The Aerospace Manufacturing course offered by the Cranfield University combines the university's long standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters' programmes in both aerospace and manufacturing.
Courses receive strong support from the global aerospace industry, both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce, as well as their tiers of supplier.
There is a strong emphasis on applying knowledge in the industrial environment and all teaching is in the context of industrial application. Many features of this course are shared with the Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems MSc, but this course specifically prepares graduates to embark on a career in aerospace manufacturing.
Students benefit from our wide range of equipment, analysis tools and specialist software packages. The course objectives are achieved through a carefully integrated and structured series of eight one-week assessed modules, a group project and an individual project.
This qualification takes you on to a wide range of aerospace manufacturing roles such as management, operations, logistics and technology-related functions within global aerospace manufacturing organisations. Many graduates find employment with one of their project sponsors.
The MSc in Aerospace Manufacturing is subject to ratification by Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) & Insitution of Engineering & Technology (IET) following an accreditation visit in March 2015, on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
