The University’s Centre for Aviation Transport and the Environment (CATE) has been very influential upon the growth and development of the industry both regionally and globally. Key contributions include the United Nations Global Atmosphere Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on Aviation and the Environment. Consequently, the course has access to many of the tools and expertise necessary to assess the environmental impacts of aviation.
This MSc examines the role of the air transport industry in supporting city and regional development as well as the positive and negative economic, social, community and environmental impacts of aviation. It provides training in the science and business of aviation and gives the opportunity to investigate and carry out real projects allied to aviation, the economy and the environment.
