Course content

The MSc in Thermal Power aims to provide both fundamental and applied knowledge applicable to the understanding of the design and operation of different types of gas turbines for all applications. The course is suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an established international industry. With its very high power-to-weight and power-to-space ratios, the gas turbine engine dominates the world of aircraft propulsion. Continuous technological evolution has resulted in power plants with excellent reliability, fuel economy, low noise and low pollution levels. For similar reasons, gas turbine engines are finding increasing application in the power, oil, gas and process sectors. The world’s gas turbine industry is currently worth approximately £30 billion a year. Decision making skills based on detailed technical knowledge are therefore crucial in an industry with such a high cost base.
