This Aerospace Computational Engineering programme offered by 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.
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 aerospace design and engineering.
Our courses attract enquiries from companies in the rapidly expanding aerospace computational and digital engineering industrial sector across the world who wish to recruit high quality graduates who have strong technical programming skills, and can assess and evaluate the results of digital/numerical simulations. They are in demand by CAD vendors, commercial engineering software developers, aerospace and computational science-related industrial sectors 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 industrial companies offering unsolved engineering problems and purely academic-related research projects in the field of computational engineering are also available. Our graduates are highly employable after graduation in the wide range of industrial sector including R&D departments as well as academia. Our approach to a research degree is being actively sought by a growing number of industries and academic research institutions keen to expand their impact and innovation.
Following the first graduation, this course will seek to obtain accreditation from:
- Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
- Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS)
- The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
