Course Summary

This course specialises in areas including aeroelasticity, steady and unsteady aerodynamics, non-linear dynamics, control systems, flapping wings and probabilistic structural analysis. Aerospace research at the University of Hertfordshire has been supported with grants from the EPSRC, the De Havilland Trust and industry. Our PhD courses enable students to develop specialist research skills and knowledge. We aim to provide PhD projects that will challenge and in some cases even inspire our students. Each student will be assigned a Principal and a second supervisor who are experts in the research topic. The research will be conducted in our labs which are well-equipped for research in the topics of our expertise. Students studying on Full-Time mode are expected to submit their registration and progression reports in the first and second years of the research programme respectively and are formally assessed in the form of a viva by (usually) an internal examination panel. In completion of their 3rd year students are expected to start the preparation for their final assessment and to submit their thesis which is examined in the form of a viva by an external and an internal examiner (Part-Time mode assessment deadlines are extended accordingly).
