Gas Turbine Technology - Thermal Power MSc - At the institution - Bedfordshire - England
Course Description:Gas Turbine Technology provides a comprehensive background in the design and operation of different types of gas turbines for all applications. This course is designed for those seeking a career in the design, development, operations and maintenance of power and propulsion systems. 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. The course is suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an international growth industry.Start Months:March or OctoberFull Time/ Part Time:Full Time School:School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing Theme:AerospaceEntry 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 yearCourse Format:TaughtMSc Overview: The UK continues to lead the world in power and propulsion technology. In addition to its established aerospace role, the gas turbine is finding increasing application in power generation, oil and gas pumping, chemical processing and power plants for ships and other large vehicles.Gas Turbine Technology is a specialist option of the MSc in Thermal Power providing a comprehensive background in the design and operation of different types of gas turbines for all applications.Who is it for?:This course is designed for those seeking a career in the design, development, operations and maintenance of power and propulsion systems. 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.Suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an international growth industry.Why this course?:The MSc option in Gas Turbine Technology is structured to enable you to pursue your own specific interests and career aspirations. You may choose from a wide 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 receive a thorough grounding in gas turbine design principles for aerospace, marine and industrial applications. We have been at the forefront of postgraduate education in thermal power and gas turbine technology at Cranfield since 1946. We have a global reputation for our advanced postgraduate education, extensive research and applied continuing professional development. This MSc programme benefits from a wide range of cultural backgrounds which significantly enhances the learning experience for both staff and students.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: Alstrom Canadian Forces EASA EasyJet E-ON RMC Rolls-Royce Royal 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 Pilidis Dr 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 Dr Pavlos Zachos.Our teaching team are active researchers as well as tutors and have extensive experience of gas turbine design, 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 Gas Turbine Technology masters consists of seven compulsory modules and up to seven 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: S-duct aerodynamic shape multi-objective optimisation Performance modelling of evaporative gas turbine cycles for marine applications Mechanical integrity/stress analysis of the high pressure compressor of a new engine High pressure turbine blade life analysis for a civilian derivative aircraft conducting military operations Engine performance degradation due to foulants in the environment Effects of manufacturing tolerances on gas turbine performance and components Development of a transient combustion model Numerical fan modelling and aerodynamic analysis of a high bp ratio turbofan engine Combustor modelling Impact of water ingestion on large jet engine performance and emissions Windmilling compressor and fan aerodynamics Neural networks based sensor fault diagnostics for industrial gas turbine engines Boundary layer ingestion for novel aircraft Multidisciplinary design optimisation for axial compressors Non-linear off design performance adaptation for a twin spool turbofan engine Engine degradation analysis and washing effect on performance using measured data.Assessment:Taught modules 50%, Individual research project 50%Funding Opportunities:A variety of funding, including industrial sponsorship, is available.
