Abstract

The School of Design Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia has begun to teach this course 2014-2015 the new Master in Aeronautical Engineering. In the first year the compulsory subject 'Orbital and Atmospheric Flight Mechanics. Guidance Laws' appears with 4.5 ECTS (Theory 2.25, Practice 1.25 and Problems with computer 1.00). Developing the curriculum of this course has been the first step in the work of the teachers involved, who have divided the competences of the subject in two blocks. On the one hand the competences of ¿Orbital and Atmospheric Flight Mechanics¿ and on the other those of ¿Guidance Laws¿. It has also sought to promote a type of learning based on problems connected with reality as well as allowing students to visualize the elements that they are studying. Each weekly session consists of an introduction of concepts in theoretical session, a problem-solving task to strengthen and expand knowledge and finally a visualization practice by performing 2D and 3D simulations by means of STK software. In this article we describe the process followed in developing the curriculum of the first block (MVOyA) showing also some examples
