Aviation Fuels & Additives Training Course 2019

8-12 April 2019

University of Sheffield, United Kingdom

 

This MSc level 35-hour course module for Aviation Fuels & Additives was originally developed in 2016 as part of a collaboration between Airbus and the UK government’s then Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. The aim of the course is to provide training to develop specialist skills in a growing field where there is currently a knowledge and skills gap in the industry. This follows the increase in new semi-synthetic fuel blends entering the market and the work around the world to accelerate development of the next generation alternative fuels. The course will be held in world-class, state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories that provide modern interdisciplinary teaching, as well as specialist engineering teaching facilities. Teaching will comprise a 50/50 split between leading academics and industrial guest lecturers. The course also looks at the environmental sustainability of the aerospace industry and includes a practical lab day at the Sheffield Low Carbon Combustion Centre.
