Taster Session Aeronautical Engineering


Date: Wednesday 7 March 2018

Have you always wanted to know how an aircraft flies? Do you want to know what the best materials are to create an airplane wing? What is the best design in relation to its function? Are you curious about how to calculate all this? During the Taster Session of Aeronautical Engineering, you will get acquainted with a few subjects of the wonderful and innovative world of Aeronautical Engineering. You will follow two, according to students, relatively difficult classes and a workshop.
