Exam procedures

The exam consists in the preparation of a Homework (desig project) and an oral interview (even remotely carried out).

A design project related to aircraft engines or systems will be conducted. Homework assignments will be due at least one month before the examination. The deliverables are a written report (in digital format, with any files used for calculations and the relevant bibliography) and the discussion of the work. You must acknowledge all references (both literature and people) used; all the deliverables will be sent by email to the instructor at least 10 days before the oral examination.

The oral examination consists of the discussion of the work of the year and a series of questions on the matters stated in the course program for the evaluation of acquired knowledge on the principles of operation of engines and aircraft systems, their performance and the principles of design and in general on the technologies of these systems.
