Aerodynamics (option of Aerospace Dynamics)

The MSc in Aerodynamics provides an understanding of the aerodynamic behaviour of aircraft, coupled with knowledge of flow control, flow assessment and simulation techniques will be essential for the design of the next generation of manned aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). You will begin the year with an intensive period of flight testing on board the National Flying Laboratory Centre (NFLC) Jetstream aircraft. This forms the backdrop for the taught components that cover aerodynamic performance, aerodynamic design and simulation using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). There is a significant degree of choice in modules covering both aerodynamics and flight dynamics enabling you to form your own portfolio of skills and expertise. There is an option to take modules related to the increasingly important areas of CFD and experimental methods.
