The TFM-ASA program combines studies and research based on aerodynamics, thermodynamics, compressible flows, turbulence, propulsion, combustion, turbomachinery, material science, to name a few. These themes are all directly connected with technical and fundamental studies as well as with aircraft, spacecraft, drone issues, etc. The program is jointly managed by three academic European partners (France, Germany and Belgium) together with the support and expertise of:
- Bordeaux / France: Industrial partners such as IRT St Exupery (Technological Research Institute), BAAS Society (Bordeaux Aquitaine Aéronautique et Spatial) and Aerospace Valley. Leading research laboratories, strongly involved in the aeronautic field such as I2M, LCTS, IMB (UBx).
- Louvain-la-Neuve / Belgium: Applied Research Center CENEARO. Research Laboratories: IMMC (UCL).
- Cottbus-Senftenberg / Germany: Closed collaborations with space agencies (ESA, DLR), ROLLS ROYCE, MTU Aero Engines. Research Laboratory: CFTM² at BTU
These industrial partners provide specialized classes and internships to the program, thus providing the students with an overview about the actual issues faced by companies today. The result is a top-quality, highly-renowned international Master degree that meets the 120 ECTS syllabus requirements and corresponds with current job market criteria.
Strengths of this Master program?
