Aeronautics&Astronautics Science and Technology
|Duration of Study
Overview of the Program
Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering concerned with the design, construction, operation and those of related to flight vehicles. It consists of two major branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering, respectively dealing with flight vehicles that operate inside and outside the Earth's atmosphere. The full-time graduate student program of Aerospace Engineering will provide our students with opportunities for further development in aerospace technical areas, aiming at cultivating the high-level professionals with solid theoretical and practical background in aerospace engineering. This program involves both fundamental courses and research project. Coursework will focus on aerospace fundamentals, mainly including guidance and control, fluid mechanics, and propulsion. The project will investigate challenging and fundamental problems in aerospace science and technology under the guidance of a supervisor.
Length of Schooling
The basic length of schooling for master students is 2 years. In principle, students should complete the courses in the first academic year. Thesis work time should not be less than one year. The maximum length of study for master students is extended by 0.5 years on the basis of 2 years. The basic length of schooling for Ph.D. students is 4 years. In principle, students should complete the courses in the first academic year. Thesis work time should not be less than three years. The maximum length of study for Ph.D. students is extended by 2 years on the basis of 4 years.
The target is to train high-level innovative talents who have a good knowledge of international common sense, with the ability of spreading Chinese and foreign cultures occupied, so that to bring international graduate students into full play as a cultural bridge.
