Description

Advertisement

The Masters course (MEng) in Aeronautical Engineering is based in the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering with materials and operations modules coming from other UL departments. This course will be the only one of its kind in the state and will provide training in advanced topics in Aeronautical Engineering.

The programme was developed in response to the needs of the aerospace sector, which requires graduates with advanced skills in aeronautical design, analysis and testing. The course also satisfies the Engineers Ireland requirement that a Master's degree in an engineering discipline will be the minimum educational standard for Chartered Engineer status for students graduating in 2013.

OBJECTIVES

* To equip graduates with a detailed knowledge of advanced methods in aeronautical engineering, including theoretical foundations, computational and experimental methods and engineering applications.
* To meet industrial need for graduates with the above qualities at a Master's level.
* To increase awareness of the opportunities offered by current research in Aeronautical Engineering and its application to current practice.
* To fulfil the Engineers Ireland requirements for a Master's degree in an engineering discipline as a minimum educational standard for Chartered Engineer status.
* To enhance graduates' existing educational base and employment prospects.
