Summary

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.
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 3rd in the UK and 1st in Scotland (Complete University Guide 2020).
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.
The school has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the school’s commitment to supporting women in scientific studies and careers, and to improving the working environment for all.
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

- INTEGRATED SYSTEMS DESIGN PROJECT M

Optional courses (four chosen)
- ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS 5

- AEROELASTICITY AND AEROACOUSTICS 5 or AIRCRAFT VIBRATION AND AEROELASTICITY 4

- AEROSPACE PROPULSION M

- AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE GUIDANCE SYSTEMS M

- COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS 5 or COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS 4

- FAULT DETECTION, ISOLATION AND RECOVERY

- RADAR AND ELECTRO-OPTIC SYSTEMS M

Project or dissertation
MSC PROJECT or DISSERTATION PROJECT

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.
