Postgraduate courses

At a postgraduate level the Faculty of Engineering and Business School offers a range of MSc and MBA courses. These courses are typically one year long and delivered primarily through taught modules but there is typically a project which accounts for approximately one third of your course.

Other courses of direct relevance to the aerospace sector, grouped by main school/department provider, include:

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering


Department of Civil Engineering


Department of Mechanical Materials and Manufacturing Engingeering


Business School


MSc Aerospace Technologies

We also offer a one-year full time MSc in Aerospace Technologies. This masters course is a multidisciplinary taught programme which complements the research strengths of the Institute for Aerospace Technology, drawing on the expertise of staff across the Faculty.

This programme aims to provide science or engineering graduates from a diversity of backgrounds, with a solid grounding in current aerospace technologies, together with options to develop an emphasis in manufacturing, advanced materials and structures, and power electronic systems.

This is an eligible course for the Aerospace MSc Bursary Scheme. The Bursary offers tuition fees of up to £9,500 - a limited number of bursaries are available.
