This 12 month 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.
