Aerospace materials and structures
Research in this area includes materials modeling and characterization, analysis of composite structures and full-scale testing.
Computational methods and mathematical modelling
Research in this area includes computational structural mechanics, optimisation and control.
Structural Health Monitoring
Research in this area concerns application of damage detection techniques on different structures with several requirements.
Research in this area includes investigation on specific solutions for implementing adaptive structures.
Research in this area concerns the interactions among aerodynamics, structural mechanics, and dynamics, spanning the fields of fixed- and rotary-winged aircraft.
Aeronautical engineering degrees represent the branch of engineering that deals with the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft. The field also covers investigation into aerodynamic characteristics of aircraft, including behaviors and related factors such as airfoil, control surfaces, lift and drag. In recent years, aeronautical engineering has become one of two major and overlapping branches of aerospace engineering, with astronautical engineering being the second. If you’re fascinated by the history and methodology behind flying machines – from Leonardo Da Vinci’s early conceptual sketches and the Wright brothers’ famous flight of 1903 through to the sophistication and progress of modern jets – aeronautical engineering could be the degree for you.
Naples is the perfect place to be involved into this extraordinary and challenging matter.The aerospace school has an excellent track record nstarted by uncountable achievements, last of which awarded by the academic ranking of world universities (ARWU) in 2019. The Aerospace Engineering study course of University of Naples Federico II has been awarded the 1st and 2nd place among Italian and european universties, respectively, and 18th place in the world ranking thanks to the teaching and research achievements of all the staff. On the other hand, Naples is sorrounded by many aerospace companies where the theory get to practice daily. Coming study Aerospace Engineering here means to benefit from years of experience in teaching and engineering application.
