The institute offers several educational courses in aeronautics aim at companies wishing to increase company knowledge-base, and private individuals who are interested in advanced vocational education.
Introduction to Aeronautics for Non-Engineers.
Short course aimed at non-engineering staff such as HR and purchasing, focussing on expanding the horizon and making company operations more transparent.
The course goals are to give the participants the ability to:
- Discuss and analyse current events and news in aerospace, and their impact on the company.
- Critically assess new methods and tools in aerospace, relating to engineering, medicine and aviation law with respect to their employee role.
- Individually present the history of aeronautics from a company perspective.
The contents of the course is modified to customer needs and requirements and usually spans between 2 to 10 hours. Lectures can either be on customer site or at another venue.
Fundamentals of Aeronautics and aircraft design for Engineers.
Vocational course for mechanical engineers who want to expand into aerospace engineering. After the course the student should be able to:
- Independently report on historical trends in aircraft design and relate these to today's design choices and infrastructure.
- Demonstrate knowledge of aircraft engineering definitions and how they are used in technical design work.
- Describe how the various aircraft engineering computational models relate to each other and to reality, and to demonstrate proficiency in their use.
- Analyse aircraft stability and assessing the adequacy of the necessary trade-offs.
- Based on the performance analysis to assess both the quality and reasonableness of an aircraft design, relate this to the historical data, and account for the chosen method of analysis strengths and weaknesses.
- Critically evaluate design choices and analyse them against the specification requirements.
The contents of the course is modified to customer needs and requirements and usually spans between 8 to 24 hours, but can be shortened. Lectures can either be on customer site or at another venue.
