What will I learn?

Overview of the Programme

Aircraft aerodynamics and flying and handling performances are always the most important and challenging aspects for aircraft designs, particularly with the consideration of advanced materials and advanced aircraft technologies.

At Wrexham Glyndŵr University, the MSc Engineering (Aeronautical) will enable candidates to develop a deep understanding and solid skills in aerodynamics and aerodynamic design of aircraft, grasp detailed knowledge and application principles of composite materials and alloys, critically review and assess the application and practice of advanced materials in modern aircraft, model and critically analyse aircraft flight dynamic behaviour and apply modern control approaches for control-configured aircraft.

Candidates will have access to state-of-art Merlin flight simulator for design and testing their own aircraft, will learn and use cutting-edge design, analysis and simulation software: MATLAB/Simulink, CATIA v5, ANSYS, and ABAQUS, and will have access to subsonic and supersonic wind tunnel facilities and rapid prototyping facilities. Glyndŵr University is located nearby to one of the largest aircraft company in the world, Airbus and also has close links with aviation industries, such as Rolls-Royce, Raytheon, Magellan, and Airbus.

Key Course Features

  • The courses will give you the chance to advance your career to management levels.
  • You might also consider consultancy, research and development, testing and design positions within the aeronautical industry. Airbus is a classic example of an employer excelling in this field in the north Wales region.

Assessment and Teaching

You will be assessed throughout your course through a variety of methods including portfolios, presentations and, for certain subjects, examinations.

Teaching and Learning

Teaching methods include lectures, laboratory sessions, student-led seminars and guided research.

Independent learning is an important aspect of all modules, as it enables students to develop both their subject specific and key skills.

Independent learning is promoted through guided study or feedbacks given to students.

Wrexham Glyndŵr University is committed to supporting our students to maximise their academic potential.

Career Prospects

The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within industry or to pursue research careers within academia.
