Months of entry
The School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering has a strong and unique tradition in the UK in Aerospace Design, Helicopters, Heat Transfer, Aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Flow Diagnostics. This course builds on those strengths and exploits our links with BAe Systems, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, DSTL, USAF, North West Aerospace Alliance, North West Development Agency and SBAC.
This MSc aims to produce high quality graduates with specialist training in aerospace engineering who will be suitable for employment in the engineering industries and consultancies linked to that industry. Aerospace engineering graduates are highly valued and are currently in great demand and the Manchester programme specifically seeks to serve this growing industry requirement. The programme is suitable for engineering and science graduates, as well as engineering professionals working in technical and commercial management. The programme is also well designed to be used for conversion to Aerospace Engineering from some close enough specialities such as Mechanics, Mathematics and Physics.
