This course 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.
Sharing modules with the MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics and the MSc in Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering, this course gives you the opportunity to interact with students from other disciplines.
The taught modules are delivered from October to April via a combination of structured lectures, and computer-based labs. Many of the lectures are given in conjunction with some form of programming; you will be given time and practical assistance to develop your software skills.
Students on the part-time programme complete all of the compulsory modules based on a flexible schedule that will be agreed with the Course Director.
A first or second class UK honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, physics, computer science or an engineering discipline, or those with relevant industrial experience such as qualified engineers working with computational methods wishing to extend their knowledge.
Applicants who do not fulfil the standard entry requirements can apply for the Pre-Master’s course, successful completion of which will qualify them for entry to this course for a second year of study.
If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. Our minimum requirements are as follows:
IELTS Academic – 6.5 overall
TOEFL – 92
Pearson PTE Academic – 65
Cambridge English Scale – 180
Cambridge English: Advanced – C
Cambridge English: Proficiency – C
Trinity College London Integrated Skills in English III – pass
In addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We reserve the right to reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low.
We can only accept tests taken within two years of your registration date (with the exception of Cambridge English tests which have no expiry date).
Applicants who do not already meet the English language entry requirement for their chosen Cranfield course can apply to attend one of our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. We offer Winter and Summer programmes each year to offer holders.
