The Dept of Mechanical Engineering developed high-level expertise into propulsion technologies and
their integration onto aircraft. The Dept has a strong multidisciplinary history where external
aerodynamics, internal aerodynamics, combustion, mixing, particle transport, optimization and even
aeroacoustics meets. Various research projects have been conducted such as development of micro-
UAVs, multidisciplinary high-speed propeller design, propeller-wing interaction, rotor-airframe
interaction for helicopters, helicopters dynamics, hydrogen and jet fuel combustion, particle tracking
and environment control.
The Dept partnered with different European universities on various research projects.
