The Associate program in eVTOL Engineering (electric vertical takeoff and landing) is a program where students will be able to understand the different types of transport that are possible with eVTOL Engineering. eVTOL innovations are electric aircraft that take off, hover, and land vertically, that have large omnidirectional fans to help pilot the aircraft and move in any direction that it needs. A common eVTOL aircraft is a drone, but there are other types and designs. In this program, students will discover what it’s like to design an eVTOL, what are the capabilities for future passenger or cargo transit so that we can move in and around cities by using eVTOL technologies, a program that explores the efficiency, safety, cost, regulatory practices, flight time, range, payload capacity and other limitations that will need to be solved as we continue to make great progress for alternative forms of transport. The program of eVTOL Engineering (electric vertical takeoff and landing) at AIU, is a distance learning program that will be tailor-made and designed exclusively for you, by you, and with your counselor. The flexibility to meet your needs is rarely found in any other distance learning program. Our program does not require that each student studies the same subjects and uses the same books and study materials as other students. Instead, our online Bachelor Programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you achieve your professional and personal goals.
Important: You can find below an example of the topics or areas of study that you can develop and work on during your study program. This does not mean, in any way, that said example implies being a complete list that you are obliged to carry out at AIU, but that it is used by you as it is, an example or guide at your service. We remind you that AIU does not require its students to follow a standardized curriculum. Do you want to learn more about curriculum design at AIU? (Courses and Study Plans)

As an engineer in eVTOL, there are ample opportunities for employment with aerospace companies that are working on making eVTOL aircrafts for everyone. Typically, engineers in eVTOL work with mechanical and electrical engineers to develop efficient and high performing vehicles. There are opportunities to work in the private and public sector. Soon, these aircrafts will be used for deliveries of goods and services, so there will be a need for people to actually use the aircrafts and not just design them as it is a field in its early stages.
According to PR Newswire, the eVTOL transport market is expected to reach $200 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 18%, and $14.7 billion for eVTOL Taxis by 2041, due to the high demand of alternative modes of transportation for goods, services and people. With more and more people crowding cities, there is a demand to come up with efficient and effective methods of transportation as the United Nations is expecting 68% of the world population to be living in urban areas by 2050. This is very attractive when it comes to finding employment opportunities as a totally new market is opening up and will be breaking through in the next few years, especially due to investments that the private sector is raising and the motivation to break through in the industry.
