Course summary

Our Aerospace Engineering MSc is designed to expand your knowledge and expertise in aerospace and aeronautical engineering. Accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) for our 2021-22 intakes, this course includes subjects such as advanced computer aided engineering for aerodynamics and structures simulation, experimental methods to analyse structures and materials, and emerging aircraft technologies like unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones. The aviation and aerospace industry are committed to a sustainable future and our course covers the appropriate techniques, methods and subjects within this ever-changing industrial environment in more detail. With an emphasis on applied technical work, particular prominence is given to the developments in aircraft autonomy, the design and analysis of aircraft structures, computational fluid dynamics, advanced materials and processes, flight simulation and experimental methods. This master's programme provides you with the additional option to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us. The 'work placement', which if secured, is designed to further develop your skills, knowledge and professional experience with the aim of maximising your employability prospects.
