MSc Aerospace Engineering

Course Description


This Aerospace Engineering MSc aims to further develop students' knowledge of and expertise in specialist engineering subjects associated with the main application areas of aeronautical engineering. Particular prominence is given to Sustainable Aviation, Advanced Materials and Processes, Experimental Methods and Techniques, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Structural Analysis and Simulation, Flight Dynamics and Simulation, and Advanced Aircraft Systems, in particular Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

An emphasis on applied technical work will strengthen the engineering development skills of students from an academic background. The programme is delivered by a specialist team of academics. Access to state of the art laboratory and computing facilities within the new Engineering and Computing building. Personal tutor support throughout the postgraduate study. Excellent links with a number of industrial organisations enable access to the latest technology and real-world applications.


The mandatory study topics are as follows:

Sustainable Aviation;
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (UAV);
Experimental Methods and Techniques;
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD);
Advanced Materials and Processes;
Engineering Analysis and Simulation (FEA);
Flight Dynamics and Simulation;
Project Management;
Individual Project.
The substantial individual project gives students the opportunity to work on a detailed area of related technology alongside an experienced academic supervisor. Some projects are offered in conjunction with the work of the Faculty’s research centres or industry. Typical project titles include:

Integration of Advanced Materials into Aircraft Structures;
Sustainable Aircraft Development and Design;
Intelligent Power Generation;
UAV SWARM Systems.
You will have access to:

Unique Flight Simulator Suite (3 flight simulators, 2 UAV ground control systems plus the associated UAV,1 Air Traffic Control unit);
Harrier Jump Jet;
New bespoke Mercedes-Petronas low speed wind tunnel and associated measurement;
Faculty workshop (metal/woodwork), Composites Laboratory, Metrology Laboratory, Electrical Laboratory, Communications and Signal Processing Laboratory, Cogent Wireless Intelligent Sensing Laboratory;
Faculty Open Access Computer Facilities.
