Course summary

This course is suitable if you have an engineering background and a particular interest in aircraft technologies. Air travel is vital for the prosperity of the economy and is predicted to grow significantly over the next 20 years. The challenge facing aviation is to meet this demand while ensuring the environment is protected. You will learn the fundamentals disciplines needed to develop new technologies and greener aircraft.

The course offers multidisciplinary training in aircraft technologies for reducing environmental impact and life-cycle costs. The facilities in the Department are of a high standard, with the latest industry-standard software available for students to use.

The programme can be completed in one-year on a full-time basis. The programme is comprised of core and optional modules: the core modules are compulsory and consist of a set of introductory non-examinable modules and modules related to the "Green Aviation" initiative. The optional modules deal with advanced aeronautical engineering topics. You will also complete an extensive four-month individual research project. The project is made up of a piece of individual research which must include some element of originality and can be wholly experimental, wholly theoretical, or a mixture of the two. The Department of Aeronautics' current professional accreditation agreement is due to be renewed and the department is seeking re-accreditation for its courses. We expect to be successful in this renewal.

Please note that the curriculum of this programme is currently being reviewed as part of a College-wide process to introduce a standardised modular structure. As a result, the content and assessment structures of this course may change for your year of entry. We therefore recommend that you check this course page before finalising your application and after submitting it as we will aim to update this page as soon as any changes are ratified by the College.
