The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering is one of the eight faculties of Delft University of Technology and one of the largest north European faculties devoted entirely to aerospace engineering. The education and research activities are supported by excellent and extensive laboratory facilities including a modern laboratory for structure manufacturing and testing, a broad range of wind tunnels for low and high speeds and a high-fidelity flight simulator. Furthermore, the Aerospace Faculty partly owns a Cessna Citation business jet aircraft, which is operated as flying classroom for students and research test bed. Collaborations with numerous international and multinational industries ensure that the Faculty remains at the forefront of the latest developments in the aerospace industry. Today, the Aerospace Faculty has an international student body of approximately 2,700 undergraduates and graduates, 300 members of academic staff and well over100 PhD students.
The role of TU Delft in the PERSEUS project will be to lead WP5.
