Course summary

Global aerospace is at the forefront of advanced engineering and technology. Despite the prevailing unprecedented challenges, there is long-term demand for highly-skilled aerospace engineers to help drive innovation, deliver new efficiencies, and set new benchmarks.

Aerospace engineering at Salford focuses on the design and creation of aircraft, spacecraft and associated components. Across a range of specialist modules, you will refine your analytical skills and practical knowledge of engineering devices and associated components used in the production of civil and military aircraft, spacecraft, and weapons systems.

Salford is a prominent regional UK centre for aeronautics study and research. Providing a gateway to professional status, our Aerospace Engineering postgraduate course is designed to meet the requirements of the Engineering Councils Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP).

You will:

  • Enhance your understanding of aerodynamics, system design and flight control
  • Study in a purpose-built learning environment dedicated to aeronautics and robotics teaching and research
  • Gain critical thinking skills and the confidence to make informed decisions on the design, development and manufacture of the next-generation craft and equipment
  • Benefit from an expert teaching team, supported by strong connections within the aviation industry


Aerospace is one of the world’s growth industries and is projected to continue experiencing ongoing growth. In 2018 alone, 62.5 million tonnes of valuable and time-critical air cargo was flown around the world. It is predicted that many as 7.8 billion passengers will use air travel by 2036 (in comparison to 4.4 billion in 2018). The forecasts highlight the potential for you to develop a successful long-term career in this field.

Popular career routes for aerospace engineering graduates range from the design, manufacture and operation of aerospace vehicles to working for aerospace-associated companies and their suppliers, governments and research institutions.

Today, you will find Salford alumni working at leading companies, including Airbus, BAE Systems, Roll-Royce, Thales, and Royal Air Force. Our graduates typically find roles at companies involved in the design and manufacture of major sub-units of aeroplanes and related aerospace vehicles, such as engines, structural parts, avionics or environmental control systems.


To maintain real-world relevance and learning outcomes, the programme team draw on long-standing professional relationships with aeronautics and aviation industry in the north-west, the wider UK and overseas. These links, developed through collaborative research, development projects and commercial testing of products/components, support teaching, foster networking and enhance your learning experience.

Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert awards.
