About Aerospace Engineering
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.

Demand for aerospace engineering graduates is rising, both in the UK and overseas. In fact, the UK aerospace industry is the second biggest in the world after the USA, and it’s home to some of the world’s leading aerospace companies such as Airbus, Astrium, BAE Systems, GKN and Rolls-Royce.
Our world-leading technology has contributed to many exciting projects, including aerodynamics for the current world land-speed record car, Thrust SSC, and the future land-speed record car BLOODHOUND SSC and design of the double-decker super-jet Airbus A380.
This course offers a broad range of advanced subjects across the mechanical engineering disciplines. It’s aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques, or those who want to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.
This specialist course has been developed to equip graduate engineers with the skills required of a highly demanding aerospace industry.
The Masters in Aerospace Engineering & Management introduces you to contemporary business and management issues while increasing your depth of knowledge in your chosen aerospace engineering speciality.
Flight workshop. We are world-leading in many research areas, from computational ¿uid dynamics to how engineering impacts public policy, while 100% of our impact case studies are graded as 'internationally excellent' or 'world- leading' (3* or 4*) (REF 2014).
Aeronautical engineering graduates are highly valued and in great demand. The Aeronautical Engineering masters is ideal for graduates seeking employment in the aeronautical sector and for practising aerospace engineers who want to extend and update their skills.
This new and unique course covers a wide range of applications focused on aerospace computational aspects. As mirrored by developments in the motorsport industry, within the next five years there will be a demand for engineers and leaders who will be using 100% digital techniques for aeronautical design and testing.
The Aerospace Engineering MSc aims to further develop students' knowledge of and expertise in specialist engineering subjects associated with the main application areas of aeronautical engineering.
You develop knowledge and key skills in advanced aerospace structures, advanced fluid dynamics, finite element methods, research and enterprise, space mission analysis and trajectory design, and supply chain management.
The College is based at Swansea University’s brand new beachfront Bay Campus, which has four buildings dedicated to engineering, holding 30,000m2 of laboratory and office space and over £10 million of new research and teaching equipment
