About this course Aerospace engineering at Kingston has an innovative curriculum, excellent links with industry and cutting-edge facilities. It is the perfect place to study aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, dynamics and materials. You’ll put theory straight into practice, applying what you learn to the problems of aerospace design and taking part in a group design project. We offer both BEng and MEng degrees. The MEng has an extra year of study and can provide a faster route to chartered engineer (CEng) status. It also has the option to integrate an industrial placement with further studies (subject to accreditation by RAeS).
Examples of modules: Year 1 Core - Engineering Design and Professional Practice, Engineering Mechanics, Structures and Materials, Engineering Mathematics and Computing Applications, Fluid Mechanics and Engineering Science. Year 2 Core - Aerodynamics, Propulsion and Analytical Methods, Aerospace Structures, Materials and Dynamics, Electronic Systems, Control and Computing, Engineering Project Management/ Final Year Core - Space Vehicle Design. Final Year Optional - Further Aerodynamics and Propulsion and Computational Techniques,Further Aerospace Structures, Materials and Dynamics, Business Management and Group Project, Individual Project.
Teaching includes lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical laboratory sessions, backed up by design classes and workshop sessions.
