Aerospace teaching has a very long tradition at the CTU. The first lectures in Aerospace were given already in 1929 and in 1976 the Institute of Aerospace was established at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering as the predecessor of the current Department of Aerospace Engineering. The Department prepares students and brings up new aerospace engineers for the aerospace industry, research and development of air traffic. The Department provides lectures in the “Aerospace technology“ master program at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and a number of specialized aerospace subjects in the aerospace fields at other faculties of the CTU in Prague. The Institute also provides further post gradual study for graduates and aerospace specialists in doctoral study programs of “Traffic machinery and appliances“ and “Operation and management of aerospace traffic“.
The Department carries out extended scientific, research and development activities oriented on many areas depending on concrete needs of the aerospace industry. The Department cooperates with a number of industrial and production companies and operators of aviation technology and it is involved in the solution making of many national and international projects. The Department of Aerospace Engineering also participates in the activities of the Centre for aviation and space research, which exists with the support of the Ministry of Education in the Czech Republic at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the CTU in Prague. The CTU and the Department of Aerospace Engineering participate in international cooperation of aviation universities, primarily as members of the Pegasus Group (The Partnership of European Group of Aeronautic and Space Universities), and as members of the New Caesar Canada / EU project and the EAI (European Aerospace Institute).
From 2013/14 academic year there is a new inter-faculty master study program:
"AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS".
