Fascinated by the technique behind moving machines? Enter the world of Aeronautical Engineering.
Aeronautical engineering is about the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft. In recent years, aeronautical engineering has become one of the major overlapping branches of aerospace engineering. The four-year Aeronautical Engineering programme focusses on designing and constructing aircraft and aircraft components. You will learn about engineering in general and you will gain practical experience during your internship. If you are fascinated by the history and methodology behind moving machines, aeronautical engineering is the programme for you.
As fossil fuel reserves are depleting, the need for sustainable energy is greater than ever. Seven students from the Aeronautical Engineering programme decided to tackle this problem. They developed a vertical wind turbine to generate energy for offices and apartment buildings.
