Course summary

The foundation year of this Coventry University degree will be delivered from our CU Coventry campus. Course delivery from year 1 of the degree onwards will be from our Coventry University campus. This course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in aerospace technology. The foundation year seeks to provide opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering. Students who successfully complete their foundation year will then progress onto the Aerospace Technology BEng (Hons) degree within Coventry University’s School of Future Transport Engineering. This degree is designed to provide you with the opportunity to acquire the vital technical and management skills required to join and support the engineering teams, to solve these multi-disciplinary problems in the aerospace industry. Key benefits of the degree

  • Offers a variety of curriculum and learning opportunities, industry insight and a range of technical facilities
  • Aims to enable you to develop and critically analyse engineering technologies, components and processes utilised in the aerospace industry
  • Designed for engineering students that are interested in working across global aerospace
  • Aims to meet the demand for skilled engineers and upon successful completion, graduate career prospects could be wide-ranging, including design, manufacturing, MRO engineering and management
  • Concentrates on engineering mathematics, aircraft systems, control systems, aerodynamics, aircraft structures and manufacturing, mechanical engineering and engineering management, to provide a strong base from which to start professional work in aerospace design, using the latest software tools

Modules

The foundation year seeks to provide opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering. Foundation year modules include: Fundamental Pure Mathematics Fundamental Applied Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Fundamentals Mechanical Engineering Fundamentals The common degree first year enables you to work alongside students doing similar courses to you, to widen your knowledge and exposure to other subject areas and professions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, so you can share your insights and experience which will help you to develop and learn. First year modules: Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics Mechanical Engineering Principles for Aerospace Engineers Engineering Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering Principles Engineering Design Aerospace Engineering Skills Year Two The second year builds on the foundations of the first year to enhance your specialist knowledge of the analysis and design aspects of individual aerospace systems, along with aircraft maintenance management, aerodynamics and structures. The majority of the modules include teaching of industry standard specialist computer aided analysis tools to support your studies and future employability. Modules Aerospace Maintenance Management Aerospace Structural Analysis Avionics and Instrumentation Aircraft Systems Human Factors and Safety in Aerospace Aircraft Aerodynamics Placement Year There’s no better way to find out what you love doing than trying it out for yourself, which is why a work placement* can often be beneficial. Work placements usually occur between your second and final year of study. They’re a great way to help you explore your potential career path and gain valuable work experience, whilst developing transferable skills for the future. If you choose to do a work placement year, you will pay a reduced tuition fee* of £1250. For more information, please go to the fees and funding section. During this time, you will receive guidance from your employer or partner institution, along with your assigned academic mentor who will ensure you have the support you need to complete your placement. Final Year Year three aims to bring you to the level to enter the world of work by consolidating your knowledge and skills from year one and two. You could also work on a large final project in an area of your interest, with the support of a mentor and your Academic Personal Tutor. We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
