University of Bristol

Aerospace Engineering

Research within the department and faculty is organised via cross-faculty research groups. Research interests are pursued via three major sections: - Fluid Flow and Aerodynamics - Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science (ACCIS) - Dynamics and Control This work is supported by at least 30 academic staff, more than 50 research staff and over 150 postgraduate students, plus a highly experienced administrative and technical support team. There is a wide range of research in the department, spanning experimental, numerical, theoretical and computational, and all is applied to aerospace-related problems, for example, fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, wind turbines and UAVs. All postgraduates would expect to publish in high-quality journals and present at international conferences. Hence, research programmes are aimed at independent and self-motivated applicants. Applicants should contact a potential academic adviser to discuss available projects before submitting an application.
