Course Description

The Aircraft Design option of the MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design (AVD) aims to provide a comprehensive overview of aircraft performance, structures and systems. A holistic teaching approach is taken to explore how the individual elements of an aircraft can be designed and integrated using up-to-date methods and techniques. You will learn to understand how to select specific systems such as fuel systems, and their effect on the aircraft as a whole.
This course is suitable for students with a background in aeronautical or mechanical engineering or those with relevant industrial experience.

Overview

Modern aircraft design focuses on the integration of new technologies and systems, with current and advanced configurations to lead us towards environmentally friendly and cost effective aviation in the civil arena and high performance and effective aviation in the military arena. This includes new structures, materials and manufacturing processes. New aircraft design is essential to address issues such as carbon footprint reduction, lower noise pollution and improved passenger comfort as well as contributing to national security.

Our work in this field covers all flying vehicles including civil and military aircraft, helicopters, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (UAVS), ultra-high capacity airlines and space vehicles. Current research being undertaken includes:

Advanced Configurations – such as blended wing and morphing wing aircraft design. This includes both fixed wing and rotorcraft vehicles.

Advanced Systems Integration – such as Distributed Propulsion using hydrogen or alternative fuels for power and high temperature superconducting materials technology.

Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Processes – exploring the benefits achieved through the application of advanced composite materials.

Advanced Design Methodologies – developing techniques to ensure that optimum designs are achieved.

Airworthiness Compliance – ensuring new designs demonstrate the same safety requirements as traditional aircraft.

Operational Aspects – cost, performance, reliability and maintainability are important features of aircraft design as well as advanced techniques such as Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM). Vulnerability and susceptibility also have a major impact.

Biomimetics – taking lessons from nature for example insects and birds, and their application in aviation such as launch, recovery and flight.

English Language Requirements

If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. The minimum standard expected from a number of accepted courses are as follows:

IELTS - 6.5
TOEFL - 92
Pearson PTE Academic - 65

Workshops, group work, case studies and problem-based learning will be used to build your ability to critically review and assess options for design and assessment of temporary works. Your learning will be supported by the online learning environment Moodle, which will provide resources for independent learning, such as further reading, links to wider sources of information and quizzes for self-assessment.

All modules involve undertaking a certain number of individual and/or group assignments (coursework) during the teaching terms, as well as comprehensive final examinations.

Part-time students are expected to complete all the modules within the two-year period. The teaching periods are structured to deliver core modules in a sequence, which permits engagement by part-time students alongside full-time students. The project is undertaken by part-time students in the second year.

Teaching normally takes place on two full days per week, although there may be some variations to accommodate practical exercises and site visits. In addition, there is an introduction week at the start of the programme each year which is attended by all full and part-time students.

This method of delivery is designed to accommodate students working full-time within reasonable commuting distance of City, University of London, as well as to full-time students, by concentrating tuition into two days per week on average, and encouraging flexibility for independent study.

Modules

Temporary works refers to works enabling the construction of, protection, support or provision of access to permanent works which might or might not remain in place at the completion of a construction project. Examples of temporary works include structures such as gantries for heavy plant, materials or accommodation as well as supports for partially-completed or partially-dismantled structures, excavations and accesses. The course delivery and content is actively supported by the Temporary Works Forum (TWf), which promotes best practice within the UK construction industry and sponsors the Centre of Excellence in Temporary Works and Construction Method Engineering at City, University of London. The course content has been developed in collaboration with the TWf membership and TWf members will contribute to lectures and design exercises.

The course addresses the regulatory background to temporary works for construction, the design of geotechnical, structural and marine temporary works, demolition, plant, safe working methods and access works. You will gain both the technical understanding to undertake safe but cost-effective designs for a full range of temporary works and a good understanding of the wide range of plant and techniques that can be employed.

The programme will be delivered by industry experts providing insights into current practice in temporary works and academic members of staff experienced in the theory underlying the design methods employed. There will be visits to operational sites and practical exercises to provide opportunities to experience decision-making in the field, combined with group sessions to develop your knowledge further through active engagement. This will also require you to present your work occasionally, participate in peer review sessions and work in teams.

The course consists of eight taught modules and a project. The project is a major individual research exercise on a topic relevant to temporary works and construction method engineering. The main outcome of the project is a written report (dissertation).

Taught modules - the Temporary Works and Construction Method Engineering MSc comprises 180 credits, with 60 credits awarded to the project. Attendance is required to obtain 120 credits by studying all of the taught modules.

The taught modules address the following topics:
-An introduction to statutory obligations, management methods and special design considerations for temporary works.
-Design of structures used in and for temporary works, their construction and monitoring.
-Design of geotechnical temporary works and processes, including groundwater control and ground investigation.
-Design of temporary works for marine construction, in particular floating structures and the effect of waves and varying water levels.
-The use of plant in temporary works and the provision of appropriate working platforms and access.
-Demolition and alteration of structures, including the disposal/reuse of construction waste.

Project - the topics/titles for the major project can be chosen from:
-A list suggested by the lecturers of the course.
-Your own ideas/initiatives.
-Where applicable, by your sponsoring company/industrial partner.

Our collaboration with members of the TWf means that many of the topics offered will relate to problems of current interest to industry and will be co-supervised by industry organisations.

Career prospects

Temporary works are an important aspect of most construction projects. Consequently, a qualification in this field will have widespread application across all civil engineering disciplines, whether you are working as an on-site engineer or as a design office engineer. You could also go into the research arena conducting innovative research in the area of temporary works.
