  • Objectives
    Suitable for ambitious graduates seeking a course with a significant element of choice and looking to work in the growing and challenging aerospace or related industries. Takes you on to excellent employment prospects. Recent graduates have found positions in the aerospace, automotive and related sectors. A significant number go on to do research and higher degrees. You will be taught by staff from the Aerospace Sciences Department. Teaching is supplemented by contributions from industry and other outside organisations which reinforce the applied nature of the modules.
  • Entry requirements
    A 1st or 2nd class UK Honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, physics or an engineering discipline. Applicants who do not fulfil the standard entry requirements can apply for the Pre-Master's Course in Engineering, successful completion of which will qualify them for entry to this course for a second year of study.
  • Course description
    The Aerodynamics option is designed for students seeking a career in aerodynamic design, flow control, flow measurement or any sector in which an understanding of fluid flows plays a major role.

    The continuing search for aerodynamic refinement and performance optimisation for the next generation of aircraft and surface vehicle creates the need for specialist knowledge of fluid flow behaviour.

    Environmental issues will ensure that aerodynamic refinement will dominate the next generation of civil transport aircraft, placing even greater emphasis on flight control and flight dynamic aspects.

    In the military arena Cranfield has unparalleled experience in the design and development of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). This has drawn heavily on aerodynamic modelling, using both wind tunnels and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), as well as flight dynamics.

    Increasingly, skills in these areas are also in demand in sectors such as automotive, environmental, energy and medicine.
