  • Course description
    Thermal Power - Aerospace Propulsion Option MSc: Course Description: Aerospace Propulsion provides a comprehensive background in the design and operation of different types of propulsion systems for aerospace applications. The course is designed for those seeking a career in the design, development, operation and maintenance of propulsion systems.  The course is suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an established international industry. Graduates are provided with the skills that allow them to deliver immediate benefits in a very demanding and rewarding workplace and therefore are in great demand.  Start Months: March or October Full Time/ Part Time:Full-time School:School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing  Theme: Aerospace  Entry 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 - C In 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 Course format: TaughtMScOverview:The key technological achievement underlying the development and growth of the aerospace industry has been the design and development of efficient and economical propulsion systems. Major efforts are also now being dedicated to the development of new technologies relevant to the propfan and variable cycle engines. Aerospace Propulsion is a specialist option of the MSc in Thermal Power. Who is it for?: This course has been designed for those seeking a career in the design, development, operation and maintenance of propulsion systems. Suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an established international industry. Graduates are provided with the skills that allow them to deliver immediate benefits in a very demanding and rewarding workplace and therefore are in great demand.   Why this course?: This option is structured to enable you to pursue your own specific interests and career aspirations. You may choose from a range of optional modules and select an appropriate research project. An intensive two-week industrial management course is offered which assists in achieving exemptions from some engineering council requirements. You will gain a comprehensive background in the design and operation of different types of propulsion systems for aerospace applications, whilst looking at the methods of propulsion with the main focus on air-breathing engines and the use of gas turbines for propulsion.We have been at the forefront of postgraduate education in aerospace propulsion at Cranfield since 1946. We have a global reputation for our advanced postgraduate education, extensive research and applied continuing professional development. Our graduates secure relevant employment within six months of graduation, and you can be sure that your qualification will be valued and respected by employers around the world. Informed by Industry: Our industry partners help support our students in a number of ways - through guest lectures, awarding student prizes, recruiting course graduates and ensuring course content remains relevant to leading employers.The Industrial Advisory Panel meets annually to maintain course relevancy and ensure that graduates are equipped with the skills and knowledge required by leading employers. Knowledge gained from our extensive research and consultancy activity is also constantly fed back into the MSc programme. The Thermal Power MSc Industrial Advisory Panel is comprised of senior engineers from companies such as:AlstromCanadian ForcesEASAEasyJetE-ONRMCRolls-RoyceRoyal Air Force (RAF). Your teaching team: You will be taught by experienced academic staff at Cranfield with many years of industrial experience including:Professor Pericles PilidisDr David MacManus Dr Joao Amaral Teixeira Dr Giuseppina Di Lorenzo Dr Uyioghosa Igie Dr Panagiotis Laskaridis Dr Yiguang Li Dr Devaiah Nalianda Dr Theoklis Nikolaidis Dr Vassilios Pachidis Professor Mark Savill Dr Suresh Sampath Dr Bobby Sethi Pavlos Zachos.Our teaching team are active researchers as well as tutors and have extensive experience of aerospace propulsion, in both industrial and research and development environments.Continuing close collaboration with major engine manufacturers in both the UK and overseas, through teaching and research, ensures that this course maintains the relevance and professionalism for which it is internationally renowned. Knowledge gained working with our clients is continually fed back into the teaching programme, to ensure that you benefit from the very latest knowledge and techniques affecting industry.  The course also includes visiting lecturers from industry who will relate the theory to current best practice. Accreditation: The MSc in Thermal Power is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer.  Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) Course details:The taught programme for the Aerospace Propulsion masters consists of eight compulsory modules and up to six optional modules. The modules are generally delivered from October to April.Individual project:You are required to submit a written thesis describing an individual research project carried out during the course. Many individual research projects have been carried out with industrial sponsorship, and have often resulted in publication in international journals and symposium papers. This thesis is examined orally in September in the presence of an external examiner. Previous individual research projects have included:Design of an experimental test rig facility for an axial compressorEnergy management in a hybrid turbo-electric, hydrogen fuelled, hale UAVCivil aircraft intake, nacelle and nozzle aerodynamicsThe computation of adiabatic isobaric combustion temperatureAir filtration systems for helicoptersNacelle parametric design space explorationDistributed propellers assessment for turboelectric distributed propulsionAerodynamic analysis of the flowfield distortion within a serpentine intakeGreen runway :impact of water ingestion on medium and small jet engine performance and emissionsDistributed propulsion systems boundary layer ingestion for uav aircraftPreliminary design of a low emissions combustor for a helicopter engineCompressor design and performance simulation through the use of a through-flow methodEstimation of weight and mechanical losses of a pts for a geared turbofan engineOptimisation of turbine disc for a small turbofan engineModelling of tip leakage flows in axial flow high pressure gas turbineAerodynamic modelling and adjoint-based shape optimisation of separate-jet exhaust systemsPreliminary design & performance analysis of a combustor for UAV.
