Professional profile

A successful Aeronautics Engineer has general skills obtained through the study of basic theoretical topics (mathamematics and physics), and specific space-related topics (aero-dynamics, propulsion, etc.). He/She works on production, innovation, development, and planning of complex systems. For this reason, this course gives great importance to theoretical and practical topics of basic engineering and simulation techniques. Additionally, there is impetus on integration process of aircraft systems, as it is one of the high-responsibility jobs which an Aerospace Engineer can take up.

Job opportunities

Typical employment opportunities for a successful graduate include aircraft industries, public and private institutions, airforce, etc. Engineers can also work in other industrial fields where their knowledge is in demand.
