The von Karman Institute offers a wide variety of educational programs, going from short training internships and final year projects for undergraduate students over a full year of Research Master specialization, up to a complete PhD Research program:
The RESEARCH MASTER IN FLUID DYNAMICS (master-after-master): An accredited Master after Master specialization program of one academic year, with courses and master thesis project (60 credits). Teaching and supervision by the VKI faculty
The DOCTORAL PROGRAM: A multi-year program of basic research in fluid dynamics carried out in collaboration with a Belgian university or with the home university of the candidate.
The APPLIED RESEARCH ORIENTATION PROGRAM: graduates of the research master may be further instructed in the methodology of applied fluid dynamics and the practice of independant research.
The educational and research programs of the Institute are organised within the following areas of specialisation:
- Aeronautics and Aerospace,
- Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics,
- Turbomachinery and Propulsion.
The VKI operates a comprehensive range of experimental and computational facilities covering virtually all aspects of the above fields. Necessary support is provided by facility engineers, electronic and photographic laboratories, a computing centre, a technical library, a computer-aided drawing/design office and well-equipped workshops.
