Aerospace Engineering and Management

The Masters in Aerospace Engineering & Management introduces you to contemporary business and management issues while increasing your depth of knowledge in your chosen aerospace engineering speciality.

**Contact: pgadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk
January or September start
MSc: 12 months full-time**

**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

The University of Glasgow has been the home of aerospace research for over 60 years. This long-standing activity has culminated in the Division of Aerospace Sciences having internationally recognised expertise in all areas of aeronautics and aerospace systems.

You will be taught jointly by staff from the School of Engineering and the Adam Smith Business School. You will benefit from their combined resources and expertise and from an industry-focused curriculum.

Aeronautical Engineering at Glasgow is ranked 7th in the UK and 1st in Scotland (Complete University Guide 2019).

If you have an engineering background, but with little management experience and you are looking to broaden your knowledge of management while also furthering your knowledge of aerospace engineering, this programme is designed for you.

Students in this programme can benefit from access to our outstanding facilities: including several wind tunnels, a flight simulation lab, an autonomous unmanned vehicle (UAV) laboratory, helicopter test rig laboratories, structural testing apparatus and computer labs for modelling and simulation.
This programme has a September and January intake.*
*For suitably qualified candidates.

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

There are two semesters of taught material and a summer session working on a project or dissertation. September entry students start with management courses and January entry students with engineering courses.

**Semester 1**
You will be based in the Adam Smith Business School, developing knowledge and skills in management principles and techniques. We offer an applied approach, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.
**Core courses**
- Contemporary issues in human resource management

- Managing creativity and innovation

- Managing innovative change

- Marketing management

- Operations management

- Project management.

**Semester 2**
You will study engineering courses, which aim to enhance your group working and project management capability at the same time as improving your depth of knowledge in chosen aerospace engineering subjects.
**Core courses**
- Integrated systems design project.

**Optional courses (four chosen)**
- Autonomous vehicle guidance systems

- Composite airframe structures

- Fault detection, isolation and reconfiguration

- Introduction to aeroelasticity

- Introduction to computational fluid dynamics

- Introduction to wind engineering

- Radar and electro-optic systems

- Robust control 5

- Spacecraft systems 2.

**Project or dissertation**
You will undertake an individual project or dissertation work in the summer period (May-August). This will give you an opportunity to apply and consolidate the course material and enhance your ability to do independent work, as well as present results in the most appropriate format. Project and dissertation options are closely linked to staff research interests. September entry students have a choice of management dissertation topics in addition to aerospace engineering projects, and January entry students have a choice of aerospace engineering projects.

**Programme alteration or discontinuation**
The University of Glasgow endeavours to run all programmes as advertised. In exceptional circumstances, however, the University may withdraw or alter a programme. For more information, please see: Student contract.

**CAREER PROSPECTS**
Career opportunities include positions in aerospace, defence, renewable energy, nuclear energy and management.

Entry requirements

MSc: Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. Additionally, a sound understanding of programme relevant core engineering principles, such as mathematics, is expected and must be demonstrated in a 2.1 or equivalent in core subject components from your Honours degree .

International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
