Spirit of adventure, exploration and discovery, combined with the results of classic engineering at its highest: the creation of extraordinary machines and control systems of amazing complexity. These are the ingredients that give Aerospace Engineering studies a special charm. Certainly not all aerospace engineers end up designing a breakthrough aircraft or being part of the exciting descent of an interplanetary probe on a distant planet. But there is no doubt that this degree opens the doors to "frontier" engineering environments, where the bases of the most advanced new technologies are built. To name but a few, in aeronautical and space engineering you apply and refine the philosophies of multidisciplinary design, you are confronted with issues of safety and reliability, you study and experience the management of more complex systems. Politecnico di Torino, in particular, is offering you a training which is strongly inspired by international models: to get ready to face challenges in Europe and worldwide where many aerospace engineering graduates from Turin have found their employment.
The MSc degree program in Aerospace Engineering goes more into depth and develops the subjects introduced by the BSc program.
It is structured on a common basis of 8 modules of 8 credits (CFU) each, followed by 5 Orientations, of 26 credits each: Aerostructures, Propulsion Systems, Aeromechanics and Systems, Aero-gas-dynamics, Space. Thanks to agreements with many European partner universities, the degree study program is highly internationalized.
The number of graduates in Aerospace Engineering in Europe is well proportioned to the demand for engineers in major aerospace industry. If we consider the impressive size of the linked industry made up of suppliers and consultants, the demand actually doubles.
Not only: as an aerospace engineer you have many employment opportunities even in contiguous industrial sectors such as the automotive, mechanical, energy and even electronic-computer science sector, because the scientific knowledge and technical skills that are gained with this program are increasingly sought for in every technological domain.
