17. Learning outcomes
A. Knowledge
  • The student knows the aircraft design process. 
  • The student understands the procedure of conceptual level aircraft design, the relevant fields of knowledge and tools. 
  • The student knows the practical application of optimisation methods.
B. Skills
  • The student is able to independently complete a conceptual level aircraft design taking into account the relevant requirements and constraints. 
  • The student is able to link multidisciplinary processes and use optimization tools.
C. Attitudes
  • The student aims to complete his/her specified simulation tasks at the highest level, under the shortest time, by providing his/her knowledge and capacity at the best to obtain knowledge for deep and independent professional work.
  • The student cooperates with professors and mates during the studies.
  • The student continuously increases his/her knowledge independently by having information from the external literature to complete his/her studies given by the lectures.
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  • The student takes responsibility for guiding mates by the quality of his/her work and by keeping ethic norms.
  • The student takes responsibility for applying the knowledge in line with the studied conditions, limitations and constraints.
  • The student can friendly accept the well-established constructive criticism and can utilize that in future.
  • The student can accept the form of the cooperation; he/she can work alone or in a team member depends on the actual situation.
18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
Design task: Conceptual level design of an aircraft performed independently with weekly regular consulting support. The deadline of completing this document and delivering to the lecturer is the last week of the semester. The students will get grade to the analysis task. The requirement for the signature is the delivered and accepted analysis task. The final grade of the subject is the mathematical average of the grade given for the exam and for the analysis tasks.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
If design task is not delivered in time, it is also possible to deliver the documentation in the supplementary week besides paying administration fee.
