- Fascinated by aircraft, spacecraft and their technologies? Our Aerospace Engineering Foundation Entry Degree is the course for you. You’ll work on a range of vehicles for design, analysis, simulation and test.
- Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.
- You’ll learn about aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, systems, flight dynamics, mechanical engineering and computer-aided design. And you’ll apply this to the analysis and design of flying vehicles.
- Flight simulators reinforce your understanding of aircraft flight dynamics. Configure them to aircraft types such as civil aircraft, helicopters and even the Space Shuttle.
- A group design project will give you valuable experience in team working and development processes.
- You’ll get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications.
- You’re responsible for finding your own placement. The Faculty Placement Team and University of Central Lancashire Careers Team will support you, helping you to plan and develop your CV and applications. They also hold practice interviews.
- Placements are an invaluable opportunity to help consolidate your first two years of learning, gain experience, and radically enhance your employability. Experience gained during a placement often leads to improved final year performance and is of real benefit when you’re competing for graduate jobs.
- You can either apply for MEng Aerospace Engineering (UCAS Code 6L13) or MEng Aerospace Engineering with Industrial Placement (UCAS Code 4Q67). You have the option to transfer from one course to the other, dependent on whether you are successful in gaining a placement. The academic content of both courses is identical.
