Course summary

Studying an Aerospace Engineering degree gives you expert training in the theory and operation of aeronautical vehicles, from jet-powered and propeller-driven planes to gliders and helicopters. You will learn about the full engineering journey, from concept on the ground to handling in the sky. Whether your main interest concerns design, analysis, testing or flight, at Swansea we have it covered. This multi-disciplinary course provides a real world insight into the atmosphere of our planet and the cosmos beyond, as well as the technologies needed to explore them. Aerospace Engineering at Swansea is ranked Top 10 in the UK for Graduate Prospects and 6th for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2022. Aerospace Facilities include: Merlin flight simulator capsule MP521 Static MP500-2 flight simulators; a custom-built £1.2 million 18-metre wind tunnel;, a fully instrumental JetCat P120 engine and world-leading aerodynamic modelling software (used to design the BLOODHOUND SSC). Aerospace students at Swansea will get practical flying experience in our state-of-the-art flight simulator and flying lessons at our local airport. You will also cover a flight test course in aircraft performance, stability and control at a flight school in a Jetstream twin turboprop aircraft We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.
