Aerodynamics and Computation

For engineering, mathematics and science graduates with a strong background in fluid dynamics or aerodynamics, our MSc Aerodynamics and Computation programme will provide you with the opportunity to continue your education and specialisation. Our computation programme focuses on numerical methods and the physics and computation modelling of turbulence. This will enhance your knowledge of flow physics and your ability to use state-of-the-art computational
tools to improve industrial designs.

Entry requirements

MSc: Upper second class honours degree (2:1 or equivalent) in Engineering, Mathematics, Physical Sciences or a related subject. Those candidates with relevant employment experience will be considered if they do not meet the requirements. Applications are assessed individually, and any candidates who do not match the standard profile but who have appropriate academic qualifications and/or industry experience are encouraged to apply.

Course modules

Compulsory modules include: Aerothermodynamics; Advanced
Computational Methods I; Applications of CFD; Turbulence: Physics and Modelling; MSc Research Project Optional modules include: four from: Advanced Computational
Methods II, Aeroacoustics; Biological Flow; Design, Search and
Optimisation; Experimental Methods for Aerodynamics; Aeroelasticity; Flow Control; Hypersonic and High Temperature Gas Dynamics; Race Car Aerodynamics; Wing Aerodynamics; Numerical Methods

Assessment methods

To include unseen written examinations and assessed coursework in the form of problem solving exercises, laboratory reports, design exercises, essays, and individual and group projects. Experimental, research and design skills are assessed through laboratory reports, coursework exercises and oral presentations.
