Aeronautical engineering graduates are highly valued and in great demand. The MSc Aeronautical Engineering is ideal for graduates seeking employment in the aeronautical sector and for practising aerospace engineers who want to extend and update their skills. Progression to management is key to the careers of postgraduate engineers, so as part of the aeronautical engineering programme you will develop relevant managerial skills, as well as an awareness of the wider issues that affect the aeronautical industry. The MSc Aeronautical Engineering course meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status with the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS). We have recently built an Aerospace Centre which includes a BAE Jetstream aircraft, laboratory equipment, a gas turbine engine, wind tunnel and a flight simulator, as well as state-of-the-art engineering analysis software.
Continually assessed coursework or a mixture of coursework and exams; the dissertation has 3 elements of assessment: A thesis, a poster presentation and a viva voce.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
