Aviation - Masters Degree (Research)
The School of Aviation offers a number of research degrees.
Entry to the Masters by Research in Aviation is generally available to those who have a three or four year degree and where some research experience has been already obtained. This experience might be obtained in an honours degree, a masters coursework degree, or in the working environment.
Generally a Masters degree will take two years full-time or four years on a part-time basis. The equivalent level of research needed is approximately equal to one major or two minor research papers published in international journals. It is expected that, as well as completing a thesis, manuscripts will be submitted to international refereed journals for dissemination world-wide.
In general, a prospective student is expected to negotiate and discuss a project with their intended supervisor and jointly agree on a topic and the methodology to be used before a formal application is made. An offer for enrolment requires the approval of the Supervisor, the Head of School, the Higher Degree Committee of the Faculty and the Graduate Research School.
