Aerodynamics and Computation
The course looks at the fundamentals of aerodynamics as a subject. It focuses on numerical methods and the physics and computation of turbulence. It is suitable for those looking to specialise in aerodynamics, from an engineering, scientific or mathematics background.
Upper 2nd class Honours degree (2.1 or equivalent) in Engineering, Mathematics, Physical Sciences or a related subject. Those candidates with relevant employment experience will be considered if they do not meet the requirements. Applications are assessed individually, and any candidates who do not match the standard profile but who have appropriate academic qualifications and/or industry experience are encouraged to apply. Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
Compulsory modules: aerothermodynamics; advanced computational methods 1; applications of CFD; turbulence: physics and modelling. Core modules: MSc research project. Optional modules: advanced computational methods 2; aeroacoustics; biological flow; design; search and optimisation (DSP) principles, methods, parameterizations and case studies; experimental techniques for aerodynamics; flow control; hypersonic and high temperature gas dynamics; race car aerodynamics; numerical methods; wing aerodynamics.
The School offers a number of scholarships to UK/EU and international students.
