The course is designed to reflect the wide applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics. There is an increasing demand for CFD specialists with practical and technical knowledge. This course will enable you to gain the knowledge and appreciation necessary for a strong foundation to a career in this exciting engineering discipline. You will learn to understand, write and apply CFD methods across a broad range of fields, from aerospace, turbomachinery, multi-phase flow and heat transfer, to microflows, environmental flows and fluid-structure interaction problems. Personalise your course by choosing from a range of specialist modules covering application-specific methods and techniques.

Who is it for?

Designed to meet the education needs of graduates and professional engineers who are looking to kick-start an industrial or research career in the rapidly growing field of Computational Fluid Dynamics. This course bridges the gap between the introductory level of undergraduate courses and the applied expertise acquired by engineers using CFD in industry. You will gain the knowledge and appreciation of CFD methods necessary for a strong foundation to a career in this exciting engineering discipline.

Why this course?

The MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics provides a solid background so that you will be able to apply CFD methods as a tool for design, analysis and engineering applications. With a strong emphasis on understanding and application of the underlying methods, enthusiastic students will be able to write their own CFD codes during the course.

Sharing modules with several MSc programmes within the school, this enables you to interact with students from other disciplines. In recent years, our students have been had the opportunity for work-based placements at the Aircraft Research Association (ARA), AIRBUS, European Space Agency (ESA), Ricardo and DAF Trucks.

Accreditation

The MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

Your career

Strategic industrial links ensure that the course meets the needs of the organisations competing within the computational sector therefore making our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for companies to recruit. An increasing demand for CFD specialists with in depth technical knowledge and practical skills within a wide range of sectors has seen our graduates employed by leading companies including:

  • Alstom
  • BAE Systems
  • Cummins Turbo Technology
  • BHR
  • ESTEC
  • Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd
  • NUMECA
  • ONERA
  • ARA
  • Rolls-Royce plc
