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.

Learning outcomes

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.

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
GMAT admission requirements GMAT The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a test intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. GMAT contains 4 sections - Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal. The score has a range from 200 - 800.

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at desiganated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
PTE Academic admission requirements PTE Academic PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. The score refers to a total score which ranges between 10 and 90.
