MSc Aerospace

Course Description

Key fact

The range of optional modules, and flexibility of formats and learning, make this course unique. You can also apply for the Government funded Aerospace MSc Bursary Scheme, created in partnership with employers, to study it.


This is part of a set of study options within the postgraduate Engineering Career and Capability Development Framework (ECCDF). The concept behind the Framework is to offer you flexibility in the modules you study, and the opportunity to move freely between award routes based on your career goals.

Flexible, industry-focused and professionally accredited

The MSc Aerospace is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). It's aimed at Engineers looking to increase their professional skills and capabilities in the industry through a strategic understanding of major technical, business and environmental factors. It's designed to help develop and broaden technical and business skills in the industry. It is also aimed at enhancing the industry's competitiveness and creating, developing and implementing flexible and innovative research and development opportunities.

Students on the course come are either full time students completing the award in one year, or industrially based students that from a wide range of different companies within the sector, including primes and throughout the supply chain. This mix of people from different backgrounds, companies and with different roles adds a unique perspective of peer learning, as you network and learn from each other.

However you approach the course, we're here to help support your long-term career professional development, including helping you develop a 'portfolio of evidence' to support your application to become a Chartered Engineer.

Peer learning and support

Many of the modules bring together students from a range of Master's engineering and management courses. This provides a strong learning experience, mixing technical and business skills with management capabilities.

Study Time

The overall course can be completed as full-time in one year, but is more normally studied part-time, taking between two and five years, as students are normally also in full employment.
