Summary: Teesside University's MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering degree builds on the extensive range of subjects included in the BEng (Hons) by providing advanced topics in aerospace engineering including advanced aerodynamics and complex UAV design projects. You can also choose from a range of options in advanced subjects which include rotorcraft, flight simulation, computational fluid dynamics and production management. Course details: You are taught by experienced staff with backgrounds in either industry, Royal Air Force or Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm who bring real-life experience to the classroom. You have access to a wide range of laboratories which include flight simulators, a wind tunnel, fixed and rotary wing aircraft and a number of aircraft components. The course also incorporates a free flight test course in the second year. You fly in a Jetstream aircraft acquiring flight data as the aircraft undergoes a series of pre-planned manoeuvres. The data is used, together with theory covered in the classroom, to calculate the flight and performance characteristics of the aircraft. Transportation, accommodation and the flight tests are provided free to Teesside University students on this programme. After the course: In addition to the aerospace industries your skills and knowledge will also be relevant to the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries, to name just a few.
