This Master teaches how to design aircraft components to ensure airworthiness and to understand the loading that aircraft must be able to withstand. The demands on aircraft components are extremely robust; as they must adhere to the extreme loads and stresses the vehicle is exposed to, as well as rigorous safety standards. You will learn the required skills and techniques to design aircraft components, as well as understand the theory behind them.
You will be taught six modules which include lectures, tutorials and practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.
