Description

Advertisement

The School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering has a long, strong and unique tradition in UK in Aerospace Design, Helicopters, Heat Transfer, Aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Flow Diagnostics. This programme exploits and builds on those strengths and basically recognises particular combinations of subjects unique to Manchester. The programme also exploits our strong links with BAe Systems, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, DSTL, USAF, North West Aerospace Alliance, North West Development Agency, SBAC etc.

This MSc aims to produce high quality graduates with specialist training in Aerospace Engineering who will be suitable for employment in the engineering industries and consultancies. Aerospace engineering graduates are highly valued and are currently in great demand. The Manchester programme specifically seeks to serve this growing industry requirement. The programme is suitable for engineering and science graduates, engineering professionals working in technical/commercial management and they want specialise in Aerospace Engineering, engineering specialists/generalists, management/technical pilots, consultants, industry analysts etc.

Teaching and learning

The taught part of the programme is organised in mandatory units and optional units taught in semesters 1 and 2. Students will be required to choose one optional unit each semester at the beginning of the programme. Typical core course units include: Aerospace Design, Research Methods, Aerodynamics, Propulsion and Systems. Typical optional course units include (not all the options may be offered every year): Composites, Helicopters, Manufacturing, CFD, Numerical Stress Analysis, Flight Simulation, Heat Transfer, Aeroacoustics and Management.

Progression and assessment

To obtain an MSc qualification, students must pass in both the taught element of the programme and submit a satisfactory dissertation. To pass the taught element of the programme, students must attend and satisfy examination and coursework requirements in each of the course units. The period May to September involves the dissertation topic of the programme (though a start on the project will be made in semester 2). Project dissertations may be carried out either on-campus, or within industry; external bodies will be selected and agreed with the University. Students may in special circumstances carry out their research overseas. A list of projects will be made available at the beginning of the programme. A suitable Academic Project Supervisor will be appointed for every student. For research based outside the University, an External Project Supervisor will also be appointed with the agreement of the Programme Director.

Requirements

The standard academic entry requirements for this programme is a Second Class UK Honours degree or international equivalent in a relevant science or engineering discipline

English language

All applicants will need to demonstrate competency in the English language. Applicants who do not already possess a recognised English Language qualification will need to take a recognised test such as IELTS or Pearson and attain the required English Language score:

* IELTS: overall score 6.5 with no sub-test below 5.5
* Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic): overall score of at least 59, with no sub-test below 51
* IBT TOEFL: overall score of at least 90, with no sub-test below 22

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
TOEFL iBT® test: 90

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
