  • Course description
    Course Description:This course addresses the vital need identified in various industry and Government reports for engineering graduates with the specialist skills to exploit future technologies for long-term economic growth in the aerospace sector. The course combines Cranfield's long standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters programmes in both aerospace and materials. Our courses receive strong support from the global aerospace industry, both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce, as well as their tiers of supplier.Start Months:Full-time: October. Part-time: throughout the year.School:School of Aerospace Transport and Manufacturing Theme:ManufacturingEntry Requirements:A first or second class UK Honours degree (or equivalent) ideally in a related subject. Other recognised professional qualifications or several years relevant industrial experience may be accepted as equivalent; subject to approval by the Course Director. For further and specific information please visit the course page. English Language:If you are an international student you will need to provide evidence that you have achieved a satisfactory test result in an English qualification. The minimum standard expected from a number of accepted courses are as follows:     IELTS - 6.5    TOEFL - 92     Pearson PTE Academic - 65    Cambridge English Scale - 180    Cambridge English: Advanced - C    Cambridge English: Proficiency - CIn addition to these minimum scores you are also expected to achieve a balanced score across all elements of the test. We reserve the right to reject any test score if any one element of the test score is too low. We can only accept tests taken within two years of your registration date (with the exception of Cambridge English tests which have no expiry date). Students requiring a Tier 4 (General) visa must ensure they can meet the English language requirements set out by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and we recommend booking a IELTS for UKVI test. Duration:Full-time MSc - one year, Part-time MSc - up to three years, Full-time PgCert - one year, Part-time PgCert - two years, Full-time PgDip - one year, Part-time PgDip - two yearsCourse Format:TaughtMSc/PgCert/PgDipOverview: This course covers how to improve and develop materials for aviation applications, including materials for airframe, aeroengine and the increased use of smart and functional materials. Plus the development of new materials, improvement of current materials, and application in new and novel structures.Who is it for?:There is a need for engineering graduates with specialist skills to develop new materials for next generation aircraft and the future aerospace industry. During this course you will cover the improvement and development of materials for aviation applications, including materials for airframe, aeroengine and the increased use of smart and functional materials.Why this course?:The course combines Cranfield's long-standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters' programmes in both aerospace and materials. Our courses receive strong support from the global aerospace industry, both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce, as well as their tiers of supplier. There is a strong emphasis on applying knowledge in the industrial environment and all teaching is in the context of industrial application.Informed by Industry:Our courses are designed to meet the training needs of industry and have a strong input from experts in their sector. Students who have excelled have their performances recognised through course awards. The awards are provided by high profile organisations and individuals, and are often sponsored by our industrial partners. Awards are presented on Graduation Day.Your teaching team:You will be taught by experts from Cranfield and industry with substantial experience in teaching, project supervision, research and consultancy. The academics have published in leading journals and books and worked closely with world-class manufacturers.    Dr Sue Impey    Dr Supriyo Ganguly    Dr David Ayre    Mr Andrew Mills    Dr Qi Zhang    Dr Glen Leighton    Dr Jeff Rao    Professor Jose Endrino    Professor John Nicholls.Accreditation:The MSc in Aerospace Materials is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer.  The MSc in Aerospace Materials is also subject to ratifcation Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) & Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET) following accreditation visit in March 2015.  Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with the full CEng registration requirements.Please note accreditation applies to the MSc award. PgDip and PgCert do not meet in full the further learning requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.Course details:The modules include lectures, workshops, case studies, tutorials and company visits.Group project:The group project experience is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. Teams of students work to solve an industrial problem. The project applies technical knowledge and provides training in teamwork and the opportunity to develop non-technical aspects of the taught programme. Part-time students can prepare a dissertation on an agreed topic in place of the group project.Industrially orientated, our team projects have support from external organisations. As a result of external engagement Cranfield students enjoy a higher degree of success when it comes to securing employment. Prospective employers value the student experience where team working to find solutions to industrially based problems are concerned.Individual project:The individual thesis project, usually in collaboration with an external organisation, offers students the opportunity to develop their research capability, depth of understanding and ability to provide materials technology and engineering solutions to real problems in aerospace.Assessment:Taught modules 40%, Group project 20% (dissertation for part-time students), Individual project 40% Funding Opportunities:To help students find and secure appropriate funding we have created a funding finder where you can search for suitable sources of funding by filtering the results to suit your needs. Cranfield Postgraduate Loan Scheme (CPLS)The Cranfield Postgraduate Loan Scheme (CPLS) is a funding programme providing affordable tuition fee and maintenance loans for full-time UK/EU students studying technology-based MSc courses.Global Manufacturing Leadership Masters ScholarshipThe Cranfield Global Manufacturing Leadership (GML) scholarships, provided by Cranfield Manufacturing contributes towards the costs of study (tuition fee plus £1000 maintenance grant). Awards are made for a maximum duration of one calendar year for full time study.Conacyt (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia)Cranfield offers competitive scholarships for Mexican students in conjunction with Conacyt (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia) in science, technology and engineering.Your career:This qualification takes you on to senior engineering positions in the aerospace industry with a focus on exploiting next generation materials. Many graduates find employment with one of their project sponsors
