Student Quotes

“After passing all the modules on the MSc Aerospace Engineering course, I had the possibility to develop my final thesis in an industrial environment. I learnt about avionics and electronic equipment and developed team work and communication skills.

My favourite memory of the MSc Aerospace Engineering course is our team winning the International Aircraft Design and Handling competition. Our effort really paid off when we won the first prize!

Before starting my final thesis, I found a job as an Applications Engineer in one of the most important aerospace engineering companies, MTorres. Personally, I think obtaining a Master’s degree in a university with a great reputation such as Swansea University makes it much easier to find a job.

Swansea University provides a fantastic opportunity to study any field of engineering due to the professional and friendly staff.”

Roberto Morujo, MSc Aerospace Engineering
