Gas Turbine Technology (Option of Thermal Power MSc)

Cranfield University

Masters Degree , Uncategorised

Course Description

The United Kingdom continues to lead the world in power and propulsion technology. In addition to its established aerospace role the gas turbine is finding increasing application in power generation, oil and gas pumping, chemical processing and power plants for ships and other large vehicles. The MSc course in Thermal Power with specialisation in Gas Turbine Technology makes accessible the advanced engineering skills required for a challenging career in these fields. Although you will receive a thorough grounding in gas turbine design principles for aerospace, marine and industrial applications, we also structure the course to enable you to pursue your own specific interests and career aspirations. You may choose from a wide range of optional courses and select an appropriate research project. Structure A thorough grounding is provided in gas turbine design principles for aerospace, marine and industrial applications. The teaching programme comprises a series of lecture courses and an extensive Research or Design Project. The lecture programme consists of approximately 15 courses nine of these are compulsory and the remainder are selected from a list of ten options. Typical lecture courses are: ? Gas Turbine Theory and Performance ? Turbomachinery ? Combustors ? Intakes, Diffusers and Exhausts ? Engine Systems ? Gas Turbine Applications ? Blade Cooling. Research project In addition to attending the lecture programme, the candidate is required to submit a written thesis describing a research project carried out during the course. This thesis is examined orally in September in the presence of an external examiner. Entry requirements 1st or 2nd class UK honours degree (or its equivalent) in engineering, mathematics, physics or an applied science. Candidates with a degree in a less applicable discipline, or mature applicants with alternative qualifications may be accepted onto a two-year programme in which the preliminary year is directed to the establishment of the necessary engineering background. Funding A variety of sources including industrial sponsorship. Details of each prospective student s financial position will be discussed and appropriate advice and help given during a selection interview.
