NOTE: Are you a student from outside the EU? If you are an International student we have designed a version of this award especially for you! It is called the Extended International Master in Aeronautical Engineering. It includes an extra semester of preliminary study to prepare you for postgraduate learning in the UK. We strongly recommend that all international students take this option as it is proven to improve your chances of success. Take a look at this alternative course here.

About the Course A focus on the practical application of the advanced theories learnt. Familiarisation with a range of industry standard design and analysis software. The opportunity to undertake low cost gliding, with reduced price club membership for students. Good career prospects. The aerospace industry is one of the UK's most successful industrial sectors, with its involvement in major international project groups including Airbus, Rolls Royce, British Aerospace to name but a few. Not every university that teaches engineering includes Aeronautical Engineering in its portfolio, but Staffordshire University is proud to be running a new and innovative MSc award in this area which started September 2012.

The MSc in Aeronautical Engineering builds upon the success of the undergraduate Aeronautical programme which has been running at Staffordshire for over ten 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.

Course content
