Course summary

With the continued growth of the global aerospace sector and the renewed interest in space systems, there is a real need for specialist engineers with a deep understanding of aerospace materials.

This course develops specialist skills to enhance and design new materials for next-generation aircraft and future aerospace. You will play a major role in addressing environmental impact and sustainability with the sector.

Who is it for?

There is a need for engineering graduates with specialist skills to develop new materials for next generation aircraft and the future aerospace industry. During this course you will cover the improvement and development of materials for aviation applications and space systems, including materials for airframe, aeroengine and the increased use of smart and functional materials.

Why this course?

The course combines Cranfield's long-standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters' programmes in both aerospace and materials. Our courses receive strong support from the global aerospace industry, both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Airbus, BA systems, Safran and Rolls-Royce, as well as their tiers of supplier. There is a strong emphasis on applying knowledge in the industrial environment and all teaching is in the context of industrial application.

Accreditation

Re-accreditation for the MSc in Aerospace Materials is currently being sought with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) and Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Your career

This qualification takes you on to senior engineering positions in the aerospace industry with a focus on exploiting next generation materials. Many graduates find employment with one of their project sponsors.

On completion of this MSc, graduates have a broader network of global contacts, increased opportunities for individual specialism and a wide range of careers options involving materials with responsibilities in research, development, design, engineering, consultancy and management.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
