Course summary

You’ll build a strong foundation in fundamental engineering concepts such as fluid mechanics, design, materials and mathematical modelling, whilst being introduced to Aerospace engineering through our ‘Explore Aerospace Engineering’ module. Modules in design and experimental practice, will help you to develop the practical workshop and laboratory-based skills necessary for all engineers, and put core programme material into perspective and to practical use. During Years 2 and 3, you’ll develop your understanding of this rapidly changing and challenging discipline studying areas including flight mechanics and performance, and aircraft and spacecraft design. We’ll also explore innovation in aerodynamics, flight performance, propulsion and materials and how these fields can be used to address the future sustainability of both air and space transport, as well as earth-bounded vehicles such as Formula 1 cars. Students who choose to take the MEng degree will learn advanced modules and carry out an industry or research-linked project that focuses on solving real engineering research and design problems. Recent projects have included designing and constructing a rocket capable of breaking the UK altitude record and designing a solar-powered racing car.
