NOTE: Are you a student from outside the EU? If you are an International student we have designed a version of this award especially for you! It is called the Extended International Master in Aeronautical Engineering. It includes an extra semester of preliminary study to prepare you for postgraduate learning in the UK. We strongly recommend that all international students take this option as it is proven to improve your chances of success. Take a look at this alternative course here.

About the Course A focus on the practical application of the advanced theories learnt. Familiarisation with a range of industry standard design and analysis software. The opportunity to undertake low cost gliding, with reduced price club membership for students. Good career prospects. The aerospace industry is one of the UK's most successful industrial sectors, with its involvement in major international project groups including Airbus, Rolls Royce, British Aerospace to name but a few. Not every university that teaches engineering includes Aeronautical Engineering in its portfolio, but Staffordshire University is proud to be running a new and innovative MSc award in this area which started September 2012.

The MSc in Aeronautical Engineering builds upon the success of the undergraduate Aeronautical programme which has been running at Staffordshire for over ten years. The MSc is an award for the graduate engineer (who will have usually studied a BEng(hons) in Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering or equivalent, or possibly a BSc(hons) in Aeronautical Technology) and who wishes to expand and deepen their knowledge of aeronautical engineering.

The MSc covers a broad range of areas including fixed wing and rotary aircraft, subsonic and supersonic flight regimes, aircraft propulsion systems, aircraft control systems, materials, etc. As well as taught classes, students use our extensive range of laboratories which include industry standard design and analysis software, including Pro Engineer, Phoenix CFD, ANSYS FEA, etc.

Course content

Students study eight taught modules then undertake a research-based dissertation, the length of the course being about 12 months in total.

Modules studied include: ​​​
-Technical and Study Skills
-Research Methods and Project Management
-Control Systems for Aeronautics
-Structural Integrity
-Aircraft Propulsion Systems
-Advanced Aeronautics
-Advanced Vehicle Aerodynamics
-MSc Project the 60 credit dissertation module, student centred but with close staff guidance.

Options include:
-MSc Project by Distance Learning (as an alternative to the MSc Project)
-Advanced Engineering Materials

Engineering is a major wealth creator for the UK and many other economies worldwide. Highly qualified engineers command a high salary and are much sought after. This course will provide you with significant skills in the major engineering functions allowing you to work in a senior technical or project management role within industry.

Course content

The course consists of 8 taught modules plus a major personal project leading to a written thesis. The taught modules cover the broad range of activities involved in designing and validating new products and machinery. You will study topics such as solid and surface modelling, rapid prototyping, Finite Element Analysis, advanced materials and thermodynamics. The subject area of your final thesis can be selected to suit your own aspirations and interests. You will be assigned a supervisor with whom you will work closely to develop an academically challenging portfolio of work.

Core modules are:
-Research Methods & Project Management
-Design Technologies for Masters
-Energy Management
-Structural Integrity
-Advanced Engineering Materials
-Applied Structural Integrity
-MSc

Project Option Modules are:
-Industrial Robotics & Control
-Control System
-Sustainable Design & Manufacture
-Industrial Placement

This course can be completed within 1 year. However this timescale is dependent on students starting the course in September, passing all modules, undertaking their project during the summer semester and experiencing no other delays (such as health issues). Many students choose to delay their project start and enjoy a well-deserved summer break to ‘re-charge their batteries’ which also has academic benefits. In this case a more realistic duration is 15 months.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council (partial CEng). The MSc 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.

Employment opportunities

Upon graduation you will be ideally placed to work in a manufacturing or engineering company at a senior level working towards Chartered (CEng) status. If you prefer the course also gives a good grounding in research techniques which could allow you to continue your personal research interests to PhD level.
