Months of entry
Aeronautical engineering graduates are highly valued and in great demand. This Masters course is ideal for graduates seeking employment in the aeronautical sector and for practising aerospace engineers who want to extend and update their skills.
Progression to management is key to the careers of postgraduate engineers, so as part of the course you will develop relevant managerial skills, as well as an awareness of the wider issues that affect the aeronautical industry, such as safety and the environment. The course meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status with the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
The University has recently built an Aerospace Centre on the Pontypridd Campus, which includes a BAE Jetstream aircraft, laboratory equipment, a gas turbine engine, wind tunnel and a flight simulator, as well as state-of-the-art engineering analysis software.
We have comprehensive links with industry through our Industrial Panel, which contains representatives from major companies, including BAMC, Storm, GE Aviation Systems, Nordam Europe, TES and BA Avionics.
