About

The Aerospace Computational Engineering programme offered by the Cranfield University covers a wide range of applications focused on aerospace computational aspects. As mirrored by developments in the motorsport industry, within the next five years there will be a demand for engineers and leaders who will be using 100% digital techniques for aeronautical design and testing.

Overview

The Aerospace Computational Engineering programme offered by the Cranfield University aims to enhance your skills through a detailed introduction to the state-of-the-art computational methods and their applications for digital age aerospace engineering applications. 

It provides a unique opportunity for cross-disciplinary education and knowledge transfer in the computational engineering of fluid and solid mechanics for aerospace industrial applications. 

Focusing on fully integrated digital design for aerospace applications you will be able to understand and implement numerical methods on various computing platforms for aerospace applications. 

You will be able to meet the demand of an evolving workplace that requires highly qualified engineers possessing core software engineering skills together with competency in mathematical analysis techniques.

Careers

The MSc in Aerospace Computational Engineering is designed to equip you with the skills required to pursue a successful career working in the UK and overseas in computational aeronautic design and engineering. 

Our courses attract enquiries from companies in the rapidly expanding engineering IT industry sector across the world who wish to recruit high quality graduates who have strong technical programming skills in industry standard languages and tools. 

They are in demand by CAD vendors, commercial engineering software developers, aerospace, automotive and other industries and research organisations, and have been particularly successful in finding employment.

Some of our graduates go onto PhD degrees. Project topics are most often supplied by individual companies on in-company problems with a view to employment after graduation – an approach that is being actively encouraged by a growing number of industries.
