engineering.

Aerospace vehicles are highly complex systems with their own sub-systems. As a graduate of the department, you are suited not only to aerospace, but also to the major industries. Automobiles, rail vehicles, even ships benefit from the lightweight design of integrated systems with the interplay of mechanical and electronic components can be found in mechanical and plant engineering

Concept of space activities

The notion of space activity refers to any activity connected with the direct exploration and use of outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies.

Space activities include:

  • scientific space research;
  • space communications, including television and radio broadcasting using satellite systems;
  • Earth remote sensing from space, including environmental monitoring and meteorology;
  • use of satellite navigation and surveying systems;
  • manned space flights;
  • production of materials and other products in space;
  • other activities using space technologies.

Space activities include creation (including development, manufacturing, testing), as well as use and transfer of space equipment, space technologies, other products and services required for space activities.

Goals and objectives of space activity

The purpose of outer space activities is to improve the well-being, development and security of people and to address global issues of humankind.

The main objectives of space activity are the following:

  • provision of access to space;
  • to study the Earth and outer space
  • developing science, technology and techniques that contribute to the enhancement of economic efficiency
  • To ensure defence capability and to monitor the implementation of international treaties on armaments and military forces.

Space equipment certification

Space equipment, including space objects, ground and other facilities of space infrastructure created for scientific and national economic purposes, shall be subject to verification of compliance with requirements.

Equipment used for the creation and use of space equipment may also be subject to certification.

On completion of the certification procedure, a certificate is issued for each sample of space vehicles.

Types, forms and validity periods of certificates, conditions and procedures for their issuance, refusal to issue, suspension or termination, as well as other certification issues are regulated by legislation.

Certification bodies, manufacturers of space equipment and their respective officials responsible for violating the rules for the certification of space equipment shall bear the responsibility established by law.
