Course summary

The overall aim of this course is to ensure graduates have a comprehensive engineering education combined with specialist knowledge of aerospace engineering. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) The aerospace industry is seen as a core sector in the industrial development strategies of many countries, and the UK is a leader in providing aircraft systems. The aerospace field is extensive and services a rapidly expanding and exciting market. Graduates from this course will find many opportunities for well-paid jobs, such as designing aerospace components and systems or managing engineers and technicians. The multidisciplinary nature of the subject area provides career opportunities in a broad spectrum of industries, from design and manufacture to process control in the aerospace sector. Graduates may also study for a taught postgraduate degree, MSc, or a research degree, MPhil/PhD, within the School. Aerospace engineering deals with diverse engineering problems in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, energy conversion, vibration, design & manufacturing, materials science, and electromechanical systems, among others. Studying Aerospace Engineering will give you practical skills that will help you change the world, as you will have access to our state-of-the-art engineering laboratories, plus new specialist equipment and technologies that are at the forefront of engineering developments. Our laboratories include:

  • aerospace laboratory with sub-sonic and supersonic wind tunnels, including aircraft flight demonstrator equipment
  • industrial- and computer-aided CAD design laboratories
  • thermo-fluid laboratory
  • machine workshop
  • composites laboratory
  • electronics and telecommunications laboratory
  • metrology laboratory
  • materials testing laboratory
  • plus other facilities, including engine test facilities, 3D printing facilities, and more
In addition, you will have access to new specialist equipment and technology that is at the forefront of engineering developments. Responding to the regional and the national shortage of graduate-qualified engineers, the University of Wolverhampton has invested over £10m in new engineering facilities at its Telford Innovation Campus and City Campus in Wolverhampton. The Telford Innovation Campus is located close to Telford town centre in rural Shropshire, and close to many amenities. In addition, our relationships with RAF Cosford, MOOG, Collins Aerospace, etc., provide a unique learning experience for our students. Our offers ensure that our graduates are prepared for employment. We provide additional opportunities for students to gain employability skills, through employability workshops, engineering seminars, club activities, and field trips to engineering companies. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
