Program Description

Master of Science Aerospace Engineering


TU Delft offers a Master of Science Aerospace Engineering degree. Currently with a student corpus of over 1600, TU Delft's faculty of Aerospace Engineering is one of Europe's largest educational institutes specializing in aerospace and earth observation technology. A long history of technical excellence, innovation and teaching performance across a broad spectrum of space and aerospace disciplines enables graduates to take on the challenge of our future and provide technically imaginative and commercially viable solutions for this dynamic sector.

The Master's programme in Aerospace Engineering is a combination of taught modules, assignments and a thesis project. It is taught in English and consists of three parts: the first, which lasts about one year, consists of lectures and laboratory work in the specialisation of choice. The second part consists of a three-month work placement in the Netherlands or abroad, where the subject studied need not fall within the chosen specialisation. The last part of the programme is the final research project with the faculty or a company. The student describes their research method or methods and results and gives an oral presentation of the work.

Open Course Ware

Delft University of Technology has joined the OpenCourseWare Consortium in offering the world free access to certain course content online. TU Delft OpenCourseWare (OCW) seeks to capitalize on the potential of the internet to eliminate borders and geographic distance as obstacles to the instantaneous exchange of knowledge and new ideas. Unlike distance learning programs that charge tuition, provide formal instruction and limit participation, OpenCourseWare offers all course materials free to everyone with online access. Educators from around the world may upgrade their classes; students may enhance their coursework or pursue self study; the general public may glimpse the depth and breadth of what leading universities are offering and benefit from reading lists and lectures.

OCW does not require any registration and is not a degree-granting or certificate-granting activity. It is instead an effort to share knowledge and make the best educational use of the Internet's potential. The project has already been embraced by students and educators around the globe, many of whom are from areas where educational resources are scarce or difficult to access.

While TU Delft OCW faculty pride themselves on providing the most comprehensive course content possible, in some cases the full complement of OCW course materials may not appear online due to copyright and other intellectual property issues.

The Aerospace Engineering Open Course Ware is:

  • Statics
  • Vibrations
  • Dynamics and Stability
