Summary: Teesside University's BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering with Industry degree (including a placement year) includes a range of fundamental topics in mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, materials engineering and design, as well as specialist aerospace and aeronautical topics such as space mechanics, aerodynamics, aircraft performance, flight dynamics, avionics, aircraft systems, aircraft structures, aircraft design and propulsion systems. Course details: You are taught by experienced staff with backgrounds in either industry or the Royal Air Force who can bring real-life experience to the classroom. You have access to a wide range of well-equipped laboratories which include fixed and rotary wing aircraft and their components. The course also incorporates a free flight test course in the second year. You fly in a Jetstream aircraft acquiring flight data as the aircraft undergoes a series of pre-planned manoeuvres. The data is used, together with theory covered in the classroom, to calculate the flight and performance characteristics of the aircraft. Transportation, accommodation and the flight tests are provided free to Teesside University students on this programme. Your degree programme combines an employability-enhancing curriculum with significant practical work, small manageable laboratory group sizes, friendly and accessible lecturing staff. After the course: Most students who join an aerospace engineering programme do so because of their passion for flight and engineering, a combination not only enjoyable but also quite rewarding in terms of career prospects. Most aerospace engineering graduates seek careers in companies directly or indirectly linked to the aerospace industry, however the skills and knowledge you will acquire on your course will also be relevant to other sectors such as the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries, to name just a few.
