Civil academic education of Helicopter Engineering in Poland

    Wiesław Łucjanek Affiliation


Requirements of industry, research centres, and users necessitate the teaching of helicopter engineering at various levels and specialities, both in the civil and military sectors in Poland. Civil academic education of helicopter engineering has been offered for many years at the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering (FPAE) of Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) on undergraduate and graduate levels. For the past last years the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) of Lublin Technical University (LTU) has also conducted education in helicopter engineering, mostly focused on airframe design and manufacturing, since a helicopter factory is located nearby. In this paper, education at WUT and LTU is described, and examples of themes of selected student courses and diploma projects, as well as PhD theses, are presented.
