Not every university that teaches engineering includes Aeronautical Engineering in its portfolio, but Staffordshire University is proud to be running this innovative MSc award. The MSc in Aeronautical Engineering builds upon the success of the undergraduate Aeronautical programme which has been running at Staffordshire for thirteen years.

The MSc is an award for the graduate engineer (who will have usually studied a BEng(hons) in Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering or equivalent, or possibly a BSc(hons) in Aeronautical Technology) and who wishes to expand and deepen their knowledge of aeronautical engineering.

The MSc covers a broad range of areas including fixed wing and rotary aircraft, subsonic and supersonic flight regimes, aircraft propulsion systems, aircraft control systems, materials, etc. As well as taught classes, students use our extensive range of laboratories which include industry standard design and analysis software, including Pro Engineer, Phoenix CFD, ANSYS FEA, etc.

Applicants who require a Tier 4 visa for study in the UK are not able to apply for the Sandwich degree in the first instance due to Immigration regulations. We encourage International students, once enrolled, to apply for a placement and we have a dedicated team of experts who will lead you through the process. Students who are successful with finding a placement will be provided with help and advice with their visa extension application (subject to the University deadlines and Immigration requirements).

It is possible for the MSc students to join the undergraduate Aeronautics students in becoming a member of the local gliding club, where it is possible to experience gliding, whether this is just a couple of air-experience flights, or joining the club as a student member and in some cases taking hundreds of flights and achieving a gliding qualification. Many airline pilots started their flying career by gliding.

A range of external speakers will be invited to give lectures to the MSc students, including designers from industry and airline pilots. There is an opportunity for students on the MSc to undertake a placement with one of the local, regional, national or international aerospace companies, and assistance in finding these placements is given by the Placements Office.

Course content

On the Engineering Extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules that have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed on your chosen award. All engineering students on the Extended MSc study the same modules for one semester and then study specialist modules depending on their chosen discipline. This means that whether you have chosen the Aeronautical, Automotive, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Mechatronic or Telecommunication route, you will study the following modules in your first semester:

Academic English: This module will help you to develop your English Language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will introduce you to the conventions of academic writing.

Study skills & Employability: This module will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to support study at Masters level. It will also help you to develop skills that will aid you in the job market and will look at things such as writing a C.V. and creating a personal development plan.

Engineering Principles: In this module you will undertake a variety of practical, laboratory based exercises giving you a flavour of your future studies and underpinning your future learning.

Student Quotes

“After passing all the modules on the MSc Aerospace Engineering course, I had the possibility to develop my final thesis in an industrial environment. I learnt about avionics and electronic equipment and developed team work and communication skills.

My favourite memory of the MSc Aerospace Engineering course is our team winning the International Aircraft Design and Handling competition. Our effort really paid off when we won the first prize!

Before starting my final thesis, I found a job as an Applications Engineer in one of the most important aerospace engineering companies, MTorres. Personally, I think obtaining a Master’s degree in a university with a great reputation such as Swansea University makes it much easier to find a job.

Swansea University provides a fantastic opportunity to study any field of engineering due to the professional and friendly staff.”

The MSc course in Autosport Engineering covers the latest state of-the-art computer based analysis and design techniques used in the automotive industry. The course has been developed in conjunction with the Automotive Industry and will provide the graduate with an in-depth insight into the key technological areas that are driving automotive engineering design.

On the Engineering Extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules that have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed on your chosen award. All engineering students on the Extended MSc study the same modules for one semester and then study specialist modules depending on their chosen discipline. This means that whether you have chosen the Aeronautical, Automotive, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Mechatronic or Telecommunication route, you will study the following modules in your first semester:

Academic English: This module will help you to develop your English Language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will introduce you to the conventions of academic writing.

Study skills & Employability: This module will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to support study at Masters level. It will also help you to develop skills that will aid you in the job market and will look at things such as writing a C.V. and creating a personal development plan.

Engineering Principles: In this module you will undertake a variety of practical, laboratory based exercises giving you a flavour of your future studies and underpinning your future learning. You will be given experience of software tools that might include product design using solid modelling, CFD analysis for aerodynamics and Finite Element Analysis for structural analysis. This will be complemented by time spent in our new and wellequipped automotive, aeronautical and mechanical laboratories.

Mathematical Applications: As an engineering graduate you should already have a strong mathematical knowledge. This module will revise your existing knowledge and introduce you to some of the more advanced mathematical concepts deployed in the field of professional engineering. Where appropriate you will utilise software to support and enhance the problem solving and analysis techniques met in this module, allowing you to hone an essential skill for the modern industry based working environment

After successfully completing the first semester, you will concentrate on your chosen core engineering discipline. You will study a total of 8 core and option modules as set out in your award structure. For information about the structure of your award and the modules you will study after the first semester, please see the award handbooks.
