Aerospace Engineering 

Bachelor's and Master's degree

Bachelor’s Degree

The course includes a single curriculum organized in order to train an engineer with skills in both the space and aeronautics fields. The study program aims to prepare with solid foundations for the subsequent path of the master’s degree.

Master’s Degree

The Master’s Degree Course is the natural continuation of studies for students who have obtained the first cycle degree in Aerospace Engineering. The course is divided into two curricula: aeronautics and space. As can be seen from the title, each of the two curricula focuses on one of the two cores of aerospace engineering with solid skills in systems design, analysis and management.


Studies in Aerospace Engineering can count on the availability of numerous teaching and research laboratories, the mechanical calculation center and the industrial engineering library. The laboratories occupy a total area of over 4500 square meters and are equipped with state-of-the-art systems and instruments.


After my master’s degree in aerospace engineering, I had the opportunity to do an internship at the European Space Agency and, subsequently, I worked both in Italy and abroad in the so-called “new space” sector.

Competitive student projects are activities in which groups of students, usually coordinated by a professor, work on the design and construction of engineering artifacts or machinery devices, that they present to specific competitions against  students of other Italian and foreign universities.



The University of Padua makes available internship proposals for students and job offers for graduates from companies operating in the sector on the Moodle platform.
