Aerospace Systems

The University of Glasgow is one of the few institutions in the UK, and the only University in Scotland, to offer an Aerospace System MSc. Students in this programme can benefit from access to our outstanding facilities: including several wind tunnels, a flight simulation lab, an autonomous unmanned vehicle (UAV) laboratory, helicopter test rig laboratories and computer labs for modelling and simulation.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. Additionally, a sound understanding of programme relevant core engineering principles, such as mathematics, is expected and must be demonstrated in a 2.1 or equivalent in core subject components from the applicant's Honours degree. International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.

Course modules

Semester 1 core courses: aircraft flight dynamics; control M; navigation systems; simulation of aerospace systems; space flight dynamics 1. Semester 2 core courses: autonomous vehicle guidance systems; fault detection, isolation and reconfiguration; radar and electro-optic systems; robust control 5; aerospace systems team design project.

Assessment methods

To complete the MSc degree, students must undertake a project worth 60 credits. Students can choose a topic from a list of MSc projects in Aerospace Systems. Alternatively, should the student have their own idea for a project, department members are always open to discussion of topics.
