Aircrafts:There's no flying without wings

General description

Are you interested in learning how to design an aircraft?

This summer you get the chance to learn all about it from top professors at Transylvania University of Brasov.

The course provides an introduction to the aerodynamic analysis and 3D modelling of aircraft wings. The course covers concepts in basic aerofoil analysis, configuration of aircraft components, elements of aerodynamics, aircraft design, lift and drag representations, aerodynamic analysis – aircraft performance, aircraft wings basics and Solid Works basics.

What else?

This amazing course takes place in Brasov, also known as "probably the BEST city in Romania" for its incredible sights, rich history and friendly and welcoming locals. Situated in the famous Transylvania, the land of Dracula, surrounded by mountains, it surely is the BEST place to mix up learning about an interesting topic, with thousands of opportunities to have fun, discover amazing places, new friendships at every step.

I bet we've caught your attention, so start making plans for this summer, apply to this awesome event, and let us help you create unforgettable memories in what will probably be the BEST summer of your life. So what are you waiting for?

Your summer is going to be legen...wait for it...dary!
