Why does a plane fly?

Airplanes are highly complex systems that are used by people to travel or transport loads. In several individual contributions, various speakers from the Faculty of LRT will present their exciting fields of expertise in the field of aerospace engineering, with special emphasis on clarity and understanding. The students get an impression of the aspects that have to be considered when developing airplanes or spacecrafts.

Written papers on various topics are planned as examination papers, which can be completed in group work (2-3 persons per group). The topics will be announced in the 1st course.
