Course content

The MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design (AVD) aims to build knowledge on the design of flying vehicles such as aircraft, missiles, airships and spacecraft. This course provides a taught engineering programme with a focus on the technical, business and management aspects of aircraft design in the civil and military aerospace sectors.

One unique feature of the course is that we have four external examiners; two from industry who assess the group design project and two from academia who assess the individual research project. Students can take advantage of our impressive facilities at Cranfield, which include large aircraft flight simulator, a flying experience with our Bulldog aircraft, and the National Flying Laboratory Centre (NFLC) Jetstream aircraft in which onboard monitors give you first-hand experience of the theory from a pilot’s perspective.
