Aviation engineering is a science that literally and figuratively takes us to the sky. True, you have already learned this – although your first paper plane was probably not as good as the prototypes you created later – it is a start.
In your studies, you will learn how the principles of aerodynamics work, what materials aircraft are made of, and how those materials behave during flight. During your studies, you will not only understand how to design, manufacture and maintain aircraft but also learn how to solve creative engineering and aviation challenges.
Focused on professional experience at aviation companies, the KTU Bachelor’s in Aviation Engineering leads through gradual learning about processes underlying the principles of aerial vehicle design, of building and maintenance of aircraft as well as dealing with many other aspects related to engineering in aviation.
