Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. A propulsion system is a machine that produces thrust to push an object forward.

On airplanes, thrust is usually generated through some application of Newton's third law of action and reaction. A gas, or working fluid, is accelerated by the engine, and the reaction to this acceleration produces a force on the engine.


Propulsion engineers master the mechanisms behind flight and propulsion in the atmosphere and in space. Specialize in Aerodynamics and Propulsion Systems as well as in Aerospace Structures and Materials, Through labs, lectures, and projects, they’ll also :

  • apply mechanical, electrical, computer, and industrial engineering to the conception, design, implementation, and operation of aerospace systems and processes;

  • solve problems using the techniques of mathematics, physics, modeling, and simulation;

  • gain practical insights into modern industrial practice.

This course brings together, the scientific and technical bases necessary for the integration of graduates in the industries of the aeronautics and space sector both in Algeria and abroad.
