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.
Graduates progress into a wide variety of careers within engineering (eg aerospace, automotive/motorsport, transportation, consulting engineering), academia, public services (eg civil service, air traffic management) and commerce (eg IT, finance).
A higher degree can accelerate your career significantly, particularly into positions of greater responsibility. Furthermore, it increasingly provides entrepreneurial opportunities, exploiting skills and knowledge acquired during the Aerospace Engineering programme offered by the University of Bristol .
