  • Experience in University Clubs: 500 grams of the Universidad Europea will be launched into space. The Air Division Student Club is working on the UESat1 project: they design, manufacture and test in the workshops of the Universidad Europea , such as Fab Lab and the Wind Tunnel, different devices to develop a small PocketQube 2P satellite in collaboration with AMSAT EA. The satellite has two missions: to be a repeater of amateur radio signals with a Linear Transponder and to test an ion pulse engine in space from Applied Ion Systems. It will be launched in mid-2020 to LEO (low Earth orbit) and will be orbiting for about 4 years. You are in time to be part of this historical milestone. We challenge you to learn by doing and prepare to work in multidisciplinary teams.
  • Get ready for graduate school. The Degree in Aerospace Engineering in Aircraft trains for the regulated profession of Aeronautical Technical Engineer in the field of specific aircraft technology and gives access to the Master's Degree in Qualifying Aeronautical Engineering and will make you an Aeronautical Engineer.
