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.
With its blend of skills-based and subject-specific material this course aims to provide students with generic practical skills and cutting-edge knowledge adaptable to the wide variety of applications in the field of aerospace computational engineering.
The part-time option is suitable for qualified engineers to extend their knowledge and incorporate CFD into their skill set.
This course aims to enhance your skills through a detailed introduction to the state-of-the-art computational methods and their applications for digital age aerospace engineering applications. It provides a unique opportunity for cross-disciplinary education and knowledge transfer in the computational engineering of fluid and solid mechanics for aerospace industrial applications. Focusing on fully integrated digital design for aerospace applications you will be able to understand and implement numerical methods on various computing platforms for aerospace applications. You will be able to meet the demand of an evolving workplace that requires highly qualified engineers possessing core software engineering skills together with competency in mathematical analysis techniques.
Sharing modules with the MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics and the MSc in Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering this course gives you the opportunity to interact with students from other disciplines.
Our strategic links with industry ensures that all of the materials taught on the course are relevant, timely and meet the needs of organisations competing within the computational analysis sector. This industry led education makes Cranfield graduates some of the most desirable for companies to recruit. Our industrial partners support this course by providing internship, act as visiting lectures and deliver industrial seminars.
Following the first graduation, this course will seek to obtain accreditation from:
The taught modules are delivered from October to April via a combination of structured lectures, and computer based labs. Many of the lectures are given in conjunction with some form of programming, you will be given time and practical assistance to develop your software skills.
Students on the part-time programme complete all of the compulsory modules based on a flexible schedule that will be agreed with the course director.
The Group project is related to digital wind tunnel development.
The taught element of the course finishes in May. From May to September you will work full-time on your individual research project. The research project gives you the opportunity to produce a detailed piece of work either in close collaboration with industry, or on a particular topic which you are passionate about.
Taught modules: 80%, Group project: 40%, Individual Research Project: 80%
The MSc in Aerospace Computational Engineering is designed to equip you with the skills required to pursue a successful career working in the UK and overseas in computational aeronautic design and engineering.
Our courses attract enquiries from companies in the rapidly expanding engineering IT industry sector across the world who wish to recruit high quality graduates who have strong technical programming skills in industry standard languages and tools. They are in demand by CAD vendors, commercial engineering software developers, aerospace, automotive and other industries and research organisations, and have been particularly successful in finding employment.
Some of our graduates go onto PhD degrees. Project topics are most often supplied by individual companies on in-company problems with a view to employment after graduation – an approach that is being actively encouraged by a growing number of industries.
