MSc Aeronautical Engineering


Wrexham Glyndwr University offered me the opportunity to develop my love for Aeronautical Engineering with its HNC in Aeronautical Technology Summer School. This allowed me to fuse the knowledge I previously gathered in Spain and France into one double-degree BEng (Hons) in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.

The course had ties with the Airbus Wing Factory and Composite Centre in Broughton, whilst the degree was accredited for Chartered Engineer registration by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

I was awarded the AeroMSc bursary by the RAes and the Royal Academy of Engineering, and they offered to cover my fees in any of their accredited universities in the UK (backed by companies such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce).

I chose Wrexham Glyndwr again for their accreditation and their facilities at the St Asaph campus in the world-class Centre for Solar Energy Research (CSER).

I enjoyed the self-learning experience when researching and developing my MSc thesis. Being able to create innovative and ground breaking research with a facility like CSER has given me an opportunity to further expand my horizons of knowledge in different engineering fields.

I am proud to have aided in advancing humanity forward and changing the world, by adding my ground breaking work on the manufacturing of solar cells to worldwide scientific knowledge.

The staff support and qualifications I got at Wrexham Glyndwr is one of the reasons I am now on a wonderfully successful career path. Securing a life-changing position at Rolls Royce is absolutely one of the highest achievements anyone studying in my field can dream of, and it would not have been possible without my track record at Wrexham Glyndwr, the accreditation of the courses and the help I received from the careers centre.
