Why study Degree in Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering?

Top Facilities

Universidad Europea has its own Wind Tunnel, in which students are able to carry out research with the most innovative companies in the field. By carrying out practical tests using the Wind Tunnel, measuring wind speed and wind force, and to visualising air flow lines, researchers are able to better understand the effect of the wind on objects

These objects include models of aeroplane or aeoplane parts, cars, buildings, bridges, and any object exposed to the force of the wind; you can also test the efficiency of wind turbines, which can be produced in our FabLab, a space dedicated to 3D printing. We would like to inform you of the facilities’ technical specifications and invite you to visit and see for yourself as well as test the Wind Tunnel's two speeds, a high speed of 40 m/s and a lower speed of 10 m/s with square sections of 90 cm by 180 cm respectively. Dynamometers for measuring force, There are Multi-Pitot Tube Scanivalve pressure scanners and temperature measurement tools, hot wire Anemometers, smoke equipment for streamline visualisation and computers managing the 36 Kw wind tunnel motor. Other equipment for data acquisition from dynamometers include photo and video cameras to record the test results.

The Wind Tunnel is also used by the air and motor clubs to test their own designs.

With these practices, researchers can better understand the behaviour of a body subjected to the wind and its design can be improved in order to optimise its function in real life to withstand the forces to which it is subjected.

Universidad Europea offers you a range of laboratories and simulation rooms that are equipped with the most advanced and innovative technologies so that you can fully benefit from our innovative academic model

Internships

External internship regulations.

Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and to register the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.

You do internships in companies such as the European Space Academy Center..., and participate in research projects and Workshops. This way you are assured a future in one of the three professions with the lowest unemployment in Spain.
