Aerospace Engineering Masters (MSc): Course features
What this course offers you
The Aerospace Engineering course has been designed to meet the requirements of the Engineering Council for UK-SPEC. It provides you with a strategic overview of engineering and management issues.
The course will develop your professional, analytical, research, business and management skills, as well as improving your technical skills and knowledge. For example, you will gain communication, teamwork, planning, decision-making, IT and problem-solving skills which enhance your prospects of gaining employment and progressing your career in the aerospace industry.
The programme is built on a comprehensive application of techniques such as advanced computer-based design, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Elements Analysis (FEA).
Each module combines a stimulating mix of lectures, practical laboratory work, group work, case studies and presentations.
The Aerospace Group Design Project gives you the chance to solve a real-world engineering problem.
You can choose to study either full time or part time to fit in with work commitments. September and January start dates give you extra flexibility.
There is a strong link between our academic staff research and teaching. Our teaching teams have been actively involved in the research of computational fluid dynamic, aerodynamics and advanced materials.
Postgraduates of this course have taken up posts in a variety of employment settings including Amsafe Armour, Solion Solar Energy, Easjet, Lufthansa, Flybe, Hawkerhind and Precision Press Parts Corp. Some postgraduates have continued their studies in PhD research projects.
