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 creates major challenges that arouse for improvements of aviation staffs’ capabilities and skills in developing and managing effectively and efficiently their respective domains

In order to respond to these challenges, MSc program in Aeronautical Engineering (AE) is developed. It is jointly offered by the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of HKUST, in partnership with 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 graduate curricula in mechanical and aerospace engineering, allows student to get exposure to the various core aspects of aeronautical engineering and how they are used in real world.

Upon graduation, students shall receive a joint institutional Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering (AE) degree from ENAC and HKUST.
