This course is delivered by the School of Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing.
The Faculty's wide selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covers a diverse range of subject areas, from aerospace to geography; from maths and computing to biotechnology; and many more. Our collaborative set-up provides new opportunities for our students, and we design our courses with industry professionals to ensure you stay up to date with the latest developments.
The University has a long historical association with training aerospace engineers, dating back to the Sopwith Aviation company in 1912. Today we are the largest aerospace provider in higher education (HESA data 07/08).
Kingston is the only UK university approved by the European Aviation Safety Association EASA Pt 14, allowing us to deliver courses at our Roehampton Vale campus. Students benefit from the specialist facilities at Roehampton Vale – from a Boeing 737 fuselage to large scale wind tunnels – all with programmes supported with the latest software technology.
"I am course director for the Renewable Energy Engineering MSc programme at the School of Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering. Since the inception of this masters' course in 2006, I have been responsible for the development of the programme which involves all areas of renewable energy engineering.
My research interest evolved from my doctorate in environmental fatigue behaviour of bonded aluminium alloy structures. I was employed as a fatigue engineer for British Aerospace Airbus working within the structural integrity division and later employed in solar energy research projects.
The research and teaching specialism incorporates materials engineering, fatigue and fracture of metallic materials as well as solar power engineering and applications. This area of expertise has helped formulate the programme.
Due to my professional involvement, in June 2004 I was duly elected as a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
