Centre for Mechanical and Aerospace Science and Technologies (C-MAST)

UniversityMember since 2011

The research unit “Centre for Mechanical Aerospace Science and Technologies” (C-MAST) was created in 1994 by a small group of six aerospace engineers. Now we became a Reasearch Center developing studies in Energy, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a wide spectrum of areas, from Astrodynamics to Technological Forecasting.

We are involved in high-level international collaboration, scientific networks, and prestigious professional societies, also aiming to intensify and promote investigation and collaboration with the industry in these domains in Portugal, to improve the quality of teaching/learning in the involved institutions, to qualify high-level specialists, and to develop outreach activities. With these goals in view, the activities of the Centre are multidisciplinary and combine scientific, technological, economic and social aspects.
