Master in Aeronautical Engineering
The Master in Aeronautical Engineering (MAE) is the official program of UC3M providing, at a time, full professional accreditation as Aeronautical Engineer in Spain and an internationally-focused high-level education enabling individuals to develop their professional career in all sectors of the aeronautical and space industries, agencies, and research centres.
In order to achieve these two goals, the MAE syllabus combines a core, covering all fields of Aerospace Technology, with focus on high-potential areas such as Integral Aircraft and Satellite Design, Aeronautical and Space Propulsion, Aerospace Navigation and Control, Experimental Techniques and Advanced Computational Methods.
The Master consists of 90 ECTS, including a Thesis, distributed in 3 semesters. Optional extensions of up to 30 ECTS will be available for individuals wishing a deeper specialization or enrolling in a PhD program.
The MAE is most adequate for individuals with a BSc-level background in aerospace engineering and, in particular, its syllabus has been built upon the knowledge and experience acquired in the BSc in Aerospace Engineering (BAE) at UC3M. As the BAE, the MAE is imparted totally in English and non-Spanish students and faculty are most welcome. All together, a multinational environment is expected to be created, proper not only of the aerospace industry, but of most innovative fields, professions, and universities.
A class limited to 40 students and a faculty team pertaining to a unique UC3M department assures a close monitoring of students and excellent coordination among courses. Furthermore, full-time, research-experienced faculty and industry-experienced part-time teachers will work together for the student to command the research and innovation skills, appropriate to master level studies.
Full-time enrollment in the Master requires about 40 hours of commitment per week during the academic period. This includes lecture and laboratory attendance, personal study, and preparation of assignments and exams. Furthermore, continuous evaluation, based on assignments and quizzes during the course period, amounts to no less than 40% of the final grade in the ordinary call. Therefore, those people willing to coordinate a professional internship with the Master study are strongly recommended either to enroll part-time or, preferably, postpone the internship to the second Master year, when there are only 18 ECTS of compulsory courses.
