Course content

Our MSc Aerospace Engineering is a fully immersive conversion course for engineering graduates.

It draws on the considerable expertise of six departments in our engineering and science faculties, as well as the University's Management School. Because we have close links with some of the world's leading aerospace companies, you will learn about the latest developments in industry.

You'll study concepts of systems integration and flight control alongside traditional aeronautical subjects such as materials, structures, aerodynamics and propulsion for the design of high-speed flight and lightweight aircraft. By exploring these topics, you'll learn how to create more efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft and aerospace systems.

You can tailor the course to suit your interests and career aspirations by specialising in either aeromechanics or avionics. You'll graduate as a highly knowledgeable aerospace engineering specialist.
