Today’s military aviation platforms are complex systems and it is essential, therefore, that they are deployed and maintained in such a way as to ensure their continued airworthiness and the safety of the crew operating them.
To achieve this requires engineers to be cognisant of a broad range of aerospace engineering, airworthiness and safety disciplines.
The Military Aerospace and Airworthiness programme offered by the Cranfield University distinguishes itself from similar courses offered by leading UK Universities by offering one focused specifically on the Military context and offers unique subject areas unavailable elsewhere.
You will be taught by staff, primarily from Cranfield Defence and Security and the School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing , many of them world leaders in their field. Visiting lecturers also include experts from industry, research establishments, and the MoD.
The course creates opportunities to develop your career at a more senior level and in achieving Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status.
