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.
Organised by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), this event will bring together the world’s aviation community to discuss the sustainable development of aviation. Delegates will hear the views of specialists and experts, and participate in interactive panel sessions on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), sustainable aviation fuels, sustainable mobility and new energy options.
