New Course of the Week – Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering

This week’s course of the week features something that I and many people have dreamed about – flying. Now it’s not exactly the same as getting into a plane and experiencing the freedom of flight. But learning the math and physics of how planes work gets you one step closer to your pilot’s license. This course covers the history of flight from the hot air balloon era, to the earliest flights to the latest heavy passenger jets. Should be fun and interesting.

The course is Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering by DelftX on the edX platform.

Discover the fascinating world of aviation by investigating aeronautics, with a closer look at aerodynamics and flight mechanics.

This course provides an overview of and introduction to the fundamentals of aeronautics, using the history of aviation as a story line. The course uses examples from the very beginning of aviation (the Montgolfier brothers’ balloon flight in 1783 and the Wright brothers’ heavier-than-air flight in 1903) and continues all the way through to the current Airbus A380 and future aircraft. ¬†This trajectory will start with a general introduction to aeronautics, to be followed by a closer look at aerodynamics and flight performance.

Starting in March.
