Course content

The aim of this programme is to allow students with a strong engineering background to gain advanced, yet broad knowledge in aerospace engineering, while encouraging specialisation through a research project and flexibility in the course programme.

On this course you'll be at the forefront of innovation in aerodynaics. This programme will give you advanced skills in computational modelling, numerical techniques and an in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to current aerospace problems. You can then choose to specialise in one of several highl-sophisticated fields, such as space engineering, flight control and simulation, aeroelasticity, computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, combustion, computational mechanics and vehicular crashworthiness.

You will learn the research and experimental skills necessary to work in the aerospace engineering industry, whether as a researcher or as an engineer for a major aerospace company. You will also collaborate with researchers working on alternative fuels sources, so it is relevant and timely futureproofing your career.

This programme will:

  • Prepare you to develop new computational and technological products for the aerospace industries.
  • Allow you to join research groups working at the cutting edge of aerospace engineering, and computational modelling.
  • Give you the chance to specialise in your own area of interest.
  • Enable you to work with state-of-art facilities.
