Why this course?
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and provides a route for you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
It has been developed to provide high-calibre mechanical engineering graduates with an in-depth technical understanding of advanced mechanical engineering topics together with generic skills that will allow them to contribute effectively post graduation.
The course helps you to become a specialist in the area of aerospace. You'll also have the opportunity to take modules in general skills such as project management and risk analysis. These are necessary skills for any professional aerospace engineer.
You'll study three compulsory modules:
- Aerodynamics Performance
- Aerodynamic Propulsion Systems
- Spaceflight Mechanics
You'll select a number of specialist instructional classes in your chosen area. You'll also choose three generic skill modules from the following topics:
- Design Management
- Project Management
- Information Management
- Risk Management
- Environmental Impact Assessment
- Knowledge Engineering & Management for Engineers
MSc students take on an individual project which allows study of a selected topic in-depth. This may be an industry-themed project or one aligned to engineering research at Strathclyde.
Our facilities include many laboratories and research centres including:
- Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory
- Energy Systems Research Unit
- Future Air-Space Transportation Technology
- James Weir Fluids Laboratory
- Mechanics & Materials Research Centre
We have local access to a 3500-node region supercomputer.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and meets requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
