Division of Aerospace Engineering and Fluid Mechanics
Research within the Division of Aerospace Engineering and Fluid Mechanics focuses on a variety of problems relevant to the modern aerospace and aeronautical engineering sector, from new space propulsion methods for micro/nanosatellites to the algorithmic scheduling of aeroplane taxiing in large UK airports. As a Division we are also interested in the multiscale physics and numerics of fluid flows, both single-phase and multi-phase, for applications that span from additive manufacturing to nanofluidics, and problems of solid/fracture mechanics.
We aim to endow our students with the highest level of technical competence, so that they can apply to some of the best aerospace/aeronautics companies worldwide or decide to contribute with their skills to other sectors. Because aerospace engineering pushes technical knowledge to the limit, our graduates are highly sought after in all industrial and service sectors where solid analytical skills are valued.
