You will graduate from the Aeronautical Engineering bachelor's degree programme as a Bachelor of Science in the broad field of the aircraft and space industry. The focus of this four-year programme will be on designing and constructing aircraft and aircraft components. You will learn about engineering in general and you will gain practical experience during your work placements. The Aeronautical Engineering department of Inholland Delft works closely with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). You will be able to make full use of the facilities available at TU Delft, such as the wind tunnel. You will also have access to the university library. What is more, TU Delft has a huge collection of aircraft components as well as fully-assembled aircraft.
Specializations & Graduation
The graduation specialisations will allow you to tailor the final two years of your programme to your personal interests and ambitions. You can opt for differentiation minors not only in Delft, but also at other establishments belonging to Inholland University of Applied Sciences. You can also pursue certain study components abroad.
The two main specialisation tracks are:
- Design and Development
- Lightweight Structures
Important components of the Aeronautical Engineering programme are the three internships. The first one consists of gaining practical experience at a company. This might involve welding, turning and assembly work. In the third year, you will spend at least twenty weeks at a company in the Netherlands or abroad. You will acquire new experiences and will perform one or more assignments. The graduation project tends to be an assignment by a company that culminates in a report which will serve as your thesis.
The programme is taught in Delft.
With a Bachelor of Science you will be able to work anywhere in (aeronautical) engineering. With the knowledge and skills you will have acquired, you will also be able to work outside the aviation industry as, for example, an engineer in research and development agencies or automotive industry. Examples of jobs that will be within your reach as an Aeronautical Engineering graduate are:
• Flight engineering
• Structural engineering
• Lead engineering
• Stress engineering
