Aircraft Design (with option of Aerospace Vehicle Design)

The Aircraft Design option of the MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design (AVD) aims to provide a comprehensive overview of aircraft performance, structures and systems. A holistic teaching approach is taken to explore how the individual elements of an aircraft can be designed and integrated using up-to-date methods and techniques. You will learn to understand how to select specific systems such as fuel systems, and their effect on the aircraft as a whole. This course is suitable for students with a background in aeronautical or mechanical engineering or those with relevant industrial experience.
