About

The Gun Systems Design course from Cranfield University covers the essential technology required for the participants to take a lead role within their organisation on the specification, design and development of gun systems.

Overview

The Gun Systems Design course from Cranfield University is part of the Weapon and Vehicle Systems Engineering Programme. This course offers the underpinning knowledge and education to enhance the student’s suitability for senior positions within their organisation. 

This course provides education and training in selected weapons systems and provides students with the depth of knowledge to undertake engineering analysis or the evaluation of relevant sub systems.

Each individual module is designed and offered as a standalone course which allows an individual to understand the fundamental technology required to efficiently perform the relevant, specific job responsibilities. 

This MSc course is made up of two essential components: the equivalent of 12 taught modules (including some double modules, typically of a two-week duration), and an individual project. MSc and PGDip students take 11 compulsory modules and 1 optional module. PGCert students take 4 compulsory modules and 2 optional modules.
