About the course

Enhance your knowledge of aerospace systems and structures with advanced modules and an extensive research project.

Subjects include: aerodynamics and aeropropulsion, fatigue and fracture of aerospace components, composites for aerospace applications and structural health monitoring of aerospace structures.

Your career

Our courses are designed to prepare you for a career in industry. You’ll get plenty of practical research experience, as well as training in research methods and management. Recent graduates now work for Arup, Rolls-Royce and Network Rail.

A world-famous department

This is one of the largest, most respected mechanical engineering departments in the UK. Our reputation for excellence attracts world-class staff and students. They’re involved in projects like improving car designs and designing jaw replacements – projects that make a difference.

Our world-famous research centres include the Insigneo Institute, where we’re revolutionising the treatment of disease, and the Centre for Advanced Additive Manufacturing. We also work closely with the University’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

Support for international students

Our students come from all over the world. We’ll help you get to know the department and the city. Your personal tutor will support you throughout your course and we can help you with your English if you need it.
