Study type Research


Research within the department and faculty is organised via cross-faculty research groups. Research interests are pursued via four major sections:

  • Fluid Flow and Aerodynamics

  • Bristol Composites Institute (BCI)

  • Dynamics and Control

  • Robotics.

This work is supported by at least 50 academic staff, more than 70 research staff and over 240 postgraduate students, plus a highly experienced administrative and technical support team.

There is a wide range of research in the department, spanning experimental, numerical, theoretical and computational, and all is applied to aerospace-related problems, for example fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, wind turbines and UAVs.

All postgraduates would expect to publish in high-quality journals and present at international conferences. Hence, research programmes are aimed at independent and self-motivated applicants.

Applicants should contact a potential academic adviser to discuss available projects before submitting an application.
