Note: Due to the course delivery location and visa restrictions, this course is NOT available to international students requiring a Tier 4 visa. Location: This is an award of Teesside University delivered in partnership with Hartlepool College (campus code 5, call 01429 295000). Course overview: Aeronautical engineering is a broad discipline including fundamental aspects of mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, materials engineering and design, as well as specialist aerospace topics such as aerodynamics, aircraft systems, flight dynamics, avionics systems and power plants. The broad content means that successful graduates have multiple career options in both aerospace and other engineering industries. We have extensive resources for delivering aeronautical engineering including an aerospace workshop with fixed wing and helicopter training aircraft, training rigs/equipment for aircraft systems (including modular radar) and a Rolls Royce RB211 turbofan engine. Other facilities supporting your programme include a flight simulator system, subsonic wind tunnel and aerospace simulation and modelling software. Tuition is provided by experienced engineering staff who have relevant industrial experience in the aeronautical engineering sector. If you have a passion for aircraft, or you simply wish to develop into an engineer with wide and varied engineering skills applicable across a wide range of industries, then this course is right for you. After the course: There are many roles that HND-qualified employees take on, with the vast majority being technician-level jobs in the aerospace/aeronautical industries or the Royal Air Force. Successful graduates have multiple career options in both aerospace and other engineering industries. If you are aiming for a higher degree then by successfully completing your HND Aeronautical Engineering you could seek direct entry to the second year of a BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering or MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering degree.
