Postgraduate study

More than a century since Bristol produced its first aircraft, the South West is now one of the largest centres for aerospace in Europe. The Aerospace Engineering department has close links with major industrial companies, including AgustaWestland, Airbus and Rolls-Royce. Our curriculum is tightly linked to our research and our academics are world leaders in aerodynamics, composites, control, vibrations and systems.

Research programmes

  • PhD / MSc by research Aerospace Engineering

    Research within the department and faculty is organised via cross-faculty research groups. Research interests in Aerospace Engineering are pursued via three major interest groups: fluid flow and aerodynamics, Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science (ACCIS), dynamics and control.
