This option seeks to instil in students the knowledge and expertise needed in the design of an aircraft.
Aeronautics is a sector that encapsulates a large variety of subject matters. Under this option, students demarcate their own path among the following fields: aerodynamics, acoustics, automation, materials and structural mechanics.
This specialisation option revolves around project-based work. Engineering students are expected to eventually present academic knowledge that incorporates elements specific to the sector and from other fields. Based on the simplified design of a business jet (common project), different projects begin to focus on a component (turbojet, aerofoils, fuselage, etc.) or on an issue (acoustics, materials, controls, etc.) to create an aircraft that is more energy efficient, has lower emissions or is quieter.
