The Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering is a graduate program of the Université de Lyon, operated by the École Centrale de Lyon.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Aerospace Engineering Master at Université de Lyon is in line with the strategic axis "Science and engineering for a sustainable society" defined by the Université de Lyon, as well as with two social challenges identified by the École Centrale de Lyon, "Aeronautics and space" and "Increasing the competitiveness of the industrial economy through innovation and entrepreneurship".


Students enrolled in the Aerospace Engineering program at Université de Lyon will acquire very high level training in both the propulsion and the material/structure focus of aerospace engineering. The later will give them a very good background for the management of complex aerospace engineering projects as well as an important insight into manufacturing and production oriented items. Graduate students will have the opportunity to use high level practical skills connected to the aerospace engineering. Choosing the master of Aerospace Engineering at Ecole centrale de Lyon means then:

  • Having access to top national laboratories and research structures at Ecole centrale de Lyon. Among them are the Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics Laboratory (LMFA), the Tribology and System Dynamics (LTDS). Both are well known French institutions with a very high industrial impact and link.
  • A small group teaching environment which is the signature of Ecole centrale de Lyon with very high interaction potentials.
  • Lectures will be given by senior experts and famous scientists’ worldwide recognized for their expertise in fluid mechanics, acoustics, solids mechanics, structural materials, control, among others.
  • A large part of the curriculum will be of practical character through a learning by doing way of thinking. Access to up to date and large facilities will be guaranteed.
  • 20% of classes will be delivered by experts from the industry. The Ecole centrale de Lyon strong and long-standing links to important companies and research centers in the aerospace sector will be considered.
  • Exchange mobility opportunities and dual degree program with international institutions (Germany, Canada,…) will be considered.


Accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research to confer the Master Degree.
