Faculty Aerospace Engineering

The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology is one of the world’s most highly ranked (and most comprehensive) research, education and innovation communities devoted entirely to aerospace engineering. More than 200 science staff, around 250 PhD candidates and over 2,700 BSc and MSc students apply aerospace engineering disciplines to address the global societal challenges that threaten us today, climate change without doubt being the most important. Our focal subjects: sustainable aerospace, big data and artificial intelligence, bio-inspired engineering and smart instruments and systems. Working at the faculty means working together. With partners in other faculties, knowledge institutes, governments and industry, both aerospace and non-aerospace. Working in field labs and innovation hubs on our university campus and beyond.

The Aerospace Materials and Structures (ASM) department is dedicated to research on and development of structures and materials. Multiple groups cover the range from fundamental material science to full-scale structural component testing. This position is embedded into one of the sections of the ASM department, namely Aerospace Structures and Computational Mechanics (ASCM).

The ASCM section focuses on development of analytical, numerical and design methodologies for advanced aerospace structures. These methods range from multiscale structures to large-scale aircraft components. Also experimental testing on the bench and in the wind tunnel is an area of expertise of this section.
