Aerodynamics 2

This course introduces principles of stability and control of aircraft, high speed aerodynamics, and methods for analysing aerodynamic properties of high speed aircraft.

Course code

Qualifications are made up of courses. Some universities call these papers. Each course is numbered using six digits.

190356

Level

The fourth number of the course code shows the level of the course. For example, in course 219206, the fourth number is a 2, so it is a 200-level course (usually studied in the second year of full-time study).

300-level
