Loughborough University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This extended Aeronautical Engineering course has been developed to allow you to gain a broad-based knowledge of the subject, plus the chance to specialise in modern engineering disciplines. In addition to providing knowledge to underpin engineering fundamentals, mathematical modelling and simulation, a strong theme throughout the degree is group work and design. The MEng in Aeronautical Engineering will cover the basic principles of aerospace technology including aerodynamics, thermodynamics, stress analysis, mechanics, dynamics and control engineering sciences which underpin avionics, design and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). The application of these subjects to aircraft and aero-engine design and development is common across all years of the course. During Year 1, the course matches theory and application within lectures and tutorials, linked together with applied studies, such as practical instruction, computing and laboratory experiments. All Aeronautical Engineering students gain experience of testing and flight procedures during a week-long flight test course, involving up to four flights, usually in a Jetstream aircraft.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
You are assessed by a mixture of coursework and written examinations. Design-orientated work is assessed by oral presentation, project work and group assignments. The individual project is assessed by oral and poster presentations and a written report.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
