Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
The module builds on the concepts introduced in Mechanics of Fluids I to study inviscid, incompressible flow over aircraft wings. The concepts of stream function, velocity potential, vorticity and circulation are developed and exact solutions of flow over some simple two-dimensional bodies are discussed. From this basis, methods are developed for calculating forces and moments on thin wing sections and finite-span wings in low-speed flow.
Assessment: 70.0% Examination, 30.0% Coursework
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
