The Aerospace Engineering programme of University of Liège teaches students to master cutting-edge techniques in mechanics and computer simulation of the physical phenomena related to the field. The training focuses on the knowledge required to join an engineering team and, more specifically, on advanced knowledge in aerodynamics, continuous media, structural analysis (static, dynamic, thermal and fluid mechanics), CAD (Computer-Aided Design), materials and means of propulsion.
At the end of the Master's Programme, the Aerospace Civil Engineer will have acquired the following skills:
- They have a solid technical background in the core fields of static, dynamic and thermal structural analysis, fluid mechanics, materials, virtual prototyping and digital modelling.
- They are able to put into practice the advanced techniques in aeronautics and/or space based on the teaching they have received in the fields of propulsion and turbomachinery, theoretical and experimental aerodynamics, flight mechanics, aerospatial structures, satellite design, physics of the atmosphere and spatial instruments.
- They have mastered computer-aided design and have an in-depth understanding of the different facets of modelling and simulating aerospatial components (i.e. solids, fluids and materials).
- They understand that airplane, turbomachinery and satellite design is a process which relies intrinsically on several engineering disciplines. Through completing the aircraft design project, they are able to seek an acceptable compromise between the, often conflicting, constraints of different disciplines.
- They are familiar with concrete engineering projects as a result of the long-term internship in the sector which they can choose to undertake, and as a result of the drone and nanosatellite design projects to which they can contribute.
- They are equipped with a significant capacity for abstract thinking, which enables them to resolve new problems completely autonomously and independently. Their training and Final Dissertation also exposed them to many research issues.
- They have gained experience of teamwork as well as inter-personal skills through completing the group work included in several of the courses on the Master's programme. They are also capable of communicating and summing up the results of their work effectively in spoken and written English.
