Founded in 1817, the Université de Liège offers a complete range of
university courses at undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels. It is 
into eleven faculties and schools: Philosophy and Letters; Law and School of
Criminology; Sciences; Medicine; Engineering; Veterinary Medicine; Psychology
and Educational Sciences; HEC Management School-ULg; Institute for Human and
Social Sciences; Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and Architecture.
Within the School of Engineering, the Department of Aerospace &
Mechanical engineering offers several programs to undergraduate and graduate
students. The main priorities, in terms of education and research, are in the 
of aeronautics, aerospace engineering, energy technology, mechanical 
and biomechanics. The focus is therefore on solid mechanics, materials 
fluid dynamics and applied thermodynamics. The department has also a long
standing tradition in computational mechanics (with spin-off like Samtech, 
Engineering,,…) and maintains active collaborations with both international
research centers and industrial partners.
