Postgraduate taught programmes
Advanced Aeronautical Engineering
Air travel is vital for the continued prosperity of the EU economy and is predicted to grow significantly over the next 20 years. The challenge facing aviation is to meet the predicted growth in demand in a way that ensures that the environment is protected.
This new MSc programme provides courses on the fundamental disciplines that are of prime importance for developing new enabling technologies vital to the design of more environmentally friendly future aircraft, and offers multi-disciplinary training in aircraft technologies for reducing environmental impact and life-cycle costs.
Advanced Computational Methods
Advanced training in computational methods, the underlying physical principles, and appropriate experimental techniques for aeronautics and other sectors.
It is suitable for applicants who wish to enhance their engineering training or to convert to an advanced engineering discipline from backgrounds in mathematics, physics or computer science.
You will develop specialist skills that are attractive to a broad spectrum of both aerospace and non-aerospace engineering industries.
New aircraft and other challenging engineering applications are becoming increasingly dependent upon the unique capabilities of high performance composite materials.
This course addresses the broad field of advanced composites and is presented by experts in the field from the College, other universities, major aerospace companies and government research organisations.
It will appeal to graduates of engineering, materials science, physics or chemistry.
