Course content

Aerospace engineering has come a long way since the Wright brothers first succeeded in powered flight in 1903. The subject has evolved and diversified, ranging in topics from aerodynamics to flight control, from space engineering to simulation and design. Engineers need to have the ability to operate and develop advanced devices that are based on complex theoretical and computational models. Our MSc has developed alongside these developments in the field. 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.

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 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.

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.
