Aerospace Engineering with a Year Abroad at Queen Mary University of London - UCAS

Course summary

Discover how to develop major aviation innovations and find sustainable solutions to make engineering cleaner. From faster cars to greener aircraft, aerospace engineers are advancing innovations in today’s world. Join our Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) accredited course to become part of an industry at the forefront of change, supporting other sectors such as renewable energy and sea transport. We were the first university in the UK to provide a degree in this area in 1907. Today, we use our years of experience to help you hone your skills in top facilities. Our aero lab has everything from wind tunnels to a flight simulator, an anechoic chamber to a jet engine simulator.  Immersed in industry  Our academic team are experts in all four areas of the field: aerodynamics, propulsion and power, aerostructures, and systems. We also bring in guest speakers from organisations including Airbus and Altair Engineering. You’ll hear about specific issues, from the effect of pandemics on aviation to modern energy challenges.  You’ll start exploring your options and growing your network throughout the course. Our Industrial Liaison Forum day is a chance to impress potential employers as you present your project findings. Aviation, defence forces or research centres – where will you apply your skills when you graduate?   Our Aerospace Engineering programmes have been accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAES) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.   Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).   An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Our BEng programmes meet the academic requirements for IEng and our MEng programmes meet the academic requirements for CEng. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
