Course summary

Aerospace Engineering is at the cutting edge of technology, applying scientific principles to the design, development and service of some of the most technologically advanced engineering products in the world. Aerospace engineers are responsible for not only the development of commercial aeroplanes and helicopters, but also spacecraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Aerospace engineers work in multidisciplinary environments, designing and supporting vehicles which operate in extreme settings. With the ability to succeed in such diverse and challenging situations, aerospace engineers are naturally versatile, opening up a wide range of career opportunities, and our graduates can be found in leading private and public sector companies worldwide. The School has an international reputation for its contributions to the development of engineering education. For example, it is currently playing a leading role in the CDIO initiative (www.cdio.org) to enhance engineering education, involving universities from around the world.
