2. General presentation of the study programme

Social/economic context

 

Since the dawn of aviation, Lombardy has played a prominent role within the related Italian industry and research community, as witnessed by the long standing local presence of several well known aerospace companies: SIAI Marchetti, Caproni, Aermacchi, Costruzioni Aeronautiche G. Agusta. All those industries have contributed significantly both to the evolution of Aeronautics and to expansion of the regional and national economy during the 20th century and, hopefully, beyond.

Nowadays the domestic panorama is largely dominated by Leonardo SpA, a big national holding which integrates activities of former independent aerospace industries such as AgustaWestland (one of the world leaders in the vertical takeoff aircraft industry), Alenia Aermacchi (prominent player within the military trainers sector) and Selex-Galileo (active in the space industry). Other smaller and lively industries, especially in the equipment area, can provide advanced services and technologies.

The contribution of the entire aerospace sector to the Italian  economy is quite significant, especially in view of its high technology content.

 

Development of the educational offer

 

The significant presence of aeronautical industry in Lombardy has given impulse and force to the diffusion of an aeronautical mentality and culture which have created the natural humus for the creation of a School of Aeronautical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano. Following a first course in aviation in 1909 and a minor yet qualified presence of aeronautical courses until the second world war, the first graduates of the aeronautical section of the mechanical engineering programme appeared in 1952 and shortly after the Programme in Aeronautical Engineering was officially born to then become Aerospace Engineering. This Programme now represents a consolidated reality since many years and is well-known throughout Italy and Europe.

In recent years, evolution of air transport and the simultaneous presence in the region of numerous international airports with related industries have led to new courses, alongside disciplines typical of engineers operating in a technical/production environment, aimed at preparing engineers to be employed in airlines, airport management authorities and companies involved in air transport and navigation services.

The experience gained by professors in various research areas, from those strictly related to aerospace to those in basic engineering disciplines, has a positive and continuous impact on teaching. Cooperation with industry and research bodies, both national and international, takes advantage of the ability to carry out basic and applied research, supporting education on three levels, in terms of content and teaching methods.

The aerospace offer at the Politecnico di Milano is therefore the evolution of a historic path; aerospace training at the Politecnico di Milano today is organised in three cycles: Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering, Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering and in Space Engineering as well as Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering.

 

The programme mission

 

The programme mission is to prepare engineers capable of successfully addressing a multi- and inter-disciplinary context in dynamic and highly international operating environments, combining solid scientific and engineering foundations with specific aerospace engineering concepts which, according to the education level, facilitate the engineer in analysing, understanding and managing problems typical of the sector as well as of related scientific and technological areas.


3. Learning objectives

The aerospace sector requires highly professional engineers capable of working successfully in extremely interdisciplinary areas with a high level of technology, elevated efficiency and safety requisites and in a continually evolving and markedly international context: The articulation of aeronautical transport and the complexity of individual components requires coordination, integration and balancing of skills and capabilities of a high number of subjects to achieve a successful project be it aircraft (aerodynamics, structures, flight mechanics, controls, systems, propulsion, etc. ) or a profitable operation of the same (airport logistics, aircraft fleet maintenance and management, etc.).

The graduate in Aerospace Engineering acquires the engineering mentality of industrial engineers, using the aerospace context and applications as a study and educational environment. The mission and goal of the Master of Science in Aeronautical or Space Engineering is that of providing specific skills in the aeronautical and space sectors, based on a solid background in mathematics, physics, chemistry, solid and fluid mechanics, dynamics and control. 

The knowledge gained in the various courses is taught in such a way as to not only ensure its acquisition but also to develop interdisciplinary skills and the aptitude to face new and complex problems in a scientifically rigorous manner. In particular, all levels of the Programme aim at maintaining and strengthening ability to translate knowledge into practice in the employment world, pursuing the following learning results.

 

Knowledge and understanding. The Bachelor of Science programme in Aerospace Engineering is geared to provide all students with the knowledge and understanding of mathematical and physical principles underlying the field of industrial engineering, sound knowledge in engineering, as well as understanding and modeling of certain typical problems encountered in aerospace engineering. Such elements are considered to be essential to be able to satisfy the learning objectives of a subsequent Master of Science as well as entering employment after the three year cycle, ensuring acquisition of those tools which, with the support of advanced texts, facilitate study of new issues, continuous update of professional skills and alignment with operating conditions met along the way.

 

Applying knowledge and understanding. Graduates must be able to analyse and solve engineering problems suitable for their level of knowledge, autonomously elaborating their own skills, working in cooperation with engineers and non-engineers, using consolidated methodologies, from numerical modelling to experimentation, whilst recognising limitations and potential.

 

Making judgements. Graduates must acquire the skills needed to conduct complex studies on technical issues at their level of knowledge, using various and appropriate tools, from bibliographic research to consulting regulations and carrying out numerical and/or experimental investigations. These skills must lead to being able to formulate judgements whilst always being aware of the complexity of typical aerospace engineering problems and of the need for any in-depth analysis requiring superior skills.

 

Communication skills. The Bachelor of Science graduate in Aerospace Engineering must acquire the necessary foundation to communicate in an effective manner in a national and international context, both orally and in writing, being able to draft reports and make oral presentations using state-of-the-art tools.

 

Learning skills. The educational project, based on an appropriate balance in terms of fundamental scientific and engineering disciplines, as well as those characterising the aerospace sector, and on the stimulus of problem analysis and critical evaluation skills, will put the graduate in a position to manage continuous and indispensable learning with a high degree of autonomy, in order to follow scientific-technical evolution in the aerospace field.

 

The above objectives are pursued via lectures and specific exercise and laboratory teaching activities, carried out individually or in groups, within the individual or coordinated courses, also using verification procedures which foresee direct professor/student interaction aimed at stimulating and developing autonomy in managing issues faced.

It is noted that a "Suggested" prerequisite is a no effect requirement with the only goal of addressing the student through the correct courses sequence; there is no effect on exam or on course selection.


Supplementary activities

Students might graduate with more than the 180 credits required by the system. Supplementary educational proposals that will be acknowledged and certified in students’ personal curricula are:

-        additional courses

-        company internships

-        design laboratories

 

Additional courses

The training offer in the Aerospace Engineering manifesto reflects choices made with regard to compulsory subjects; with regard to the options left to the student, the limitation of 12 credits and 2 courses makes it impossible to acquire additional specific skills without incorporating additional courses. To complete one's training, other courses can therefore be selected, also from among those offered by the University outside the aerospace engineering manifesto. Additional courses cannot replace other courses of the study plan. Any Bachelor of Science additional courses cannot in any way be used towards a subsequent Master of Science.

 

Company internships

An experience in a working environment can play a significant role in the training of an engineer. The current proposal does not foresee a compulsory period of time spent in a company. However, students can insert an internship as a supplementary activity in their study programme. Time spent in a company will be managed by a specific structure so as to guarantee:

-        quality of the activity carried out

-        respect of commitments in terms of time required

-        adequacy of assistance and tutoring in the company

-        correspondence between educational needs of students and work carried out in the company.
