Modules

This course has a common first year  The common first year enables you to work alongside students doing similar courses to you, to widen your knowledge and exposure to other subject areas and professions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, so you can share your insights and experience which will help you to develop and learn. If you discover an interest in a specific subject you have studied, upon successful completion of your first year, you could swap degrees with another course in your common first year (subject to meeting progression requirements). Common first-year courses  Aerospace Systems Engineering BEng (Hons) Aerospace Systems Engineering MEng Modules Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics Mechanical Engineering Principles for Aerospace Engineers Engineering Mathematics Electrical and Electronic Engineering Principles Engineering Design Aerospace Engineering Skills Year Two The second year builds on the foundations of the first year to enhance your specialist knowledge of the analysis and design aspects of individual aerospace systems, along with aircraft maintenance management, aerodynamics and structures. The majority of the modules include teaching of industry standard specialist computer aided analysis tools to support your studies and future employability. Modules Aerospace Maintenance Management Aerospace Structural Analysis Avionics and Instrumentation Aircraft Systems Human Factors and Safety in Aerospace Aircraft Aerodynamics Placement Year There’s no better way to find out what you love doing than trying it out for yourself, which is why a work placement* can often be beneficial. Work placements usually occur between your second and final year of study. They’re a great way to help you explore your potential career path and gain valuable work experience, whilst developing transferable skills for the future. If you choose to do a work placement year, you will pay a reduced tuition fee* of £1250. For more information, please go to the fees and funding section. During this time, you will receive guidance from your employer or partner institution, along with your assigned academic mentor who will ensure you have the support you need to complete your placement. Final Year Year three aims to bring you to the level to enter the world of work by consolidating your knowledge and skills from year one and two. You could also work on a large final project in an area of your interest, with the support of a mentor and your Academic Personal Tutor. We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
