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.
English language course for academic purposes
Accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English, the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) runs 5-week English language and study skills courses for Engineering.
These courses are designed in collaboration with the faculty and prepare students going on to postgraduate MSc programmes within the Faculty of Engineering.
If you are close to the English language level you need to go on to this course and you meet the entry requirements for the relevant CELE course, you may be eligible for a joint offer. This means that:
- you only need one TIER 4 visa and CAS
- you take a 5-week English language and academic skills preparation course, and then go onto your MSc course
- your progression to the MSc is automatic, provided you attend and complete all the coursework
For more details, please visit the CELE website or email firstname.lastname@example.org
