Masters degrees in Aerospace Engineering train students in the development and construction of aircraft and related technologies. This can include the general design of planes, helicopters and other vehicles as well as the improvement of specific hardware such as fuel systems or engine construction.
Taught MSc degrees are typical of this field, but research courses are also available. Some include appropriate industrial internships and placements.
Aerospace Engineering is an exciting and quite literally dynamic field of study. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the practical processes behind some of the most impressive feats of human technology and ingenuity, whilst contributing to their future.
Programmes are often offered within specialist departments, with dedicated facilities. These allow postgraduate engineering students to gain first-hand experience of aeronautic processes, by working with real hardware and high-tech models.
A range of ‘high flying’ careers are available, including work for famous aircraft manufacturers in research and development or production roles. Other employers might include military contractors, commercial airlines or transport and infrastructure companies.
