This MSc aims to build your knowledge of the design of flying vehicles such as aircraft, missiles, airships and spacecraft.
Cranfield has been at the forefront of postgraduate education in aerospace engineering since 1946. Aerospace Vehicle Design at Cranfield University was one of the original foundation courses of the College of Aeronautics. Graduates of this course are eligible to join the Cranfield College of Aeronautics Alumni Association (CCAAA), an active community which holds a number of networking and social events throughout the year.
One unique feature of the course is that we have four external examiners, two from industry who assess the group design project and two from academia who assess the individual research project.
Cranfield University is very well located for students from all over the world, and offers a range of library and support facilities to support your studies. This enables students from all over the world to complete this qualification whilst balancing work/life commitments.
The taught programme for the Aerospace Vehicle Design masters is generally delivered from October to March. Modules for each option vary – please refer to option MSc course pages for descriptions of compulsory modules which must be undertaken. Students have an extensive choice of optional modules to match specific interests.
The MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design is valued and respected by employers worldwide. The applied nature of this course ensures that our graduates are ready to be of immediate use to their future employer and has provided sufficient breadth of understanding of multi-discipline design to position them for accelerated career progression.
This course prepares graduates for careers as project design engineers, systems design, structural design or avionic engineers in aerospace or related industries, with the aim of progressing to technical management/chief engineer. Graduates from the MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design can therefore look forward to a varied choice of challenging career opportunities in the above disciplines.
