Summary: This BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering with Industry degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree and includes a work placement year. The foundation year helps you develop your knowledge in mathematics and other important subjects to enable you to proceed confidently through the remainder of the programme. Course details: The full degree 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 and aircraft systems, aircraft structures and propulsion systems. As part of your course you take a free flight test course in your second year. You fly in a Jetstream aircraft acquiring flight data as the aircraft undergoes a series of pre-planned manoeuvres. You use data and theory covered in the classroom, to calculate the flight and performance characteristics of the aircraft. Transportation, accommodation and the flight tests are provided. 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. 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 that is both enjoyable and rewarding in terms of career prospects. Most aerospace engineering graduates seek careers in companies directly or indirectly linked to the aerospace industry. Your skills and knowledge will also be relevant to other sectors such as the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries.

Assessment method

Your programme includes a range of assessments including coursework assignments, project reports and formal examinations. You are expected to attend a range of lectures, small-group tutorials and hands-on laboratory sessions. Part of your programme also involves a substantial research-based project. The programme provides a number of contact teaching and assessment hours (lectures, tutorials, laboratory work, projects and examinations). You are also expected to spend time on your own - this self-study time is to review lecture notes, prepare coursework assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments. You typically spend four out of five days a week in classes and laboratories at the University. One day each week transport is provided to take you to our facility in Hartlepool to use the laboratories, facilities, workshops and aircraft to perform group design and project work, as well as laboratory work associated with some of your technical modules.
