Universidade Lusófona do Porto

Seminar I


The program of the unit is centered in the development, design, manufacturing, tests and operation of aircrafts, manned or not, launchers, spacecrafts and satellites.

Several space technological innovations are presented either for space or aeronautic systems. Several communication, manufacturing and maintenance equipment, navigation, guidenance and flight control systems are presented.

The main themes will allow the students to verify the state-of-the-art of aeronautics and space vehicles.

Provide to the students, knowledge and multi-disciplinary capacities and critical analysis of the state of the art relating to aerospace engineering sciences from technological, operational, and historical point of view.

Teaching methodologies and assessment

The structure of the classes will be divided in theoretical classes, using the expositive and interactive method or through the use of slides, and practical and laboratorial classes, in which the student are subjected to aerospace issues, solving them individually or in group.

The interaction between students with the Professor becomes very pertinent in this classes since it helps the students for a more participating methodology instead of the standard method.

The evaluation method is performed during six months, by continuous evaluation or by final work, according to the Regulation of evaluation of Knowledge of the ULP. The method includes: a written work (30%); presentation of the work (15%); and written test (55%).
