About the city:
Naples is home for the most important universities of South Italy and the world's oldest state university: our University, Federico II, which takes its name of Frederick II Hohenstaufen, King of Sicily and Head of the Roman Empire that founded it in 1224. He decided to create a Studium (School) inside his reign to permit his subordinates to study without going away.
The Faculty of Engineering takes origin from “Scuola di Applicazione per Ingegneri di Ponti e Strade” (Training school for Bridge and Road’s Engineers), founded in 1811. One of its numerous departments has a prominent importance in the aerospace field: DIAS (Department of of Aerospace Engineering). It was originally divided into two departments: DISIS (Department of Science and Space Engineering) and DPA (Department of Aeronautical Engineering). The DPA work begun in 1929, when it was founded by Gen. Prof. Umberto Nobile, famous designer, dirigible pilot and polar explorer. He was also the founder of the Institute for Aeronautical Constructions in 1926. This Institute became, in 1995, the Department of Science and Space Engineering (DISIS) "Luigi G. Napolitano”. The Department includes teaching and research activities for a large number of disciplines, with strong synergies with the three Aerospace research centers in Campania (CIRA, CORISTA, MARS).
AS Naples decided to take the name of “Umberto Nobile” to proudly remember this important figure.
Visit the Department of Aerospace Engineering
What we love to do is to spread the Aerospace Culture among both the students of the sector and just passionate people, and especially to give Aerospace students a glimpse of a possible future career: that's why our main activities include visits to the main industries of the sector and to every place our associates think could be interesting for our members.
