The School of Aerospace Engineering was established on the 1st March 1999, in realizing the need to produce aerospace engineering graduates with high expertise, creativity, and societal values, and competent in following the rapid technology development in aerospace industry. The School offer postgraduate studies by research in various fields of Aerospace Engineering, leading to the Ph.D. These programmes are offered either in full-time or part-time basis.
The research programmes at the school specialise in the areas of Aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Aerospace Structures, Aerospace Composite Technology, Propulsion, Aerospace Control and Astronautics.
The degree can be pursued under the supervision of at least one academic staff of the School, in which the candidate is required to complete the research study within a stipulated time period, as specified below.
