Simona Participants


Visit the groups which participate in SIMONA:


The SIMONA Research Simulator is used in several student projects. The projects are performed by MSc students in the final year of the curriculum and by PhD students. Most students are from the Aerospace Engineering programme.

Some students participate in research projects performed in co-operation with third parties. One example is the co-operative handling qualities research project of 2002-2003, which was performed together with the Boeing Company.
