About Aeronautical Engineering at Linköping University

The aircraft industry faces major challenges in the transition towards sustainable transportation. After graduating from this programme you will be qualified to work independently and take on a leading role in the development of tomorrow’s aircraft. You will be introduced to the entire design process, from conceptual design to the final prototype. Problem-based learning, with frequent use of inter-course discipline examples, is a central part of our teaching. Several courses follow the CDIO (Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate) philosophy. The latter part of the programme involves a project in which these disciplines come together as you and your fellow students will design, build and fly an aircraft, or a subscale version.

Industry affiliations

Linköping is one of few places in the world where aircraft are designed and manufactured. There are several aeronautical and military aviation businesses in the city, such as Saab, the producer of the Gripen aircraft. Our students benefit from our location through close research collaboration between the University, the aerospace industry, and our industry-affiliated teachers.

Contemporary tools

The first year of the programme deals with the fundamentals of aeronautics, such as aircraft design, aerodynamics, engineering system design, product modelling, and aircraft systems and installation. Throughout the programme, progression is important and a mix of elective and mandatory courses prepares you for the thesis in the final semester. The use of contemporary engineering design tools is extensive and necessary in a multidisciplinary field such as aeronautical engineering.
