Meet your lecturer: Dr William Crowther

Dr William Crowther is a Reader in Engineering and leads the Advanced Aerospace Design unit. 

“The Advanced Aerospace Design unit provides an opportunity for Aerospace MSc students to undertake a two semester design, build and test group activity based around an autonomous unmanned air vehicle application. Groups of around 8 students take on a variety of roles depending on their area of interest including for example structures, avionics, aerodynamics, project manager, and manufacturing. Students learn to apply theoretical knowledge in a practical engineering context culminating in demonstration of fully autonomous flight at the end of the unit.
