Name: Mehmet Yiğit Balta
Special interests: Fluid Mechanics, FEM, CFD, Propulsion
My experience at the FHWN: During the MSc. education at the FHWN, for each specific engineering course, we had experts coming from the aerospace industry, hence we had the chance to learn not only the theory but also the industrial applications, tools, etc., which allows an up-to-date engineering education at the FHWN.
Together with FOTEC GmbH which is the research cooperation of FHWN, the university conducts space related research projects and developments those also involve students of aerospace engineering. Having this close relation with FOTEC GmbH also enabled me to be a part of an ESA project which is totally my field of interest! Being a part of such projects which directly relates to our program, prepares students of FHWN for industrial careers in addition to academic careers.
Students of FHWN are also supported by FOTEC GmbH to conduct their thesis on space related topics. I know that without supervision of FOTEC GmbH, it would be nearly impossible to conduct my thesis by learning and using software in which ESA provides information confidentially.
As long as a student had an idea or needed to use a facility of FHWN, academicals of the FHWN fully supported us. For me, this support was to have the full access to use a very fast computer to compute all my numerical simulations.
I believe that the perspective we gained at the FHWN together with FOTEC GmbH will open up excellent opportunities for us in all over the world.
