About the Aerospace Sciences Research Division
The University of Glasgow has been the home of Aerospace Research for over 60 years. This long standing activity has culminated in the Division of Aerospace Sciences having internationally recognised expertise in all areas of Aeronautics and Aerospace Systems. Our main research themes include:
Our research base is enhanced by our extensive array of facilities which provide the unique practical edge needed for our research. These facilities include:
Naturally our world class research involves collaboration with major national and international organisations within the aerospace sector and beyond. For example we have very strong links with industry and government labs including BAE Systems, SELEX, Lockheed Martin, U.S. Navy (ONR), Dowty, Thales, DSTL and Woodward. The interaction with our industrial partners complements our research goals and drives our activities in industrially relevant directions.
All of these factors enable the Division of Aerospace Sciences to produce world class research that tackles the state of the art challenges in aerospace and related technologies.
