Course Summary

The Masters in Aerospace Engineering is a multi-disciplinary programme that covers all aspects of modern aircraft design. This involves developing essential knowledge and skills in advanced aerodynamics and aerospace systems. By choosing specific options in the second semester the degree programme can be tailored to provide specialisms in either Aeronautics or Systems.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The University of Glasgow has been the home of aerospace research for over 60 years. This long-standing activity has culminated in the Division of Aerospace Sciences having internationally recognised expertise in all areas of aeronautics and aerospace systems.
  • Students in this programme can benefit from access to our outstanding facilities: including several wind tunnels, a flight simulation lab, an autonomous unmanned vehicle (UAV) laboratory, helicopter test rig laboratories, structural testing apparatus and computer labs for modelling and simulation.
  • The school has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the school’s commitment to supporting women in scientific studies and careers, and to improving the working environment for all.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Career opportunities include aerospace, defence, laser targeting systems, renewable energy, radar development, structural engineering, autonomous systems and systems modelling.

Graduates of this programme have gone on to work for companies such as ALTEN, Iberia Express, UTC Aerospace Systems and ALTEN. Positions include Avionic and Mission System Engineer, Scientist and Graduate Engineer.

Modules

This is an introduction to the methods of spaceflight dynamics, demonstrate how these methods are applied to real space systems and demonstrate the use of spaceflight dynamics in space systems engineering.
