MSc (Research) Aerodynamics and Aerostructures

Programme code: MECT31

Aerodynamics and Aerostructures

This course offers a range of advanced level modules that address key issues faced by engineers in the aerospace and power generation sectors, and combines fundamental engineering knowledge with the latest developments in technology.

As well as taught modules you'll also undertake an individual research project, worth more than half of the overall course credits, giving you the opportunity to complete an in-depth investigation on a challenging and relevant topic. This substantial project provides practical experience of research, complemented by training in research methods and management, helping to prepare you for a career in industry or further research at PhD level.

Examples of previous research project titles:

  • Development of Aerodynamic Optimisation
  • An Autonomous Flight System for a Mini-UAV
  • Impacts of Structural Health Monitoring on Improving Aircraft Maintenance
  • Aerodynamic Design for Solar Powered HALE Aircraft
