Abstract

The trend towards European academic homogenisation, budget cuts and other threats lead to shrinking the time for the aeronautical engineering programs. Some topics, knowledge and skills will have no place in future curricula. The paper advocates for keeping airplane design as a corner stone of the aeronautical engineering syllabi since it is the only topic that educates students in synthesis perspective, binds many independent disciplines and counterbalances18 years of well developed analytical mentality.
