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 30+ academic, 50+ research staff and 150+ postgraduates, 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 are advised to contact a potential academic adviser to discuss available projects before submitting an application.

Entry requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in science, mathematics or engineering.
