Taught Postgraduate Programs

Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering

Program Objectives

Aeronautical engineering is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that encompasses aspects of mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering in the development of large and complicated engineering projects. It facilitates  aviation practitioners to face major industrial challenges  and strives  for improvements  capabilities and skills in developing and managing effectively and efficiently their respective domains.

In order to respond to the industrial challenges, the MSc program in Aeronautical Engineering (AE) has been  developed. It is jointly offered by the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at  HKUST, in partnership with the Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC), which is currently the largest aeronautical university in Europe and the only aviation-oriented university in France offering a wide and complete panel of aeronautics-oriented degree bearing programs and continuing & professional education programs, serving the aeronautical world, and particularly the air transport sector. 

This program aims to equip those who want to enter the aeronautical engineering profession or to enhance the knowledge of those who have already been working in the aeronautical field. The program complements the existing undergraduate and postgraduate curricula in mechanical and aerospace engineering, and allows students to gain  exposure to the various core aspects of aeronautical engineering and how these are used in real world applications.
