This Ph.D. program responds to the need for specific training and research in the field of Aerospace Engineering. The main objective of the program is to capacitate students with a series of technical and scientific competences in the field of aerospace science and technologies. Graduate doctors of the program will be qualified to find innovative and disruptive solutions to high-impact and high-interest problems in the field of aerospace engineering through a combination of experimental, computational, and technological methodologies pertaining to  aerospace science and engineering with a marked multidisciplinary, intersectoral and international character.

The program is structured in two large areas:

  • Aeronautics
  • Space

Career opportunities for graduates are aligned to three areas: a scientific career in universities or national and international research centers; a professional career in the Aerospace R&D sector; and the creation of technology-based companies through patents and/or registered software as direct outcomes of the research.
