This 12 month programme aims to provide science or engineering graduates with a solid grounding in current aerospace technologies, together with the options to develop an emphasis in manufacturing, advanced materials, and power and electronic systems.
The MSc comprises of four distinct "aerospace" streams:
- Advanced materials and structures
- Power electronics
- Navigation technologies
Students will choose which stream they wish to study. 60 credits of core compulsory modules will be studied and then a further 60 credits of modules will be taken in the chosen stream.
As part of this MSc students will complete an individual research project which will be undertaken over the summer term.
On completion of this course students should:
- have the ability to apply appropriate quantitative science and engineering tools to the analysis of problems
- be able to use fundamental knowledge to investigate new and emerging technologies
- appreciate the social, environmental, ethical, economic and commercial considerations affecting the exercise of their engineering judgement
You will gain experience of the type of problems encountered by academic and industrial researchers, both via taught courses and project work.
Accreditation and aerospace at Nottingham
An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
This course is informed by the University of Nottingham's research strength in aerospace, which is one of our key research priority areas.
The Faculty of Engineering launched it's Institute for Aerospace Technology in 2010, driving the development of new technology, and looking to radically improve all aspects of air transport.
Academic English preparation and support
If you need additional support to take your language skills to the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education, which is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK.
Students who successfully complete the presessional course to the required level can progress to postgraduate study without retaking IELTS or equivalent.
A specialist engineering course is available and you could be eligible for a joint offer, which means you will only need to apply for your visa once.
