Explosive growth is currently taking place in the the unmanned systems industry. This means that there is an increased demand for people with the skills to work as unmanned vehicle systems designers. The MSc Unmanned Aircraft Systems Design course at the University of Southampton has been created to provide graduate engineers with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in this exciting industry.
Unmanned aircraft hold the key to the future in areas such as exploration, and transportation. This program will enable you to start a fascinating career on the brink of national intelligence and technological advancements with a masters in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Design. Sometimes referred to as drones, UAVs, UAS or RPAS, this technology is revolutionising the ability to monitor and understand our environment.
This industry-led course focuses on the cutting-edge design of these sophisticated vehicles and is ideally suited to engineers looking to specialise or to enter into this fast-paced industry.
The University of Southampton has a strong reputation in autonomous systems and students will be taught by leaders in the field. You will be working with people who have achieved many world firsts including: SULSA, the first 3D printed plane.
Practical learning is a fundamental part of this one-year course. Students will design, build and fly your own unmanned vehicle as part of a group design project. To do this the University will provide you with access to world class design and testing facilities such as wind tunnels and rapid prototyping labs. In addition, core modules will provide your studies with a solid foundation in subject areas such as aerospace control systems and avionics.
