Aerospace engineering has evolved and diversified since the early days of powered flight. Employers now require skills ranging from aerodynamics and flight control to space engineering simulation and design. This diversity means that engineers need to be able to operate and develop advanced devices, and understand complex theoretical and computational models.
* This programme will give you advanced skills in computational modelling, numerical techniques and an in-depth understanding in engineering approaches to aerospace problems * After your degree, you will be well prepared to develop new computational and technological products for the aerospace industries * You will join research groups working at the cutting edge of aerospace engineering, and computational modelling * This is a well established course with variety and choice for students - there are a wide number of engineering modules, but also the chance to specialise on your own area
Why study with us?
The School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) undertakes high quality research in a wide range of areas. This research feeds into our teaching at all levels, helping us to develop very well qualified graduates with opportunities for employment both in many leading industries as well as in research. Both Engineering and Materials are very well established at Queen Mary, with the Aerospace Department being the first established in the UK. Our aerospace teaching programmes were ranked number 2 in the UK in the 2011 National Student Survey.
Studying Engineering has taught me to think, plan, organise and execute tasks in a systematic and methodical manner. Osman Bawa
* This MSc programme is available to students from a variety of non-engineering backgrounds such as Physics, Maths, and Electronic Engineering * It was the first of its kind in the country; offering some unique modules including, Aeroelasticity, Crash worthiness, and Space engineering * Students will collaborate with researchers working in alternative fuels sources, so it is relevant and timely * Aerospace Engineering is an employment related field which allows you to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in design, aerodynamics, propulsion and technology.
You will have access to a range of facilities, including:
* Excellent computing resources such as a high-performance computing cluster, several high-performance PC clusters and parallel high-performance SGI computer clusters, an extensive unit of Linux and UNIX workstations. * A wide range of experimental facilities from low speed wind tunnels with one of the lowest ever recorded turbulence level of 0.01% to supersonic wind tunnels, anechoic chamber dedicated to aeroacoustics problems, two new state-of-the-art electrospray technology laboratories, experimental propulsion, an advanced CueSim flight simulator and labs equipped with modern measurements techniques. * Engineering and Materials Sciences postgraduates will also have access to the School's extensive experimental facilities used for materials, the latest electron microscopes and a brand new Nanovision centre.
