The Masters in Aerospace Engineering is a multi-disciplinary programme that covers all aspects of modern aircraft design. This involves developing essential knowledge and skills in advanced aerodynamics and aerospace systems. By choosing specific options in the second semester the degree programme can be tailored to provide specialisms in either Aeronautics or Systems.
Why this programme
The University of Glasgow has been the home of Aerospace Research for over 60 years. This long-standing activity has culminated in the Division of Aerospace Sciences having been internationally recognised expertise in all areas of Aeronautics and Aerospace Systems
The School of Engineering’s aeronautical engineering is consistently highly ranked among the top 10 in the UK and recently achieved 1st in Scotland (Complete University Guide 2017).
Modes of delivery of the MSc in Aerospace Engineering include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in lab, project and team work.
The summer period is dedicated to project work, with either academic or industrial placements providing the context for your project.
