Aerospace Engineering is one of the most exciting and challenging engineering disciplines. It deals with the design and development of new technologies in aviation, space, and defense systems. It involves designing and manufacturing advanced components and systems for commercial and military vehicles. It is a result of merging two branches:
In general, aerospace engineers are provided with specialized skills in several aspects: designing, manufacturing, testing, and maintenance of aviation, space, and defense systems.
The continued global expansion of the aviation and aerospace industries is driving strong demand for aerospace engineers. In the UAE, as well as the Middle East, the aerospace industry has continued to expand at a rate significantly above the global average. The geographic and economic positions of the UAE are two of the drivers spurring the growth of aircraft manufacturing, maintenance repair-overhaul (MRO) facilities, and space-related industries.
Our programs at the Khalifa University offer training at both levels: the theoretical such as aircraft systems and design, space mission analysis and satellite modeling, and the practical level that involved assembly, testing, and operations of these systems.
