Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

The aim of this programme is to allow students with a strong engineering background to gain advanced, yet broad knowledge in aerospace engineering, while encouraging specialisation through a research project and flexibility in the course programme. This programme will give you advanced skills in computational modelling, numerical techniques and an in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to current aerospace problems. You will learn the research and experimental skills necessary to work in the aerospace engineering industry, whether as a researcher or as an engineer for a major aerospace company. You will also collaborate with researchers working on alternative fuels sources, so it is relevant and timely.

This programme will: prepare you to develop new computational and technological products for the aerospace industries; allow you to join research groups working at the cutting edge of aerospace engineering, and computational modelling; give you the chance to specialise in your own area of interest

Our graduates work in research, development and consultancy positions within the engineering and materials industries for companies such as BAE Systems, Airbus, Rolls Royce, Eaton Aerospace and Atkins. Many graduates apply their degree knowledge directly, working as engineers and/or scientists in sectors relevant to those they have studied. Some graduates use their MSc to secure positions within the wider fields of mechanical and general engineering. Others work in areas beyond those directly related to their degree, including regulatory bodies, teaching and finance. The range of skills developed through our programmes, coupled with opportunities for extracurricular activities and work experience, has enabled our graduates to move into careers across many successful companies both in the UK and worldwide. A significant proportion of our graduates also go on to undertake PhDs in engineering.
