Air Transport Engineering (ATE) is a master of Aerospace Engineering program taught in English, addressed to bachelor of Aerospace Engineering graduates but not only, interested in the dynamic field of Air Transport.
This course discusses the factors that affect aircraft performance, which include the aircraft weight, atmospheric conditions, runway environment, and the fundamental physical laws governing the forces acting on an aircraft. The performance or operational information contains the operating data
for the aircraft; that is, the data pertaining to takeoff, climb, range, endurance, descent, and landing.
The use of this data in flying operations is mandatory for safe and efficient operation. Considerable knowledge and familiarity of the aircraft can be gained through study of this material.
The students are engaged in scientific research with an individual supervisor. At the end of each semester, a research report is presented to a scientific board. The program ends with a dissertation thesis and exam.
Air Transport Engineering was established in 2013, with the objective to be adapted to the needs of current civil aviation and aligned to the International Civil Aviation Organization – Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (ICAO NGAP) strategy. The curricula were decided by AirNav Board, a think tank consisting of high profile graduates of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
The ATE program is multidisciplinary and its approach to complexity is holistic and systemic (understanding the aircraft as a system of systems and as a part of the air transport system).
