Introducing your degree

This postgraduate masters course emphasises the fundamentals of aerodynamics as a subject by focusing on analysis, computation and measurement of turbulent flows associated with high performance race cars. It will suit graduates or similarly qualified individuals from engineering, scientific and mathematical backgrounds, with some experience of fluid dynamics who are aiming for advanced specialisation in aerodynamics.

Overview

Design is a central theme on this course. You will take part in individual and group practical work to detail your insight of race car design and learn to evaluate and apply experimental aerodynamic concepts. You will also learn advanced computational fluid dynamics and numerical procedures to counteract problems in the design process.

The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will have the option to further your understanding by selecting from a range of modules, from Systems Reliability to Automotive Propulsion.

The final four months will hone in on research. You will have access to our world-class facilities, including the RJ Mitchell wind tunnel as used by F1 teams, America's Cup yacht teams and Olympic athletes. As part of the learning process, you will engage in experimental and practical study and complete a critical research project.

This programme aims to prepare students with science backgrounds to develop unique expertise in the fundamentals of energy and the environment, their applications for the benefit of humankind, and the ability to stay abreast of the field of sustainable energy engineering.

The programme structure is designed to appeal to students with sciences or mathematics backgrounds, and is modular in format. The content of the programme includes a compulsory Engineering Methods module in the first semester, which aims to introduce and develop engineering techniques for students with varied backgrounds. Other than these modules students will be taking specialist energy engineering modules that are being developed for the MSc. This will bolster our current offering, but will also allow these students to become specialists in their field.

A 60 credit research project is to be undertaken using our research activities and our state of the art facilities. Several high performance computing clusters owned by the university support a full spectrum of computational research. Our well equipped laboratories include a wide range of IC engines, heat transfer facilities, wind tunnels, an anechoic chamber, a UK CueSim Flight Simulator and France-Price Induction Jet engine test bench, and energy materials synthesis and characterisation labs. support Systems, Aerodynamics and Propulsion research. Nanotechnology research is further supported by the facilities and expertise provided by Nanoforce, a company directly associated with the School.

* All new courses are required to undergo a two-stage internal review and approval process before being advertised to students. Courses that are marked "subject to approval" have successfully completed the first stage of this process. Applications are welcome but we will not make formal offers for this course until it has passed this second (and final) stage.

The master´s programme in Aeronautical Engineering at Linköping University offers a holistic view on aircraft design. An aircraft is a complex, integrated, closely connected system of various technologies and disciplines such as: aerodynamics, structure, propulsion, actuation systems and other on-board systems.

All these disciplines need to be optimised in order to achieve the functionality and efficiency required of an aircraft. The latter part of the programme involves a project in which these disciplines come together and challenge students to design, build and fly an aircraft, or a subscale version.

Industry affiliations

Linköping is the aviation capital of Sweden and one of few aviation cities in the world. Saab Aeronautics, the producer of the highly successful Gripen fighter aircraft, is a major actor in the region. Other related companies and military aviation establishments that reinforce Linköping’s aviation character are located in or near the city. The Aeronautical Engineering programme benefits from this, as some of the teachers have affiliations to the industry. Moreover, there is close research and education collaborations between the university and the industry.

Contemporary tools

The first year of the programme deals with the fundamentals of aeronautics, such as aircraft design, aerodynamics, engineering system design, product modelling, and aircraft systems and installation. Throughout the programme, special attention is given to a thorough progression with significant use of contemporary engineering design tools. A mix of elective and mandatory courses prepares you for your master’s thesis durign the final semester. There is a possibility to specialise within Aerodynamics, Aircraft System Design or Aircraft Structure.
