This Group undertakes research directly relevant to the aerospace industry and also of a quite fundamental nature. Manchester has a distinguished history in turbulence modelling (from Osborne Reynolds to Brian Launder) and also in Fluids (e.g. Lamb and Goldstein), reflected in aerodynamics and heat transfer research today coupled with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) allied to interests in Dynamics, Composite Structures and Aeroelasticity.
There is strong industrial linkage with EADS, Airbus and the Group is a preferred academic partner for BAE Systems in experimental aerodynamics and dynamic loads. EU collaboration is particularly strong. There are excellent test facilities for dynamics and aerodynamics with large wind tunnels at the Goldstein Laboratory.

Academic Requirement - Applicants for admission will normally hold a Bachelors degree or equivalent qualification. The level of attainment for the Bachelor's degree will normally be equivalent to that of a Second Class Honours UK Bachelor's degree. Professional qualifications other than a Bachelor's Degree and/or relevant and appropriate experience may be taken into account for entry to an MSc by Research degree.
Langauage Requirement - In addition, all applicants will need to demonstrate competency in the English language. Applicants who do not already posses a recognised English Language qualification will need to take a recognised test such as IELTS or TOEFL and attain a minimum of IELTS 6.5 ( with no sub test less than 5.5), TOEFL 570 usually with 5.0 in the TWE (Computer-based 230 or above or Internet-based 88-89 or above). Other English Language qualifications / tests can be considered including those offered by the University's English Language Teaching Centre.
