Study mode and course location

On-campus (Clayton - F/T only)

Course description

This new course is offered in partnership with the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Glasgow. It is intended for engineering graduates who are employed in the aerospace industry or those who wish to seek employment in this industry. The course comprises eight units specific to the aerospace industry, which build on the student's theoretical engineering knowledge and enhance this through practical examples.

The eight units cover the interaction of structural mechanics, aerodynamics and avionics with aspects of aerospace engineering and design. Students learn to apply analytical techniques and methodologies to rigorously assess aerospace engineering projects and to design optimal solutions for aerospace engineering problems within budgetary and technical constraints. Graduates of this course also develop an understanding of regulatory and governance requirements relevant to the aerospace industry.

Course objectives

Graduates will understand the extension of existing knowledge in Mechanical Engineering and related disciplines to Aerospace Engineering; demonstrate an understanding of the interaction of structural/aerodynamic/avionics aspects of Aerospace Engineering. Graduates will be able to apply analytical techniques and methodologies to relevant to Aerospace Engineering; assess aerospace projects and governing criteria in a rigorous manner; practice critical appraisal of existing design and analysis methodologies with respect to existing and proposed aerospace applications and have confidence when applying an extension to existing knowledge to Aerospace applications. Graduates will be able to recognise the importance of balancing multiple and often conflicting parameters in aerospace analysis and design, thereby achieving an acceptable solution.
